Tech/Engineering - Metallurgy / Casting
English term or phrase: aluminum casting, billet casting, chill casting
These three terms appear in a manual for an 'Automated Billet Mold Air Gas Control Unit'. (...regelungsanlage??)

This gas control unit receives casting gas (what's that?) from an air dryer system.

Any ideas. Thanks a lot.

Explanation:
Casting= "Guss"; billet = "Bramme" or "Knüppel" of raw iron (Roheisen); "chill" = a casting method (Hartguss); the gas may be used for pressure (Hochdruckguss)

Automatische Barrenguss-Luftgas-Regelungsanlage


Explanation:
Aluminiumguss, Barrenguss, Kaltguss. Billet refers to a Barren as in Barren Metall, z. B. Goldbarren. I reckon the casting gas can be regulated and is used to regulate the appropriate temperature of the casting.
Cheerio,
