Loramendi and Aurrenak have successfully overcome a major challenge: manufacturing machinery and tooling for a railway engine block for their customer in China, Kocel.
THE LARGEST CORE BLOWING CENTRE IN THE WORLD
SAND CORE PACKETS FOR RAILWAY ENGINES
MAXIMUM SAND CORE WEIGHT = 2650 kg.
BLOWING TIME: 2 SECONDS
16V240 SAND PACKET WEIGHT = 26,500 kg
"We have helped the customer to improve the PROCESS, going from manual assembly of parts to blowing cores in a single cycle. This Sand Package has required moulding research which, by eliminating labour, improves the QUALITY of the casting. In parallel, PRODUCTIVITY has been optimized, going from one day to assemble the package to just an hour.” ....." "The greatest technological challenge with this project has been to introduce more than 1500 kg of sand - A big bag - inside the core box in two seconds”.

"Our production process was manual and outdated, we had quality issues and very low productivity. Loramendi has helped us find an effective solution to our problem. Our company is ready to meet the challenges of the coming years”.
