Standardization for Foundry Machinery, including terminology, classification, specifications, test methods and safety requirements of machinery and equipment for, e.g.:

  • permanent mold casting processes, e.g.: high pressure die casting machines, low pressure die casting machines, gravity die casting machines, centrifugal casting machines,
  • non-permanent mold casting processes, e.g.: molding machines, core making machines, moulding material preparing machines, knockout machines, investing casting machines,
  • cleaning and finishing processes for castings, e.g.: abrasive blasting machines, grinding machines,
  • cupolas and pouring devices and ladles both heated/unheated used in foundries.
