NETFrame® product solutions have a fire-resistant mesh fixed in a metal frame. The special shape of the frame ensures that it grips into the moulding sand. In this way, it holds the NETFrame® directly to the surface of the casting.
The refractory mesh creates a predetermined breaking point. This means that the riser neck or gate is weakened in the area of the refractory mesh. At this predetermined breaking point, the caster removes the riser residue quickly and reliably.
“The use of NETFrame® technology enables us to produce demanding and cleaning-intensive components within the regular throughput time without having to separate them from the regular production process. Furthermore, the reject rate is significantly reduced.”
Christian Zoupina, Foundry Manager SLR
Would you like to know how SLR succeeded with NETFrame® in removing the riser residues of a cast hydraulic component in the running production process without having to transfer them to another work station?
