Sand Castings Process
Sand casting is a traditional but highly skilled casting method used to manufacture shaped parts in a cost effective manner.
Sand casting is so-named due to the use of bonded sand to create a mould into which molten metal is poured. The process is extremely versatile and allows for simple or intricate castings to be produced. Typically, sand moulds are produced using wooden pattern equipment which can be reused for repeat orders, or polystyrene patterns for single use.
Sand casting is a popular selection for pump and valve applications, where internal detailing and passageways can be achieved by adding cores during the moulding process.
