Foundry Solutions Metallurgical Services ( SF ) in 2016
Following our business developments in 2015 with key players of the industry, we are thrilled to diversify our offering in 2016. Again, we can grow our business because the best product and service suppliers trust us. These are win-win business collaborations. We really have at passionate about these developments with leaders in their respective fields :
- New SF casting defect mobile app
We’re very excited to launch phase 1 of our casting defect mobile app this month. We can’t wait to be the first to use it here with some of our clients in Québec. We’ve worked hard to make this happen. The idea came in line with our paper on casting defect analysis presented at the AFS last october. The goal is to make it easier for the quality department at your foundry to collect and use casting defect data in order to implant efficient solutions to eradicate a given defect.
- MeltLab thermal analysis
We’re installing our first MeltLab equipment at a leading iron foundry this month. For 2016, we’ll continue to develop our thermal analysis expertise with the best supplier and best expert of the industry : David Sparkman’s MeltLab. This equipment really brings a good return on investment for aluminum and iron foundries, as well as university researchers. Have you booked your free demo ? We’ll be at some foundries this month in Québec with Mr. Sparkman.
- Versatile sand testing
- CTIF / A3f
This is a very promising development for services to Canadian foundries. SF discussions with A3f /CTIF, the leading and most advanced foundry expertise and formation supplier in Europe will most likely conclude with a great business collaboration in 2016. We are currently investigating the demand from foundries in Québec. In a nutshell, SF would become metallurgists on the field for CTIF/A3f . We would also market their services to foundries, providing an additional option for process improvement.
Guess what ? We have even more business development going on which we’ll reveal to you soon. It’s awesome. 2016 is the year of the monkey according to Chinese zodiac; we believe it’s the year SF , so many thanks to our clients and business partners.
