Fonderie Saguenay's Pouring of 16,000 lbs Gray Iron Casting
This video shows the pouring of a 16,000 lbs gray iron casting in a no-bake sand mould at Fonderie Saguenay.
To start with, a foreman controls the pouring temperature. At the right temperature, a worker takes a metal sample for metallographic analysis and for obtaining traction results. The pouring process goes on for six minutes and the gas from the mould is ignited to ensure that the combustion is complete.
Finally, the casting is left undisturbed for cooling in the mould for nearly 72 hours.
