Technical Services / We offer the latest product and technical innovations for improved metallurgical process control.

We help our customers to: Select the best products Optimise addition rates Invest in proven equipment Embrace new technology Improve skills And achieve success through: Lower fume emissions Reduced scrap Eliminating casting defects Increased casting integrity Improved surface finish Optimising mechanical properties Producing advanced casting grades Embrace new technology / Asmet page 16-17


Consultancy — We share a wealth of experience of all phases of the foundry process. Our service includes:

Process control We can advise on every stage of the casting process including: • Selection of charge materials • Alloy additions • Pre and post inoculation • Grain refinement • Nodularisation • Modification • Metal Filtration • Foundry technology, equipment, automation, measurement, simulation software and control analysis • Quality assurance Casting defect solutions First we diagnose the casting defect before identifying its causes and the appropriate solution. Common defects include: • Shrinkage and porosity • Matrix and mechanical properties • Graphite shape, nodule count and optimal graphitisation • Inclusions, gas and pinhole defects We also offer comprehensive laboratory services through our UKAS approved partner. Remote support Flexible and cost effective, remote access is an efficient and increasingly popular way of working with live foundry data to provide solutions fast and on demand.

/ Asmet page 18-19


Technology — We share a common vision with our technical partners to offer powerful technologies for design, modelling, simulation, measurement and analysis of the casting process.

Our technical partners, Novacast Systems and Saveway provide industry leading technology solutions. Saveway Furnace Lining Monitoring and Measurement Technology • Improves safety by reliable monitoring of refractory condition to prevent molten metal breakouts and furnace damage. • Optimises operating costs by reducing maintenance costs and production losses. • Improves furnace up-time due to risk management of refractory lining. • Targeted melting process improvement by optimising the sinter heat. Casting process simulation system - NovaFlow&Solid CV • Enables development of runner and feeder design before the production of pattern equipment. • Optimises the quality of a casting design. • Uses a new, advanced algorithm for improved simulation speeds and accuracy. Adaptive thermal analysis – ATAS Metstar chemistry and precision • Uses thermal analysis to control and monitor the melt and treatment processes for grey and ductile iron. • Provides real time process data that can be used for statistical process control. • Calculate thermodynamic parameters. • Interprets data and estimates the risk of various casting defects • Can be connected to various types of production equipment and integrated with NovaFlow&SolidCV software. Residual stress casting simulation – NovaStress • An optional module extension of NovaFlow&SolidCV • Calculates the residual stresses during solidification and contraction 3D geometry preparation tool – NovaMethod • Complete 3D CAD functionality • Core creation tools • Gating design assistance • Geometry repair facilities • Works with NovaFlow&Solid CV casting process simulation system • Can be used as a separate system for foundry methoding.


Equipment — We partner with leading manufacturers to offer a range of proven metal treatment equipment that meets the demands of modern casting production:

Cored Wire Feed Machines • Enables controlled metered addition of alloy in wire form. • Improves environmental control and working conditions by reducing air pollution levels. • Can be integrated into automated systems to reduce manpower and improve process control. • Micro alloy additions allow a change of grade or trimming to your base material without making major alterations (changing) to the main bath of metal. • Maximises yields and reduces pour down. ATAS Portable Unit Hire • Portable ATAS® (Adaptive Thermal Analysis System) units are available for foundries to evaluate new products and to improve metallurgical process control. Our service includes: • Day Trials – Asmet’s experienced metallurgists can visit your foundry for the day to conduct product and process trials using our portable ATAS® units. • Extended Foundry Trials – Asmet provides full on site set up of the portable ATAS® system and ongoing technical support. This gives the individual users and foundry management team the opportunity to assess the ATAS® system before committing to a full installation. • Full ATAS® System Installation – For foundries who wish to invest long term, Asmet provide support to install a full ATAS® system, with extra back up and licensing provided by our technical partner, NovaCast Systems. Metal Treatment Feeder Systems Asmet also offer feeder equipment for a range of metal treatments including: • Nodularisation • Inoculation • Deoxidisation • Micro alloying
