Launch of new spot feeder concept

The product launch of the new spot feeder concept is a further development of the well-proven compressor spot feeder technology, say Foseco.

The current advantages, such as: minimum footprint area, smallest contact area and optimum moulding sand compaction beneath, were adopted from the existing FEEDEX K concept. From the first idea to the serial stage, extensive tests were carried out. Prior to casting tests, solidification simulations were conducted for verification purposes.

Within the new concept, a large part of the compressor core is heated by the highly exothermic feeder sleeve material.

  • This significantly reduces the contact area of the compressor plate to the greensand by 50 per cent compared to the FEEDEX VSK feeder. The result is an improved feed performance.
  • FEEDEX K VAK feeders are used where smallest footprints and minimum contact areas are required.
  • The application is as simple as with the VSK product line. The self-centring geometry eases the application of the feeder sleeve onto the fixed pin. Furthermore, the feeder residue can be easily knocked-off with little force.

The FEEDEX K VAK feeder series is based on the proven FEEDEX V-feeder product line.
