Particle Foam Casting will Revolutionize Your Production Flow
Versevo has recently acquired a Kurts-Ersa Kurtz K813 particle foam machine that allows us to make lost foam molds quickly and accurately. The process is revolutionizing the tooling industry
Casting models are produced using EPS particle foam by hot-gluing several layers together until the foam model is an exact copy of the part to be produced from aluminum. The foam parts are smoothed out and the encompassed in sand casting ladles, ready to receive molten aluminum. The EPS is burned out as the aluminum takes its place. This process produces a high-precision component as required by engine manufacturers.
Let’s talk more about the lost foam process and how it can improve the tooling aspects of your next project!
