What is casting ? Different type and process of casting
In the mechanical industry casting is a process to develop or build different parts which has various shape and size along with perfect finishing. The products which are built through this process are known as casting products. In the casting process mold is created as per desired shape and pattern in which metal is poured and after the cooling phase it become exact or desired casting parts.
Casting process is a traditional process it has been known from thousands of years, and most popular method to develop small and accurate casting parts. There are mainly three procedures to develop casting parts such as Expendable Mold, Non-Expendable (Permanent) Mold, and Other. In these procedures mainly water & clay mold, Investment casting and die casting are famous sub process.
Investment casting is also known as lost wax casting, it’s one of the oldest metals forming technique. This process is ensure and guaranteed to produce superior and high quality components. In the investment casting foundry excellent and precise casting components are building, sometimes complex or critical design products also manufactured.
In the non-expandable casting mainly non-ferrous metals are used to produce casting parts, set up process of mold is time consuming but after that it produce around 10-50 pieces/hr-mold. These products are high in tensile strength compare to other casting. Generally iron, magnesium, aluminum alloys and nickel alloy casting are used to produce durable components.
Sand casting is one of the easiest and popular types of casting, it allows small groups to produce numerous number of casting such as 5-25 pieces/hr-mold. In this type of process most of the metals are applicable as per sand is used.
In the continuous casting production remain continuous with the help of reused and refinement mold. The product which are manufactures are premium in quality and strength, metals like steel, aluminum and copper are generally used to produce huge range of casting parts. This type of huge casting production is offered by Energy Technocast Pvt. Ltd. with an international standard and quality at the lowest price.
Last words, Different casting manufacturer uses various casting technique to produce high quality and durable casting components. Some of the other detailed casting types are available, hope present casting types are useful.
