Automated Shell Room

Franklin Bronze Precision Components supervisory computer and robotic dipping systems create the foundation for a repeatable process. Installed by Shell-O-Matic, Inc., this computer-driven shelling system has increased capacity while also improving the uniformity of shells.

The supervisory computer system tracks casting throughput while ABB robotics drives the production process. This automation results in increased investment casting part accuracy, quality, and repeatability.

The shell dipping area is also equipped with three hand dipping slurry baths, three hand dipping fluidized sand beds, and automated drying racks. Hand dipping is offered for certain products that require this process due to part size/dimension.

Wax Injection

Wax patterns are produced by injecting the paste wax under pressure into the tool cavity via a wax injection press, which has hydraulic platens that hold the parted tool closed during the injection cycle.

For short runs, Franklin Bronze utilizes tools that are simple, hand operated, and single cavity. These tools require operator assembly prior to each cycle and manually placing the tool into the injection press.

For higher volume and larger size parts, automation is added to the tooling and the wax patterns are made with little or no manual steps. This process also requires injection presses that are designed to function automatically.
