Metal casting is a manufacturing process whereby molten metal is poured into a custom mold and allowed to harden to form a part/prototype. The metal part/prototype can be finished through additional machining processes to get the desired tolerances and finishes.
This manufacturing process offers unique advantages that include:
At Cast Technologies, we are committed to meeting all your product development needs, and to do this, we provide you with a full range of sand metal casting solutions. Sand casting dates back to 1000 BC and is one of the oldest metal casting techniques. In this process, we use expandable sand molds to create metal parts in a process that involves the following steps:
We primarily use three metals as sand casting materials:
We have the capacity and expertise to pour over 30 different brass and bronze alloys. This enables us to take on your project regardless of how complex it might be!
Green sand casting is a metal casting process that uses a specially designed mold made of sand, clay, water, and other additives. All these materials are packed around a pattern to create a mold cavity where molten metal will be poured before being broken apart to leave behind the solidified metal part.
While green sand casting is an ancient technology, it remains a viable manufacturing process for the right projects as it is:
For no-bake and air-set casting, we use chemically bonded sand molds. In no-bake casting, we use sand mixed with a resin and catalyst, while in air set casting, we use a binder that hardens the sand when exposed to air. Once these molds have been created, they are used to cast molten metal to create the desired part.
