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.
