This document is a report on the work completed in the Foundry process team, between the months of February and June 2016-2017, at the École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tarbes (ENIT), as part of the European Project Semester (EPS). Five students from different countries have been working together in a team on a technical project, managing it with several management tools which you will find out during this report. These objectives have been achieved with the help of several supervisors. This team had the task of coming up with two handbooks for ENIT students, the first one explains different foundry processes, which are sand casting, lost wax and die casting. Finally, the second describes tensile tests and metallurgical tests. To achieve this goal, studies had carried out by the team to gain the necessary knowledge to understand the different process, discuss how to teach them and develop designs about the different parts we have been casting. Once the team had enough information about the diverse processes, we started using our skills as designers and engineers to develop the designs, evaluating the pros and cons of each design and find out which one is more interesting for every casting method. Once this design was approved by the technical supervisors, was transferred into a CAD design with the software CATIA V5 for creating the different molds and after casting in the laboratory, we had all the knowledge for writing the handbooks for the ENIT students.
