Abstract:

An experimental ferrous casting machine of 20 lbs. capacity and adaptable to both rheocasting and conventional casting process has been constructed. It is a bottom-pour furnace in which the melting is done under a slightly positive pressure of inert gas and pouring is accomplished by pressuring the furnace chamber. Several problems were encountered during the operation of the furnace therefore, the machine is now being redesigned and modified. Color illustrations reproduced in black and white.
