Paper No. 5: Slurry Analysis & Shell Material Testing Methods


Dave Berta, Sam Duncan, Ransom & Randolph Investment casting slurries are complex mixtures of materials that need to be controlled in order to produce ceramic shells able to withstand the forces and temperatures required to yield desired castings. In order to control colloidal-based slurries, it is important to understand basic colloidal silica chemistry and properly utilize testing techniques and procedures to measure and control various ceramic shell properties. This presentation will review the keys to a good slurry control program, including testing frequency and adjustments. It will also study historical and newly developed testing procedures used to measure and control various ceramic shell properties. These tests can be used to benchmark shell properties within a shell system or to compare different shell systems to one another.

Paper No. 6: The Smart Manufacturing Institute John Dyck, CESMII CESMII was created in 2017, funded by the


US Government - Department of Energy with $70 million dollars, as a non-profit Institute to drive Smart Manufacturing. We are branded as the Clean Energy, Smart Manufacturing, Innovation Institute. But you’ll know us as “CESMII - The Smart Manufacturing Institute,” because Smart Manufacturing is the ultimate solution for productivity, security, agility, delivering innovation, and the cleanest energy of all, the energy that was not used in production, wasted with scrap or during periods of inefficient operation. The Investment Casting Institute has recently become affiliated with CESMII. Mr. John Dyck, CESMII CEO, will introduce the organization to ICI Members, addressing his vision for how the investment casting industry can benefit from the relationship.

Paper No. 7: Evaluation of a Low-Cost Material Extrusion Printer for Investment Casting Applications Tom Mueller, Mueller AMS 3D printed patterns have been used to create prototype investment castings for more than 25 years now and have become the preferred method of creating prototype castings. Not only do printed patterns save time and money in the development of investment castings, they reduce the risk of cost overruns and delays in market introduction of the product incorporating that casting. In this paper, the printer and filament are evaluated relative to more common printed patterns in areas including accuracy, surface roughness, cost, speed, and ease of casting.

Preparing our Future Engineers and Technologists, A Panel Discussion Brian Lewis, Foundry Educational Foundation Industry sustainability, as it pertains to human resources, has been a long, growing concern for many of our foundries. For the past decade, foundries have expressed “Attracting, Training and Retaining Talent” as a top concern. University panelists will review their overall metalcasting and materials science program and address why investment casting holds importance to the university.
