Abstract

Furan-No-Bake (FNB) sand mold system is a technology in high demand due to its good surface finish, dimensional stability and shakeout characteristics. It is a very tedious process to characterize the quality of FNB cast product due to the complex existence of parameters that affect the quality of the motor body casted product. In this paper, a mathematical model has been developed based on the experimental data, and sensitivity analysis was performed to identify and compare the influence of the casting parameters such as resin percentage, catalyst percentage and temperature of sand on the compressive strength of the mold and to know the parameters that must be carefully controlled.


Description

Foundry industries are emerging very fast in the global market. The current global market expects quality product with minimum cost. It is a very great challenge for a manufacturer to sustain in a highly competitive market. The casting process is the most popular manufacturing process. It involves pouring of metal into a mold; hence, the mold material and molding method must be selected with care. Furan-No-Bake (FNB) sand mold system is a technology in high demand due to its good surface finish, dimensional stability and shakeout characteristics.
