Coming on the heels of an estimated 2.7 percent growth in 2017, the industry is looking at its…

Manufacturing: Metal Casting

Introduction Casting is a manufacturing process where a solid is melted, heated to proper temperature (sometimes treated to modify its chemical composition), and is then poured into a cavity or mold, which contains it in the proper shape during solidification. Thus, in a single step, simple or complex shapes can be made from any metal that can be melted. The…

Diferent Parts of Sand Mold- Features

Cope and drag in Sand Mold : Cope and Drag are the two parts of the casting flask. Cope is the upper part and drag is the lower part. Even if the casting process is flaskless , the same terms are used for the upper ans lower parts. Generally the flask is made of wood or metal. It contains molding…

A Complete Guide to Steps Involved in Casting Process

We know that casting is the process of pouring molten metal in a desired shaped cavity and allowing it to solidify. After the solidification we get the desired shaped object. Basic Operation of the casting process First we have to make a pattern Then the we have to melt the metal by applying heat pouring the metal into the mold and…

Sand Casting Process with Diagram

Sand casting: In sand casting which is also known as sand molded casting, an object is produced by sand mold. The process involves pouring of the molten metal in to the mold cavity. The molten metal is then cooled to the room temperature. The metal is solidified. After cooling, the metal object is separated from the mold.  Sand casting process…
