Different Types of Casting Processes Used in Manufacturing
Casting manufacturing is a process in which liquefied material, such as molten metal, is poured into the cavity of a specially designed mold and allowed to harden. After solidification, the workpiece is removed from the mold to undergo various finishing treatments or for use as a final product. Casting methods are typically used to create […]
Die Casting Manufacture
Die casting is a permanent mold manufacturing process that was developed in the early 1900’s. Die casting manufacture is characteristic in that it uses large amounts of pressure to force molten metal through the mold. Since so much pressure is used to ensure the flow of metal through the mold, metal castings with great surface […]
Die Casting vs. Sand Casting – What’s the Difference?
Casting metal is an ancient process that now can be accomplished in a number of ways. It involves pouring molten metal into a mold where, upon cooling, the metal solidifies and conforms to the mold’s shape. Casting allows manufacturers to create complex parts without the need for machining, which can be time-consuming and complicated; however, […]
Casting vs. Forging – What’s the Difference?
Casting is the process of pouring molten metal into a mold or die and allowing it to cool and harden so that it takes the shape of the mold. The process is ideal for mass-production of parts with the reuse of the same mold to create identical products. There are several different types of casting. […]
