Production Materials are Critical in Prototyping

Production Materials are Critical in Prototyping

When it comes to prototyping, the materials you use in production are vital. Consider this. According to Gerald Berberian with Machine Design: “At a Glance: Prototypes are designed to test fit, form and function. 3D printing offers an efficient way to create functional prototypes. There are advantages to using prototypes created with production materials. Why […]

Looking to know more about Sand Casting? Consider this. According to Thomas Net: “For millennia, sand casting has offered an indispensable way to create large volumes of similar products around the world. Manufacturing and engineering companies value sand casting for its ability to produce highly complex casts that work with many different metal alloys for […]

Metal Casting

Metal Casting

What is Metal Casting? Metal casting is defined as the process in which molten metal is poured into a mold that contains a hollow cavity of a desired geometrical shape and allowed to cool down to form a solidified part. The term ‘casting’ is also used to describe the part made by the casting process which […]

Commercial Foundry

Commercial Foundry

A Foundry deals with casting techniques, a process where the melted liquids are poured into moulds. This forms the first step towards manufacturing a product. Foundry Industry plays a vital role in the industrial development. Started as early as 3600 BC, the foundry industry has flourished very well and is likely to grow further. Castings […]

Sand casting is the most widely used metal casting process in manufacturing. Almost all casting metals can be sand cast. Sand castings can range in size from very small to extremely large. Some examples of items manufactured in modern industry by sand casting processes are engine blocks, machine tool bases, cylinder heads, pump housings, and […]

Sand Casting

Sand Casting

What is Sand Casting? Sand casting is the most versatile among the manufacturing methods and gives the Engineers the freedom to design complex parts from unlimited number of metals and alloys. Sand casting is a manufacturing process where the molten metal is poured into the expendable sand mold cavity either by gravity or by force, where […]

Casting Process: Advantages and Limitations

Casting Process: Advantages and Limitations

Casting is also known as foundering, is the oldest manufacturing process in which liquid molten metal is poured into a perforated casting cavity of refractory material. Allow liquid metal to solidify, after solidification the casting metal can be taken out by breaking the mold. The casting process is used to produce components such as pistons, mill […]
