A Process for All Metallurgies

email-img_Lost-FoamVulcan has completed more Lost Foam projects than all other competitors, thanks to our expertise and experience. In addition, Vulcan has been involved, as a partner, with our customers to design complete systems which work for the process, not just as mechanical and electrical devices.

The Lost Foam Casting Process eliminates the need for sand binders and cores. The sand is unbonded and a foam pattern is used to form the shape of the casting. The foam pattern is “invested” into the sand at the Fill & Compact process station allowing the sand into all voids and supporting the foam patterns external form. The sand is introduced into the flask containing the casting cluster and compacted to ensure all voids and shapes are supported.

Vulcan Engineering Co. is recognized as the World Leader in lost foam technology. We provide a comprehensive line of lost foam equipment, including flask pouring, flask handling and flask compaction. Our line of foam bead processing equipment is recognized world wide as the industry standard. Below are some of the items we design and manufacture for the lost foam process.
