AGC Ceramics has succeeded in developed
Brightorb™, a Ceramics Molding Agent composed of the company's proprietary
synthetic sand, drawing on its ceramics expertise and ceramics melting
technologies built up experience.
Brightorb™ has exceptionally high
dimensional accuracy and molding strength even in casting molten metal at
over 1600 °C. This facilitates precise casting with
high-temperature molten metals such as stainless and cast steels, making
Brightorb™ ideal for a wide range of industrial applications.
Brightorb™ also contributes to reducing waste
since it uses recyclable synthetics and as its basic ingredient.
In addition, Brightorb™ makes it
possible to achieve substantial reductions in completion time and manufacturing
cost by taking advantage of 3-D printing, whose use has been rapidly spreading
in the mold manufacturing industry in recent years.
