At New England Foundry Technologies, we strive to work with principles whose equipment will stand the test of time, and provide an upgrade path to keep your business competitive. We strive to have the best mix of traditional and cutting edge technology to cover the whole foundry operation. Providing solutions for sand casting, investment casting, and permanent mold metal casters – Ferrous and Non-ferrous
"Robotics can help solve problems in safety, staffing, process consistency, and capacity constraints. Drastically reduce or eliminate injuries in cutoff, grind or other operations with repetitive motion. Flexible programming can spread the value of a robotic work cell across a wide range of parts, maximizing ROI. Work cells can also integrate multiple tasks into one station, freeing up valuable floor space for other work."
3D Printing provides a range of solutions for foundries and other manufacturers. From direct metal part fabrication, precision sand molds and cores made without tooling, to printed plastic patterns and fixtures, 3D printers enable a world of new possibilities on the shop floor.
3D SCANNING AND REVERSE ENGINEERING
The ultimate in data compression, 3D scanning can archive a 100,000 sq ft warehouse of tooling into a USB thumb drive. Digitize a system, and you can have virtual tooling faster than the old tools can be shipped to you. 3D scanners can also be used for "scan-to-CAD inspection" which can be used to verify pattern, mold, or casting compliance.
Improving yields and reducing operating costs by using simulation tools is just the beginning. Simulation tools help bridge a massive generational skill gap, and can solve the "patternmaker dilemma" that is epidemic across American foundries. Solutions for solidification, flow modelling, defect prediction, and other applications. Frequently simulation packages pay for themselves in the very first project where they are implemented.
CONSULTING & ENGINEERING SERVICES
We can provide insights and solutions based on decades of experience across a number of industries. From startup coaching, to rebranding an existing business. Full foundry re-engineering, deep market studies, and technology road mapping – we can help you get the information you need to make the best decisions possible.
