We also support our customers with services across the entire development and production process and work with them to design solutions that offer real added value. 2

3 Design services For perfect casting results Our design services accompany the entire process from the development of the design concept through validation to the prototype production of the cast part. In addition, our engineers have extensive experience and a clear understanding of all aspects of foundry technology and metallurgy. You convince with the right combination of design, manufacturing and simulation know-how, through cooperation with external companies and service providers as well as extensive industry experience. The simulation service from ASK Chemicals offers comprehensive technical knowledge and understanding, combined with the most modern simulation programs (MAGMA, NovaCast, FLOW-3D and Arena-Flow). Advantages Higher productivity and optimized catalyst consumption Design of the processes also for inorganic processes Optimized design and manufacture of model plates, core boxes and molds Calculation of the optimal feed Fewer casting errors Shorter time-to-market simulation services Through the simulation of casting processes, the foundryman receives relevant information for the design of a Die-cast or sand-cast mold provided. Pouring systems, overflows, vents and feeders can be optimized in this way. A precise representation of the influences and effects of cooling and heating measures as well as the representation of the filling and solidification times enable the avoidance of, for example, voids, veins and other casting defects. From concept to prototype ASK Chemicals accompanies your entire process from concept to prototype production.

10 Metallurgical products More process reliability Metallurgical products from ASK Chemicals are valued worldwide for their good and high quality. The portfolio ranges from inoculants and inoculation wires to Mg treatment wires and master alloys for iron casting. Product overview Melt treatment Melting plant Melt preparation SiC, FeMn, FeSi preconditioning DISPERSIT, Cer-Mischmetall (CerMM), VL (Ce) 2 Mg treatment inoculation Melt cleaning FeSiMg pre-alloy, NiMg pre-alloy INFORM Mg treatment wires Ladle inoculants, cored wires, GERMALLO inoculants, OPTIGRAN, SMW Formling REMMOS, DISPERSIT special applications CerMM, FeS, mold powder, CaC 2 cored wires for Mg treatment and for inoculation Cored wires offer great flexibility with regard to changing initial conditions such as sulfur content, treatment temperature and amount of iron. In this way, relatively constant Mg values ​​can be achieved despite different initial sulfur values ​​and treatment temperatures. And finally, the handling and treatment costs can be reduced. Thanks to targeted suction, the process is also very environmentally friendly. Our INFORM inoculation wires are available with the same components and elements as our molded inoculants or granular inoculants. 10
