Areas of application of cast iron coring
Industrial sectors such as the automotive industry for components constantly increase the quality requirements for cast components for components such as gearboxes, motors or brakes. URACA relies on the high-pressure water jet method for cast iron core removal. It allows extensive cleaning and gutting of cast products and removes dirt or residues even in areas that are hard to reach. Even fine structures and channels can be gutted precisely without damaging the components.
Application examples for cast iron core removal include pistons, precision castings, steering housings, crankcases, cylinder heads, hydraulic parts, gear cases, cylinder blocks, cast iron housings, cast screws and casting molds.
Special challenges of casting gutting
Due to the high demands of the industry and ever more complex and shorter production processes, cast iron core removal faces special challenges. For example, the automotive industry places extreme demands on manufacturing accuracy and reproducibility. At the same time, just-in-time production requires punctual availability of the required components.
Today foundries are no longer forced to produce and deliver workpieces on time, but also to make them ready for installation, properly gutted and completely washed. Cast iron core removal with the high-pressure water jet method provides the foundries with suitable solutions to meet the requirements of their customers.
Advantages of the cast iron core removal with high pressure water jet method
- reliable removal of residues
- Also possible in places that are hard to reach
- very gentle treatment of the workpiece
- Cleaning filigree structures without damage
