DILIGHT Report Summary

Project ID: G5RD-CT-2000-00379
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Germany

New production process

The major output of the DILIGHT project is a new family of high strength ductile cast iron for light weight application, new micro alloyed foundry ferroalloys, prototypes of automobile crankshaft components and power transmission gears, life cycle assessment incorporating environmental issues and mathematical process models developed to predict the properties of new cast irons.

New production processes are envisaged to have a technology to produce the new material under industrial conditions. It should be possible to include this technology in the foundry process and combine it with our other products (return scrap problem and separation).

It is also important to have a sure process for inoculation and MG-treatment with the micro alloys and without annealing.
