Neptuno® Foundry is equipped with an extended range of Smelting of Induction Casting INDUCTOTHERM®, with a capacity from 25 kg to 600 kg. Having a total smelting capacity of:
• 7.000 (seven thousand) kg for
Ferrous Elements (Steel and
• 6.500 (kg) (six thousand five
hundred) kg for non-Ferrous
Elements (Bronzes and Aluminum)
Neptuno® has a world-class Foundry, equipped with cutting-edge technology and highly experienced professionals, permitting a great capability and versatility of the products.
Casting Simulation Technology
Neptuno® introduces its new generation of casting simulation software, optimizing its manufacturing processes and guaranteeing its products’ world-class quality.
• MAGMASOFT® - World’s most
advanced casting simulation software
• Predict overall quality of the pouring
• Simulation of mold filling, solidification
• Optimization of casting conditions
• Reduced costs of smelting
Self-hardening Resin Casting
NEPTUNO® Foundry works with furan resin, the only one which allows a 100% of recycling which is made with a 6 ton/hour recovering plant, in this way avoiding massive elimination of dangerous products into the environment.
Cold Box Casting
This type of Smelting guarantees quick confection of high precision cores, permitting a quick response to a large quantity of requests in a short period of time
It has incorporated ceramic models confection and in Lost Wax, permitting to obtain geometrical high precision casts which give melted pieces with a tolerance of ±0.1 (mm) and a Superficial Quality of 125-150 RMS (melted), diminishing mechanizing and secondary operations costs.
Vacuum Induction Melting:
There are two Vacuum Induction Casting Equipments: One with capacities up to 500 (kg) of special steels, such as Hastelloy®*, Inconel® **, Monel® **, copper with low oxygen content and high-reactivity materials. The second with capacities up to 100 (kg) of metal inceramic molds that are introduced directly into the camera.
* Hastelloy is a registered trademark of Haynes
** Inconel and Monel are registered trademarks
of International Nickel Co., Inc.
