VT702SN - Mobile Device
For the production, analysis and documentation of "density index" samples

The IDECO VAC-Test & Density Index device is a system for simple determination of the pore potential of liquid aluminium alloys. In order to determine the actual pore potential, a sample is taken from the melt to be tested using a sampling ladle. After casting in two special sample crucibles, one sample solidifies at atmospheric pressure and one at 80 mbar absolute pressure.

Once the samples have cooled down, the density index is determined on the Density Index Analysis System according to Archimedes' principle. The density index represents the percentage density difference of the two samples created.

The measurement results are automatically read in and stored in a local database together with an individual sample identification via the integrated PC system; at the same time, the system also satisfies requirements for Foundry 4.0.

  • Quick and easy determination of the melt quality by the caster
  • The sample crucibles are reusable.
  • Fan cooling of the sample crucibles to room temperature guarantees consistent testing success
  • Infinitely variable working vacuum for precise vacuum setting.
  • The vacuum and weighing technology is calibrated by IDECO as standard with a certificate and seal.
  • Designed as a mobile device for flexible use in production operations.
  • Optional vacuum monitoring is possible
  • The device is network-compatible as standard and therefore offers every possibility for integration into the in-house QA system and for further processing of the data (e.g. with the IDECO "QS-Master" office software) to facilitate evaluation of the measurements in even greater detail.

  • Tabular overview of the current measurements with sample identification and measurement result.
  • User-related identification of each measurement (e.g. "article", "customer", "batch", "furnace", "alloy", etc.) with plausibility check
  • Self-configurable selection or validation lists can simplify sample identification and avoid input errors.
  • Automatic measured value identification for frequently recurring entries, e.g. for follow-up measurements
  • Automatic transfer of the measurement results from the density index analysis system
  • Search and filter function for all stored measurements
  • Measurements can be subsequently supplemented with a comment
  • Printout of measurements (in tabular form) on a local or network printer (if available)
  • Customised software adaptations are of course possible
  • Secured system ("kiosk mode"). No access to the operating system for the operator
  • Manual backup of measurements on USB data carrier

Further individual functionalities are possible when connected to a network, e.g.:

  • Import of master data to facilitate or secure identification input
  • Import of alloy-related or article-related min./max. target values for results evaluation
  • Automatic transfer of additional data from other devices (e.g. spectral analysis)
  • Automatic export of measurement results to a CSV file
  • Automatic data backup to a network folder
