The excursion was based on the manufacturing process of a cast component. Beginning with the production of the molten cast iron in the cupola furnace through model making to the spectacular casting of a component with subsequent post-processing, all stations of the production process were viewed. This allowed the students to gain an insight into the production process and the daily routine of a foundry. Finally, the casting process of the component considered in the case study was presented using a casting process simulation from the real development process, which was a successful conclusion to an interesting excursion.
The PtU and the participating students would like to thank DOERING GmbH for the successful cooperation and the excellent excursion.
