C, disadvantages of investment casting first traces of the Sand Molding was found. Now consider the state-of-the-art Electromagnetic casting process.
Truly, the Casting process has traversed a long path and impacted human civilization for nearly five millennia. With technological advances, metal casting is playing a greater role in our everyday lives and is more essential than it has ever been. Special requirements such as, magnetism, corrosion, stress distribution also influence the choice of the Metal Casting Process. Machine House needs, customer’s exact product requirements, and secondary operations like painting, must be taken care of before selecting the appropriate Metal Casting Process.
Economics of machining versus process costs. Examples are Centrifugal casting, Extrusion, Forging, Full mold casting, Investment casting, Permanent or Gravity Die casting, Plaster mold casting, Sand Casting, Shell Mold casting. The method to be used depends upon the nature of the products to be cast. Examples are Squeeze casting, Pressure die casting, Gravity die casting, Burnishing, Coining, Cold forging, Hubbing, Impact Extrusion, Peening, Sizing, Thread rolling. Possible to cast very large parts. Enviornmental Issues In depth analysis of industry process, recycling, and environmental issues of the cast metals industry.
