Sand Casting Process at Aglow Exports Inc.# 00915916451630
Sand casting as a technology has been around for millennia, and is chosen as a most popular technique to produce shaped elements that weight less than a pound, to terribly large parts.The method is versatile and price effective, even for low volume runs because of tooling value. Nearly any part configuration that can be created in another material can be reduced to a pattern and created as a sand casting.
Sand casting is used to form massive elements (typically Iron, Bronze, Brass, Aluminum). molten metal is poured into a mould cavity shaped out of sand (natural or synthetic).
Casting is also known as foundering, is the oldest manufacturing method in which liquid molten metal is poured into a
perforated casting cavity of refractory material. enable liquid metal to solidify, after hardening the casting metal can be taken out by breaking the mould.
Advantages of Sand Casting
Molten metal flows into little ant section within the molten cavity. hence any advanced form can be simply created.
practically any material can be casted.
Ideal technique is by manufacturing little quantities
because of little cooling rate from all directions, the properties of casting are same in all directions.
Any size of casting can be made up to two hundred tons.
Casting is the usually least expensive and most direct method of manufacturing a form with certain desired mechanical properties.
certain metals and alloys such as extremely creep resistant metal-based alloys for gas turbines can not be worked automatically and can be cast solely.
heavy instrumentation like machine leads, ship’s propellor, etc. can be thrown simply within the needed size instead of fabricating them by joining many little pieces. Casting is best suited to composite parts requiring completely different properties in numerous direction. These are created by incorporating desirable inserts in a casting. as an example, aluminium conductors into slots in iron armature for electrical motors, wear resistant skins onto shock resistant elements.
