Engineering Equipment for Foundries covers the proceedings of the Seminar on Engineering Equipment for Foundries and Advanced Methods of Producing such Equipment, held in Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland on November 28-December 2, 1977. This seminar is organized by the United National Economic Commission for Europe. This book is organized into five parts encompassing 39 chapters. Part I focuses on the economic problems of the foundry industry, particularly in connection with reduction of labor requirements and in calculating foundry production capacity. Part II highlights the problem of environmental pollution created by different branches of metallurgy, while Part III deals with the general problems concerning practices and technological developments in the foundry industry. Part IV describes the technological advances in molding and coremaking processes in foundry. This part also discusses the reduction of waste energy in permanent mold and die-casting foundries. Part V considers the transition to process and production automation of foundry equipment. This book will prove useful to metallurgical engineers, manufacturers, and researchers.
