Casting Processes That Fit Your Needs
So how does sand casting work? Sand casting, also called sand mold casting, is a very popular alternative to die-cast and investment casting.
This type of metal casting process is performed when molten metal is poured into a sand-molded cavity.
Sand casting offers many benefits as a low-volume manufacturing option. These benefits include the ability to cast large parts, complex geometries, or parts that need require a core.
Investment casting (also called “lost wax” or “precision” casting) is a manufacturing process in which a wax pattern is created, gated onto a sprue and repeatedly dipped into a liquid ceramic slurry. Once the ceramic material hardens, its internal geometry takes the shape of the casting. The wax is melted out, and molten metal is poured into the cavity where the wax pattern was. The metal solidifies within the ceramic mold, and then the metal casting is broken out.
