The goal of the project is the development of fully automated systems for machine casting which will give rise to opportunities for a competitive and sustainable growth of European SMEs involved in casting, as well as for a technology innovation in the European Union as a whole. The particular groups of operations that are to be subjected to automation in accordance with the envisaged project are
(a) the dosage, the transfer and the infusion of melted alloys into press-forms;
(b) the cleaning and smearing of press-forms; and
(c)the unloading of castings machines. The full automation of these operations will create the necessary conditions for a quality control of casting.
