This course provides in-depth knowledge of the manufacture of molds with bentonite bonded sand, so-called green sand.
As a course participant, you will gain in-depth knowledge for two days about how green sand (bentonite-bonded molding sand) should be composed and how the properties of the sand can be controlled to provide high quality molds. The course also goes through the casting defects caused by poor quality of green sand and which health and environmental aspects must be taken into account. An important part of the course addresses how an efficient green sand system can be designed with raw material additions, mixers, molding machines, knockers and sand coolers and how they interact.
Practical exercises are a central part of the course. As a participant, you bring a sand sample from your foundry. In our laboratory, you will learn to determine the content and properties of the sand and thereby make a diagnosis of the sand quality.
The course consists of the following elements:
The course is aimed at those who work with sand preparation, production or production management in foundries where the molds are made in bentonite bonded green sand.
