Adishiv Forge implements Russell separation solution for screening of copper powders
Established in 1993, Adishiv Forge PVT Ltd, India. is one of the leading manufacturers of high quality components for the automotive industry. It supplies products such as engine bearings, brushes and bimetallic strips. Adishiv Forge has introduced modern powder metallurgy production methods into the manufacture of copper and brass products and exports these to over 55 countries around the world.
Sieving copper powder is an important part of the manufacturing process at the facility in Rajkot. Previously, the company was using a rotary sifter for this part of the process but this technology was inconsistent in achieving the desired product quality. This was due to the fine metal powders sticking to and blocking the mesh screen, resulting in low flow rates and inconsistent product quality and also causing damage to the mesh. As a result, the company looked for a sieving solution to achieve the desired product quality and reduce product loss.
Russell Finex suggested the 30” twin deck Finex Ultima™ with mesh deblinding system as the ultimate solution for their requirements. The company trialled this separator at Russell Finex’s state of the art test facility, resulting in the decision to purchase the unit for their production plant.
The Finex Ultima™ is a versatile, high-performance sieving machine capable of screening a variety of metal powders. Its unique rubber suspension transmits maximum vibration to the sieving area, resulting in high throughput as well as accurate sieving.
