ITACA OptiDose™ Automatic FerroAlloy dosing system is designed for automatic corrections of the base iron. It dispenses corrections without operator involvement with high precision and speed.

ITACA OptiDose™ can be integrated with ITACA MeltDeck™ and ITACAX™. Optimal correction for the process is then calculated based on thermal analysis & chemical analysis. The FerroAlloys for the correction (FeSi, FeMn, Graphite etc.) are prepared and dispensed by ITACA OptiDose™ FerroAlloy dosing system by the click on a button.
The precise correction will adjust the thermal analysis and chemical composition to reach the process window for the castings.
The correction process can be automated or supervised by an operator.

The ITACA OptiDose™ configuration is a function of the specific condition of the foundry.

ITACA OptiDose™ FerroAlloy dosing system is customized to the conditions of the foundry. Cycle time, number of materials to be dosed, capacity of hoppers, size requirements are taken into considerations by our engineer for each system.

ITACA OptiDose™ is designed to be integrated with ITACA MeltDeck™ and ITACAX™ but can also be operated independently from a control screen. FerroAlloys can be dispensed directly to a ladle, or into a conventional vessel for corrections in the furnace.

With the Feedback loop possible with ITACAX™ the pouring unit can "request" iron with a specific composition to meet the process target and to minimize variations.
