Preheating moulds and dies quickly and homogeneously

Dear Sir or Madam,

A very warm welcome to you with news from the Bright World of Metals and

Jumping into ice-cold water, just like that? That takes a lot of courage and is rather unpleasant. Jumping just like that in extreme heat? Somehow not quite as horrible. But still, it is good to be nice to moulds and dies, which are gently preheated before contact with the melt.

It is clear, tough guys need gentle treatment so that later on they can do their work correctly. And because these tools are used in both gravity casting and casting procedures carried out under pressure, the production process is a sophisticated procedure. With potential for improvements, as you will be able to read in the theme of the month of June: Preheating moulds and dies quickly and homogeneously.

Enjoy reading!

Düsseldorf CityTip

Carl Buchheister – Pioneer of Abstraction.

Carl Buchheister. Pionier der Abstraktion.
Carl Buchheister’s important status as one of the pioneers of abstract art is undisputed. Being a close friend of Kurt Schwitters’, his work has been exhibited internationally since the 1920s. In the period of the National-socialist rule Buchheister was banned from painting and went into internal exile. After the Second World War his work opened up towards a decidedly experimental and versatile pictorial language closely related to Art Informel.
