The book "Lost Foam Inside - For the use of aluminum, cast iron, steel and non-ferrous metals" thus targets not only foundries but also designers and design engineers. The book offers a comprehensive insight into the possibilities of component design, application and entry into Author: Nicole Kareta. Lost-foam casting (LFC) is a type of evaporative-pattern casting process that is similar to investment casting except foam is used for the pattern instead of process takes advantage of the low boiling point of polymer foams to simplify the investment casting process by removing the need to melt the wax out of the mold.

In the lost-foam or expendable pattern casting process, molten aluminum replaces the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) pattern as it enters a sand mould. This chapter begins with the description of processing which includes different stages: bead preparation, steam . The Lost Foam Council e.Y. (LFC) has set itself the goal to support the further development of the lost foam process (LFP) in Europe. In the course of this, the association sees itself explicitly as a link between the This book is divided into topical units, so that a direct entry into a specific topic can be facilitated.   Lost Foam Publication Released, Includes Casting Case Studies. // Modern Casting;May, Vol. 98 Issue 5, p The article announces the release of the publication on the lost foam casting process titled "Lost Foam Casting Made Simple" by the American Foundry Society (AFS) in The book contains new information on the advancements and. Lost foam casting carbonaceous inclusions, which were only revealed on machining. Essential to the advancement of ferrous lost foam (LF) casting was the development of copolymers, such as the patented Foseco Low Carbon Bead, which helps to eliminate these defects and so make the process viable.

Lost Foam Casting Made Simple is a basic overview of the process of making and using foam patterns. It is aimed at assisting casting designers and casting producers as well as introducing new users to lost foam. Many experts in the field of lost foam have contributed in the making of this book. Lost foam casting is a sand casting process that uses an expandable polystyrene (EPS) pattern that embodies the positive shape of the part to be cast. Lost foam casting is especially suitable for fairly complex castings with many internal passages. This article discusses the advantages and the process technique of lost foam casting.

Lost Foam has been successfully applied to alloys of aluminum, gray iron, ductile iron, brass, bronze, and steel. With or without slight variations virtually any alloy can be produced using Lost Foam. Vulcan Engineering has licenses or associations for variations of the basic Lost Foam process such as Replicast CS, Castyral, Polyform, and others.
