Innovations Enhance Mold Drying Effectiveness

Conveyors and other concepts help foundries achieve highest mold and core throughput Supporting heavy-duty production Reduced footprint, heating flexibility Core bake/preheat oven

There are many factors involved in boosting productivity in sand casting operations, which typically have hundreds of process details to track and just as many variables to manage. In order to achieve highest throughput, these foundries must increase their rate of mold and core production, which means that the refractory coating — also known as a "mold wash" or "core wash" — on those products should be force-dried using a convection oven. These "sand core dryers," "mold dryers," or "
