Sand casting is a traditional, highly skilled casting method used to manufacture shaped parts in a cost-effective manner. 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. Meighs & Westleys brings a world class plant, procedures, and people together on industry leading scale. Our moulding platforms provide infinite flexibility with machine mould, shell mould, and small, medium, large, very large moulding cells.
Our pouring procedures utilise static pouring or tilted durville pouring stations some of which are designed to utilise full inversion of the mould and tapping directly from the furnace. We provide endless flexibility on batch size with lead times to suit. Our trained methoding team create unique running systems to ensure homogeneity. Moulding envelopes routinely go up to 3700 mm3 / 144”3
