Mass-Production Process for Thin-Walled Cast Stainless Steel Exhaust Manifolds 2001-01-3362
The Cadic Corporation has established a mass production facility to produce near net shape stainless steel exhaust manifolds using Cadic's patented Convert Mold Process.
The Cadic process converts ordinary mass-produced organic bonded sand molds into high precision ceramic molds by immersing them in a proprietary binder. Once treated the molds are assembled automatically and processed at elevated temperatures in preparation for pouring. The process allows the production of thin wall steel casting to be cast into high temperatures mold in a process to investment casting technology.
