Optimization of wax pattern technology in the company Fimes
Žuja, Jaroslav ; Vašťák, Patrik (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
This thesis is to evaluate currently used wax and compare its properties with of newly purchased one. Further, it is to evaluate whether the quality is reflected by using "boiled wax'', which is being used as a runner wax. All tests were carried out at the Fimes a. s. In the first part of this thesis, there is a brief description of the lost wax method. This is followed by a decription of wax blends from technology point of view. The experimental part describes the operations from the production of wax patterns, through their dimensional inspection, up until dewaxing process. All the results are noted and compared.
Optimized lost wax process by using numerical simulation
Svobodová, Radka ; Horenský, Jiří (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
The aim of this diploma thesis is to ascertain the process of injecting the wax through an injection moulding machine under certain input conditions and with the help of the simulation program Cadmould 3D-F®, to perfect the injection and the following solidification of the wax. Only thanks to a perfect injection and the following solidification of the wax, a precise wax pattern can be made. In order to compare the process of injecting the wax mixture, we are helped by the Cadmould 3D-F® simulation program and the records of the injection taken by a video camera. In this thesis a simulation program used when simulating the injection of plastics was applied, as a means of comparison. In this case the similarity between the rheological characteristics of both wax and plastic was exploited.
Actual trends in manufacturing of non-permanent wax patterns
Kolesár, Roman ; Jedovnický, Jan (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
The thesis describes the actual trends in the production of wax patterns for investment casting process. First an overview of waxes and methods of the testing is provided. Then there is a description of the workflow, from making a die to an injection of wax mixture. The second part of the work is devoted to wax pattern defects, their causes and methods of removal.
Optimation of wax pattern manufacture - wax mixtures and equipment
Kubík, Jiří ; Zemčík, Ladislav (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
A quality wax pattern is a basic presumtion of a quality final casting when using "a lost wax process". Very important is also re-using the waxes through the process of wax recycling and wax reconstitution.
Use of Numerical Simulation to Optimize Wax Patterns Production
Kosour, Vojtěch ; Elbel, Tomáš (referee) ; Nová, Iva (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
Production of wax pattern model by injection machine is a one of the key phases of Investment casting process. The thesis deals with the development of numerical simulation wax blend injection in to metal die. The possibilities of selection simulation software – ProCast and Cadmould are described in the relation to numerical predictions of wax injection. Creating of material database of selected wax blends is described. The prototype simulations of die filling are made. The special testing die are designed a used for created simulations. The measurements of initial conditions are mentioned.
Present state of investment casting technology
Ševčík, Lukáš ; Soukupová, Lucie (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
This bachelor’s thesis describes investment casting process in each phases of manufacturing the final casting i.e. from master die, wax pattern, ceramic shell, dewaxing process, metal pouring up to finishing operations and final casting inspection. This work is focused on the latest trends in these areas.
Optimization of wax and ceramic shell technologies in the company Fimes
Kolesár, Roman ; Vašťák, Patrik (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
The thesis continue thematically in the previous development of the wax mixtures for the company Fimes. The general description of the investment casting process from the production of the die to casting of the wax pattern is handled in the first part. It is followed by the summary of the previously carried out experiments on cracking the shells. The experimental part describes the individual operations from the production of tested wax patterns to casting in the Boilercláv. The newly developed wax mixture is compared to the wax mixture used by the company Fimes. The experiments focus on the possibility of cracking the shells during the casting process and the dimensional stability of wax mixtures.
Manufacture of a prototype component by rapid prototyping method
Křupka, Marek ; Stachovec, Ivo (referee) ; Kosour, Vojtěch (advisor)
This thesis describes the production of a prototype component of the bicycle crank with FDM Rapid Prototyping method. Initially, production methods of this component, using different ways of Rapid Prototyping are summarized. The main part of the thesis focuses on the production process from the initial design to the final wax model, which can be used to manufacture metal components. The conclusion compares the component production using standard technology with the one using Rapid Prototyping.
Optimization of wax pattern technology in the company Alucast
Šmatelka, Jakub ; Cileček, Jarmil (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
This diploma thesis deals with the problem of wax patterns manufacturing in investment casting technology (lost wax process). This technology is very sensitive to the exact execution in each phase of the whole process, from concept design up to the final casting expedition. During most operations, dimensional changes occur, which is affecting the accuracy of the final casting. No matter how big these changes are, but especially if they occur with the least variance. One of the first phases in this technology is making wax patterns. There are several ways of making the wax patterns and this thesis is describing two different methods used in the Alucast foundry. One is based on using “soft waxes” enabling using low pressure machines, the other one on the “hard waxes” where the injection machine with higher presses is being used (SOM). These two above mentioned technologies are compared in this work.
Design of gating systems for wax patterns manufacture by numerical simulation
Vaščák, Tomáš ; Kolda, Vlastimil (referee) ; Horáček, Milan (advisor)
Diploma thesis deals with problem of designing the gating systems for wax patterns manufacture by numerical simulation. It was created an optimum numerical simulation of wax blend injection, optimized for a simple test model and then applied to more complex pieces. Based on knowledge of plastic injection and the simulation was designed several gating systems for mass-produced pieces. These findings were subsequently applied in the design of gating systems to produce large and thin wax patterns. By comparing the various proposals were finally selected the best solution in order to verify the optimum numerical simulation in practise.
