Plymouth Foundry: Exploring Different Casting Processes in Metal Manufacturing
As mentioned in Engineering Product Design’s article on casting processes, various techniques to create metal parts for industries like consumer, automobile, medical, and aerospace.
Metal Casting Overview Casting is a versatile manufacturing process where molten metal is poured into a mold, solidifying into the desired shape.
Sand Casting In sand casting, molten metal is poured into an expendable sand mold cavity, solidifying to form the desired part.
Investment Casting Investment casting involves coating a wax pattern with refractory material to create a mold, later replaced by molten metal.
Centrifugal Casting Centrifugal casting uses rotational forces to distribute molten metal into cylindrical mold cavities.
Die Casting Die casting forces molten metal into a mold cavity under pressure, resulting in the final metal cast.
