Aluminum Billet Casting Techniques and Quality Control

Purpose of Education

Aluminum and its alloys find a place of use in almost every area of the industry due to their excellent properties and being a “sustainable material”.

 

The consumption of aluminum profile products is increasing in engineering applications, especially in construction, transportation and automotive. This increase is a driving force both in the design of new alloys and in the development of new manufacturing techniques.

 

However, it is important to know the basic technical information in order to make economic, environment friendly and quality production.

Target of Training 

All participants at the end of this training;

  • Will remember the properties of aluminum process alloys,

  • Will have information about new uses of aluminum profiles,

  • Will be able to see the criteria that are important in choosing raw materials and auxiliary materials for making healthy casting,

  • Will learn the behavior of aluminum and its alloys in melting and solidification process,

  • Will learn the behavior of aluminum and its alloys in melting and solidification process theoretically,

  • Will have an idea about the causes of casting errors,

  • Will have knowledge about quality control tests applied during and after production,

  • Will be able to analyze the process by comprehending the casting process as “whole”. 

Who Should Attend

  • Engineers and technicians working in billet casting production,

  • Engineers and technicians in extrusion plants

  • Company employees who provide raw materials and auxiliary materials to extrusion plants and billet foundries, 

  • Company employees who provide machinery and equipment to extrusion plants and billet foundries,

  • Quality control engineers and technicians
