Paper No. 1: Panel Discussion: Mold Dryness and its Impact on Shell Strength Julie Markee, Key Process Innovations, ICI Director; Chris Whitehouse, Ceradyne, Inc. – A 3M Company, Booth 113


At the 2018 ICI Fall Technical Conference, three foundries presented papers on drying data gathered at their foundries during the panel discussion titled, “A Discussion About Drying”. These papers resulted in a lot of discussion about whether the level of dryness impacts shell strength. As a follow–up, DePuy Synthes has gathered additional data around the level of dryness in the mold and correlated this data to casting quality. In addition, 3M has used the same slurry and measured MOR strength at varying levels of mold dryness. Both of these tests were conducted utilizing the kpi–dryÔ mold dryness system developed by Key Process Innovations. From this data, foundries will be able to understand how mold dryness impacts shell strength and casting quality.


Paper No. 2: How it’s Made: School of Fish Art Casting


Erich Knoespel, Artcast, Inc. O


“School of Fish, just hit print” will focus on sculpture enlargement and how it’s made through the use of digital foundry ready technologies. This presentation is an extension of the article in the August issue of INCAST. Erich will discuss other methods of enlargement and why printing was the right choice in this case. He will also discuss some of the process standards that Artcast uses when working with digital investment casting foundry patterns.


12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.


1:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
