Case studies

Elkem's technical service engineers support you with adressing complex casting issues. We gladly share some examples with you, of issues we regularly encounter at foundries.

Avoiding micro porosity defects in iron castings

In this case, a leading grey and ductile iron foundry experienced some defects. They specialise in producing automotive, agricultural, earthmoving and engineering castings for the global market. Previously they worked with a competitor’s inoculants and nodularisers. They experienced issues with machining their cast products. 

This defect did not only cause high production costs, but also, was a major risk to the foundry’s reputation with their customer.

Curious about the solution? The case study report below provides you the full story.
