The lost foam technique offers numerous advantages in the production of castings. The book "Lost Foam Inside", published by Lost Foam Council e. V. (LFC), provides users and newcomers with practical experience and in-depth insights into the process.
Whether pedelecs, e-scooters or drones - all these forms of mobility use an electric motor to drive them. In order to make the motors more efficient, researchers at Fraunhofer IFAM have developed a casting process that can be used to produce lightweight windings from aluminum and a higher groove filling factor.
Established companies rarely seek new growth through new services. It is precisely here that traditional companies and start-ups can successfully learn from each other, as examples from the metal industry show convincingly.
The Lost Foam casting process is based on the American full-mold casting process, which has been known since the 1950s. This approach made it possible to produce complex components suitable for mass production in one processing step.
