Surface cleaning system
The most economical, best and safest technical solution is when one function-integrated component is made from several individual parts. This bell used to be made of 4 individual parts, a base plate, a milled part (arm), a tube and a turned part (connecting eye). As a development partner, FEINGUSS BLANK was able to optimise this complex production to just one investment casting. In view of the reduction from 4 components to 1 one component, a significant material and cost saving was able to be realised.
The embedded arm posed a challenge in terms of investment casting, especially regarding feasibility. Due to the small wall thicknesses, care had to be taken that the hot metal completely fills the mould and does not cool down beforehand. FEINGUSS BLANK was able to solve this problem with a special gating technique. Due to the high design freedom of the investment casting process, it provides optimal part variants, among other things for beverage bottling plants, and saves complex joining and assembly processes.
