DRY SAND MOULDING

Green Sand Casting

Dry Sand Moulding : Introduction:      Dry sand casting is a sophisticated form of green sand process, in which the sand mold is baked at a given temperature to make it stronger. This process in mostly used in large foundries to produce big ferrous and non-ferrous castings like engine blocks, construction parts, etc. Dry sand casting ensures precise size and perfect dimensions.      …

Pros & Cons of Sand Casting

Sand-Casting-Mold

What is Sand Casting Sand casting is the most widely used metal casting process accounting for a major percentage of total cast in weight. During sand casting process, material is heated to the correct temperature to melt and sometimes treated to modify the chemical composition to achieve the required material properties. Then the molten metal is poured into a mould which has the…

GREEN SAND CASTING

Green Sand Casting

Green Sand Casting : Introduction :      A commonly used form of sand casting, green sand casting gets its name because wet sand is used in the molding process. A variety of additives like pitch, cellulose and silica flour are used in this process. The aggregate of sand mold consist of mixture like silica, clay, water and other materials are taken for…

Lost Foam Casting

Introduction: Lost foam casting technique (LFC) is known by different generic and propriety names like lost foam, evaporative pattern casting, evaporative foam casting, full mold, etc. Similar to the full mold process, in this process the pattern evaporates when the metal is poured into the mold. Originally, full mold process was referred to as Lost Foam Casting . But, later the…

Green Sand Casting

Introduction: A commonly used form of sand casting, green sand casting gets its name because wet sand is used in the molding process. A variety of additives like pitch, cellulose and silica flour are used in this process. The aggregate of sand mold consist of mixture like silica, clay, water and other materials are taken for bank sands or lake…

No Bake Casting

Introduction: Also known as no bake sand casting, the no bake casting is the most sophisticated casting techniques of the modern times. In this process a strong chemical bond is created in the mold that is made from a mixture of sand, quick-setting resin and catalyst. Air set molding, which is a cold setting process, was developed in response to the increasing demand…

Lost Foam Casting

Lost Foam Casting in Aluminium is very similar to Investment Casting (e.g. as used by Jewellers and Dentists) except the finished casting is the result of evaporating Polystyrene out of the mould rather than melting wax. The process lends itself to complex and sculptural shapes which would be difficult to remove from a mould. By its nature, the process can leave a rough surface (reflecting the surface of a…

Casting

Casting describes the process of pouring a material in liquid form into a mould - e.g. Metal Casting - Sand Casting, Die Casting and Lost Foam or Investment Casting Resin Casting - such as using clear polyester resin to encapsulate objects Plaster Casting - to make 3D copies of animal tracks for example Cast Concrete - used to make components for the construction industry for example Features and Uses It is…

Manufacturing Processes – Green Sand Molding

Green Sand Casting

Green Sand Molding Green sand is by far the most diversified molding method used in current metalcasting operations. The green sand process utilizes a mold made of compressed or compacted moist sand packed around a wood or metal pattern. The term "green" denotes the presence of moisture in the molding sand, and indicates that the mold is not baked or…

“No bake” Sand Castings

Sometimes, we believe that foundries are more or less similar. Reality demonstrates precisely the opposite. Dozens are the technical “distinctions” that allow differentiating a casting plant from another. precisely in the ambit of these differences, either small or big at first sight, we should research those technological advantages able to transform a process into efficient and up-to-date. In our opinion, just from…
