Process: Sand Casting

Overview

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

    This project calls for the casting of pans used in commercial frying machines, on behalf of a manufacturer of beverage mixing equipment. These parts are shot blasted and Teflon coated - please note that all of the drilling and tapping will be completed in-house. Spending £20,000 a year on subcontract engineering services, this company values excellent communication and high quality from potential suppliers. As well as having an immediate order to place, the client has advised that this will be ongoing work for the chosen supplier, with the batch frequency to be discussed at a later stage. Please note, that all tooling will be manufactured in-house. The buyer is very open to suggestions and willing to make design changes within this project.

    Casting-Sand Casting

    This design house has an annual casting spend of approximately £100,000 and is currently looking for possible suppliers who can urgently sand cast the attached aluminium low slung parts, to be used in a small rail system. There is an immediate order to place for the parts in question, which is to be repeated shortly after the initial order at a similar quantity and then again later this year at a much larger volume, making this a great opportunity for suppliers looking to fill immediate and short-term capacity.

    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.

    This client is looking for a new supplier to sand cast and machine the attached industrial fan case from aluminium.

Price, quality and delivery timescales are all equally important, with quotes required for batches of 300 off which is a standard batch size, as well as 1800 off which is the annual quantity. The client is looking for a long-term relationship with the chosen supplier, with repeatable work to be placed over many years in similar quantities.
