Spraying Strategy

  • There are many different strategies for (spray-) cooling and lubricant application used by process owners in casting industries.
  • The AED Flextool technology offers a wide operational range, which already covers the majority of process setups.
  • For MQS-applications AED has invented “DELTASPEED”- max. performance and precision.
  • DELTASPEED in combination with Flextool nozzles is representing a hybrid technology designed for high performance in cases where MQ-Spraying and spray cooling is desired

Volume of Release Agent „Required“ (MQS Strategy)

  • For 1 m² of die surface and a targeted layer thickness of 1 to 5 μm a volume of ~ 1 to 5 ml of release agent (100% active ingredients) is needed - assuming a high application efficiency.
  • A thin (<<3μm) but smooth and even layer of release agent is necessary!
  • Accurate and consistent dosing is key!

Typical Spraying Volumes for Bigger Dies (Industrial Standard)

  • The diagram is showing typical spraying volumes for different spraying strategies
  • MQS spraying is a significant step towards very small quantities – see ‘point’ 5 ml
