EC-407 - Mechanical Maintenance: Mechanics

A two-day program dedicated to developing a practical level of understanding of how the die casting machine works, how to evaluate the condition of the machine, how to identify defects and how to make repairs.

Workshop Summary:

The die casting machine is a marvel of engineering, design and complexity and can provide years of dependable service, provided it is effectively maintained. When a machine is not in good condition, the casting process is affected. The life of the machine is reduced along with die life, which has a direct effect on productivity and quality of products. Meeting customer needs is directly correlated to machine maintenance.

This program addresses the mechanics of the die casting machine, from the foundation it sits on, to its maze of linkages, to the die itself. The focus is on the practical requirements of machine repair and preventative maintenance. The course emphasizes the mechanics and assembly of the die casting machine.
