About Us

SHANKER FOUNDRY's products make up a small proportion of the overall cost of the foundry process but, when delivered in consultation with the Division's application Engineers, can produce significant economic benefits to customers through improved process capacity, yield and efficiency. The quality and performance of process consumables are of key importance to foundry operators. For example, the presence and correct positioning of a 25¢ filter can have a major impact on the economics of producing a $20 casting. As a result, customers seek quality and reliability from their suppliers of foundry consumables.

The performance, quality and reliability of our's product ranges, together with the input of the Division's technical staff working alongside customers' process engineers, are fundamental to the Division's reputation as a India's leading supplier of foundry consumables. Foseco Foundry's products are in the main single use, as they are either consumed or transformed during contact with the molten metal during casting. In a typical foundry process the our products may be used in the melting shop, core shop, moulding line and pouring.

Using our;s chemical binders and refractory 'paints', the customer foundries prepare the sand moulds and cores, that determines the precision and surface finish of the final casting. As a liquid alloy is transferred from the melting furnace it may be in contact with Foseco molten metal transfer products, such as insulting ladle linings, and is modified as a metal treatment equipment and additives.

A Foseco ceramic filter may be used within the mould to remove impurities and reduce turbulence during pouring, thereby reducing scrap and improving the mechanical properties of the finished casting. Foseco feeding aids are also important in the reduction of material waste and improvement of casting quality: Our exothermic feeding aids may be employed in the mould to provide secondary heat sources that can control cooling, minimising the adverse effects of shrinkage during solidification, helping to optimise the yield and the quality of the finished casting.
