Process: Sand Casting


As the most popular casting method, sand casting is used to create metal components for an extensive range of applications. It uses a mould made from sand with the required mould cavity carved into it through the use of a pattern. The mould cavity is then filled with molten metal which, when cooled, produces a solid component. There are numerous different sand casting methods available, including green sand casting, no-bake, cold box and vacuum moulding, which vary depending on the required design.

    Casting-Sand Casting

    Currently outsourcing approximately £250,000 worth of casting each year, this spinning manufacturer is looking for a subcontract casting supplier who can assist with their bespoke project requirements. Each project requires a different casting in low volumes, although so far this year, 12 castings of this nature have been completed. Rather than finding a new supplier for each project, the buyer is looking to form an ongoing relationship with a supplier who can assist with each of their requirements going forward. The parts indicated in the attached drawings are provided purely for quotation purposes, however, there will be an order of a similar nature placed shortly. This will lead to additional orders going forward, once a relationship has been established.

    A new buyer to Qimtek, specialising in the manufacture of rotary pneumatic actuators, seeks a supplier for the attached aluminium cases and housings.

    This company specialises in the manufacture of conveyor systems. They are currently in need of a supplier who can assist with the casting and secondary machining of the attached flywheel. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, with delivery ideally required by the end of August. This enquiry is to be repeated, although this will be in line with customer demand and the frequency is therefore not yet known. Being a newly-opened branch of the company, the buyer is currently beholden to the parent company's suppliers and would like to expand to have their own vendors in place. This means that the chosen supplier may also have additional work of a similar nature made available to them going forward.

    Casting-Sand Casting

    This manufacturing company, who specialises in the manufacture of pipework products and outsources approximately £500,000 worth of machining each year, is currently in need of a supplier who can cast the attached flywheel and perform the finish machining. The part in question has not been required in a number of years and therefore, there is no longer a supplier in place. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, with delivery required by mid-November. This will be a one-off requirement, although it may lead to additional enquiries of a similar nature for the chosen supplier, once a relationship has been established.

Spending £20,000 a year on subcontract engineering services, this company values excellent communication and high quality from potential suppliers.

    Casting-Sand Casting

    This company requires quotes for 1488 off sets of cast spheres, which will be connected to pipework and used to hold fibre-optic cables on overhead power lines. The client has confirmed that the casting method is not critical and therefore, they are open to exploring the possibility of alternative casting methods. The accuracy of the diameter of where the pipes are attached is extremely important; it must be no larger than Ø 34.7mm when assembled. Good value pricing is also a high priority for this enquiry. The company holds the pattern which will be free-issued to the chosen supplier. Once cast, these spheres are then assembled using 16 off cap head screws. Please confirm within your quote if you are able to assemble these spheres or if you are to provide the cast half-pieces only. This is just one project out of a large quantity that the buyer outsources, meaning there is scope for the chosen supplier to win additional work once a relationship has been cultivated.
