Training Courses

Introduction to Casting Casting Design Methods Engineering
This one day course provides fundamental knowledge of the principles of casting and provides an overview of most casting processes available from basic sand casting, investment casting and die casting to the ‘Patternless’® process and ‘Replicast’®. It is designed to have a wide appeal, and caters for everyone wishing to understand the casting processes.

This one day course sets off to provide individuals with knowledge of casting design. It covers the solidification theory and the principles of good casting design, illustrated with real life case studies and provides hints and tips regarding common pitfalls and how to avoid them. It then looks at Design for Manufacture and focuses on improving quality by analysing current practices and provides guidance in the quality standards.
The final session deals with identifying casting defects.

This follows on from the ‘Casting Design’ course and provides 4 days of essential knowledge and practical assignments for practicing ‘Methoding’ engineers or ‘Design’ engineers. Topics covered include; Feeding theory, Modulus, Methoding software, Weight estimation, Fluid Dynamics, Gating theory and Chills & Padding.
This course includes practical exercises designed to provide a greater understanding of the relevant underlying theory.
