Event description

Description

The Investment Casting Institute (ICI), along with Tinker Air Force Base (TAFB) and the Youngstown Busines Incubator (YBI), is hosting an Investment Casting Applications Seminar to meet the needs of Tinker AFB and promote the education of Investment Casting and Additive Manufacturing amongst their personnel. The two-day seminar will address the following:

DAY 1 (July 30, 2019 - 7:30AM to 4:30PM)

  • Why Investment Casting?Addresses part characteristics including material, geometry, application, and demand which are suited to manufacturing by investment casting.

  • High-Level Process Overview – Provides a general understanding of process flow.

  • Process Step Description – A review of each process step, identifying various methods employed to achieve the prescribed result. Key Input Variables and Key Output Variable shall be addressed in each case. The following Process Steps will be addressed:

    • Pattern Manufacture – Addresses conventional injection techniques, pattern inspection and mold set up.

    • Shell Building – Techniques and methodology for investing a mold.

    • Pattern Removal – Techniques highlighting different approaches employed for the removal of pattern materials based on the type and unique characteristics of that material.

    • Preheat and Casting – Conventional Equiaxed Grain, Fine Grain, PolyCrystal, and Single Crystal.

    • Shell Removal, Cut-Off, Grind, and Finishing – Mechanical and chemical methods of shell removal.

    • Post-Cast Metallurgical Processing – High-level review of post-cast metallurgical processes will be addressed (Heat Treatment, Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP), etc.)

    • Inspection – High-Level review of destructive and non-destructive testing methods and techniques (X-Ray, FPI, Eddy Current, Contact, and Non-contact gaging, stress rupture testing, microscopy, etc.)

DAY 2 (July 31, 2019 - 7:30AM to 4:30PM)

  • Designing for Cast-ability – Addresses important considerations that should be taken into account when designing a casting to ensure a greater probability of casting success.

  • Additive Manufacturing

    • Current Applications – Addresses well-established technologies in use today with a focus on stereo lithographic array and printed wax for use in pattern manufacturing.

    • Emerging Technologies – Review of emerging technology, challenges being addressed and long term outlook as it pertains to core and mold production.

    • Future – Addresses the technical and limitations of printed metal hardware.

  • Equipment Overview – Review of foundry equipment addressing wax injection presses, robotic manipulators, dip pots, dry tunnels, conveyors, autoclaves, kilns, casting furnaces, shell removal equipment, cut-off saws, grinding equipment and much more.

  • Q&A – Open discussion on the investment casting process, equipment, and emerging technologies.
