Abstract

Foundry work is the process of making a metal casting of an object by pouring molten metal into a mould. The mould is made using a pattern of the article required. In some cases, the mould contains a core that determines the dimensions of any internal cavities. Foundry industry deals with hazardous operations which are resulted as high risk area for past 10 decades. Identifying the risk and controlling the risk within the standards in Occupational health and safety aspect is more difficult in foundry. The purpose of this project is to describe the steps involved and the method of identifying and controlling various health and safety Risks, defining a method to priorities the identified risk and identify the significant ones, related to manufacture and supply of castings and related support activities. We also explain the work under Casting taking as base which has been a large manufacturing method for very long time, hence the foundry industry have a long tradition of how they are working. Many foundries have grown independently and developed their own characteristics. The aim of this thesis is also to evaluate the possibilities of building a specific simulation model which corresponds with the production flow of one foundry, while being generic enough to be able to adapt to other foundries. Possible benefits of production flow simulation in the foundry industry will also be investigated. The conclusions drawn from this study is that there are benefits to gain for the foundry industry from simulation modeling.
