Intelligent coating unit
Poor application control can undermine coating performance and can in some instances lead to excessive scrap or rectification work. Hence Foseco has developed a range of equipment that is designed to optimise coating control at application.

Automated coating control and adjustment
Increasing requirements from foundry applications such as thinner wall sections, complex internal geometries and new alloys, are driving the demand for high-performance coatings. However, high performance coatings need to be applied consistently to achieve best possible results on a repeatable basis. Poor application control can undermine coating performance and can in some instances lead to excessive scrap or rectification work. Hence Foseco has developed a new range of equipment that is designed to optimise coating application.
Density Controlled Coating or the benefits of intelligent automatic coating control
The Foseco Intelligent Coating Unit (ICU) was introduced in 2019 to improve the handling and application of mould/core coatings in ferrous foundries. It thus offers a way for foundries to improve process reliability, as well as casting quality. Further developments of the ICU concept since then have led to the launch of new modular
and integrated solutions that extend its use to a wider range of foundries, and show payback on investment within a year of installation. The very latest innovation is the first handheld density measurement tool, which has been released as a replacement for traditional Baumé and flow cup testing when manual coating control
