MAGMAacademy 2017 C+M (Core + Mold) Workshop

You are invited to attend our C+M (Core + Mold) Workshop. This two-day workshop is hosted by the MAGMAacademy in conjunction with Laempe+Reich Corporation. Tooling supplied by Anderson Global.

This workshop is a hands-on sand core making program. Attendees will be interacting with coremaking equipment and machinery. Machine operation variables, core sand variables and binder variables will be investigated. Additionally, the attendees will gain a better understanding on how factors like: tooling, sand characteristics, shooting, blowing and venting layouts play important parts in the quality of sand cores, and in turn, influence the quality of metal castings.

This workshop will begin with technical discussions surrounding core shooting, core hardening, tool design, vent types, nozzle design, and core cavity layout. Attendees will also see how the use of casting process optimization plays a key role in identifying common defects associated with variability in the process. Additional investigation into the technological advances of chemical binder systems will also take place.

The overall intention of this hands-on workshop is to show attendees the relationships between:
• The theory and principles of chemically bonded coremaking
• The interaction of tooling and coremaking equipment
• The use of the MAGMA C+M optimization tool.

The combination of theory, virtual coremaking, and real time variation with actual core equipment dramatically improves an attendee’s understanding of what really matters in the process of making high quality sand cores. Attendees will be able to apply these concepts to their own core production projects, and in turn, be empowered to create higher quality sand cores.


Price includes materials, lunch on both days & dinner November 7th.
