Sivyer Steel’s molding capacity supports castings that range from 50 pounds to 24,000 pounds. Our facility offers flasked and flaskless airset molding lines with a variety of continuous mixers. With some mixers producing up to 2,000 pounds per minute, we are able to meet most volume requirements.
Three highly evolved mixers at Sivyer Steel– for large castings, medium castings and one for smaller parts, use state-of-the-art Smart Pump binder technology. The mixers are programmable to specific parts, calculating the exact mixture and placement of chromite, silica, olivine, and zircon sands. These two mixers at Sivyer Steel have increased production by over 100%.
The mixing process is supported by a vibratory compaction system, giving Sivyer Steel the capability to create molds for complex pieces. A new thermal reclamation system combined with a previously installed mechanical reclamation system allows Sivyer Steel to reuse 80% of the sand in our facility, which has reduced disposal costs while improving casting quality and sand expansion characteristics.
