Compared with its output, the casting industry uses a disproportionate amount of energy as a result of the inefficient processes used. This talk highlights the melting processes that are used in some traditional foundries and identifies the energy burdens associated with them. A comparison is then made with the novel CRIMSON process to demonstrate where energy savings can be made. A test bar sample casting is investigated to demonstrate the advantage of energy saving by using this novel CRIMSON method which will help the foundry industry to reduce energy costs and promote competitiveness in the production of high value casting components.
