Sand Testing Equipment

The Simpson Analytics product line is the combination of the former Gerosa brand technology Simpson acquired from the Ing. Ricardo Gerosa Srl company in Rosario, Argentina in 1999 and the former Georg Fischer (+GF+) brand technology Simpson acquired from DISA Industrie AG of Schaffhausen, Switzerland in 2008. In 2015 the best of both of these product lines has been combined to form Simpson Analytics – the largest, most advanced range of foundry sand laboratory instrumentation in the world. More foundries, foundry suppliers and research centers around the world use Simpson Analytics sand testing instrumentation than any other brand. Simpson Analytics features advanced technologies for testing the characteristics of raw materials, bentonite bonded sand, chemically bonded sand, core sand and shell/croning sands.

In modern, high-production foundries, casting defects and process inefficiencies can quickly reduce foundry profitability and competitiveness. To improve quality and efficiency, critical operational and quality control decisions in foundry operations are made every day based on the results of laboratory analysis of foundry processes and materials. To give you better understanding of, and control over your materials and processes, Simpson is committed to the continuous development of sand testing instrumentation. We have incorporated the latest advancements in electronics, sensors and process technology to achieve increased accuracy and repeatability, improved ease of use, lower cost of operation and better test results. A complete product line of more than 70 different instruments is available to test all of the characteristics of prepared sand or raw materials. With better process data, foundries will make better decisions and higher-quality, more profitable castings.
