Of all forming manufacturing processes the casting process is the most versatile with regard to freedom of design.

When lost moulds are used in the process, a clay-bonded moulding material is used in most cases.

Clay-bonded moulding material is recirculated in the process and requires a reconditioning technology by which the moulding material is cooled-down and moisturised after shake-out and the used-up constituents are replaced in a manner that a moulding material of high homogeneity for the production of new moulds is obtained.

Sensor Control is providing in this field various systems which, based on decades of experience, cover all stages of the reconditioning of clay-bonded moulding materials from shake-out to the moulding machine and which, due to the modular design, can be integrated into any type of sand preparation plant regardless of the mechanical set-up.

Bulk Material

By bulk material a free-flowing mixture of constituents is meant.

It is frequently transported either by conveyor belts or pneumatically through hoses or piping.

Monitoring and control of quality and quantity is important.

Sensor Control is providing in this field sensors and systems for ensuring quality by means of sensors for measuring material moisture, material temperature, air humidity and air temperature and for monitoring and controlling quantities by means of modern weighing and dosing technology and filling level sensors.

Laboratory Equipment


Essential for an optimum drying and firing process is a constant and reproducible clay plasticity. The Novatronic C preparation and plastic shaping regulating system is the optimal solution for this task on preparation and plastic shaping machines with regard to adaptability, user-friendliness, and performance. Fluctations in the plasticity and the mixing water content influence the quality of the drying results as well as the energy expenditure and therefore financial expenditure in product drying.
