Many foundries rely on the preconditioning of their base iron, but even this process lacks traceability and is rarely related to the quality of the poured iron. ITACA Stream XL is designed to automate this process, dosing the material directly inside the ladle.
- Complete automatic or semi-automatic mode;
- Data traceability;
- Possibility of remote control;
- Control of the addition in ladle during tapping;
- Precise control of the addition of FeSiMg and covering material for Sandwich treatment;
- Control of the inoculant addition of at no-bake line.
Thanks to the integration with ITACAX, the pre-inoculation process can be a function of the cast iron nucleation state: the material will be added only when required and with the right amount, in order to guarantee a good and constant metallurgical status. The correction is not calculated only on the basis of the results of ITACAX and the spectrometer, but the core of the simplex will also consider the status and, possibly, the request for modification of the pouring area.
NO BAKE IN-STREAM INOCULATION
Do you have a no-bake pouring line and you are having trouble acting on in-stream inoculation?
ITACA Stream XL is suitable also in this case!
The machine can be equipped with different frames/supports to fit your needs in this special application.
ITACA Stream XL software is designed to receive data related to the castings (like weight, inoculant percentage and pouring time), and automatically calculates the required flow rate. The operator only has to start the cycle when the pouring begins!
