Valve Castings Analysis And Improvement Of Common Defects

TOOL FAILURES -CAUSES AND PREVENTION

in tool failure analysis is the metallographic investigation, which determines material properties on the one hand (carbide distribution, cleanliness, grain size) and material defects on the other (porosity, shrinkage holes, excessive segregation, inclusions). Machining defects (grinding or erosion faults) are likewise detected at this stage.
