European Investment Casters’ Federation

Advance Process Control Course

It is well known to the Investment Casting Industry, that the Investment Casting process is a process of processes and, as such, variability becomes an issue, which, in its last manifestation, could lead to increased scrap rate and derived problems. Process Control is the discipline to have this potential variability under control. Because of that different monitoring and control tools are extensively being implemented in the manufacturing processes.

However, the new opportunities and functionalities that the digital transformation brings along create a new scenario in which the possibilities for process control are being enhanced and the type and amount of data to be monitored and analysed are much more abundant. This new scenario claims for a rationalized and integrated revised philosophy of process control.

Aim of the course

The primary objective of this course is to provide participants with the basics of process control plus advanced knowledge and practical skills in leveraging Industry 4.0 technologies for enhanced process control in investment casting manufacturing. The course aims to equip participants with the ability to optimize production, improve product quality, and maximize efficiency in investment casting through the integration and application of cutting-edge technologies and methodologies.

EICF is offering to their members the possibility of an education course that could serve this expressed purpose. This need has been stressed lately by members at the light of the existing difficulties in incorporating new young talent to industry.

Thanks to the invaluable collaboration of the Metallurgy Research Centre – AZTERLAN together with experts from the Industry, the EICF is offering  “Investment Casting Advanced Process Control for Industry 4.0 Course”.
