Foundry in simple terms is a process involving casting of molten metal into castings. This process is done by melting and pouring metal it into molds and allowing it to solidify. Casting products like machine bodies, engines parts, gears and valves etc. are produced using various castings methods like die-casting, investment casting and sand castings.
Modern foundry machines are highly advanced and mechanized. The metal is melted in furnaces of all sizes, from a few kgs to many tonnes, and then it is poured in molds in which they cool and take shape of the molds. Finishing is done later to make sure that the casting has the right finish to put the casting to use. Engines, various autmobile parts, and various metal parts are manufactured using casting which is a part of discrete manufacturing. Various parts are casted in molds by melting steel and other metals in order to manufacture these parts.
To manage such rigorous process and monitor all the operations from procurement of metal to production of products across various stages, the company needs a robust ERP software for Castings & Foundry.
