Corporate Movie – Resin Coated Sand Manufacturing Plant & Process
The video showcases the technology adapted and manufacturing process end to end in our factory. Since the process is fully automatic and programmed so chances of defect and contamination is zero.
Most of the Indian manufacturers use semi – hot method of mixing and use liquid form of resin which produces low quality resin coated sand, also increasing or decreasing percentage of resin in the product, and often give defects in manufacturing like Gas defects in castings ,Sand fusion, Surface finish, Collapsibility or shake-out at the time of de-coring, strength and many more.
AMM uses different kinds of solid phenolic resins developed by Asahi Organic Chemicals, Japan. Due to the usage of solid phenolic resins and high quality washed silica sand, AMM RCS achieves better flowability, lesser curing time and better strength.
Another major USP of AMM is that it has been successfully developing and customizing resin-coated sand offerings to meet the requirements of its customers.
