||The relationship between
variation in eutectic temperature and melt quality
in cast iron
This paper discusses our techniques for predicting melted
material quality efficiently and accurately before pouring
it to a die, using thermal analysis equipment (CE meter)
consisting of three cups. It also academically clarifies
the behavior of alloying elements including carbon, silicon,
manganese, and copper. Our efforts to apply basic research
results to practical application on site was highly valued
in the world.
