AcronymPRESSURE ROLLING

Proposal titleADVANCED PROCESS FOR THE PRESSURE ROLLING OF MATERIALS IN THE

FOUNDRY INDUSTRY

AbstractUp to now, foundries manufacture cast-components that generally have poor mechanical

properties (state of surface, fatigueresistance, proof strength). The foundry industry must

find now a way to upgrade these mechanical properties of its cast   components by a

process that is fast, easy to set on a production line and not to expensive: The Pressure

Rolling process is the envisaged solution. It will be a new step in the foundry process,

namely a finishing step that does not exist so far.  The main objectives of the project

are:  - To develop a Pressure Rolling procedure. - To study the effect of Pressure Rolling

on cast components manufactured by foundry partners. - To develop a suitable method of

on-line controlling: the surface state of the cast components before and after Pressure  

Rolling and the strain hardening of the component. - To realise a numerical simulation of

the stain-hardened surface of the cast component after Pressure Rolling. - To implement

the process on foundry production lines.
