Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Metal Casting and Fabrication

What is metal casting?

Metal casting is a manufacturing process where molten metal is poured into a mold cavity and allowed to solidify, resulting in the creation of metal parts.

Can metal casting processes be used for parts made of different metals and alloys?

Yes, metal casting processes can be adapted to create parts from various metals and alloys to meet specific requirements.

What types of metals are commonly used in metal casting?

Metal casting can involve various metals, including bronze, copper, stainless steel, iron, aluminum, precious metals, and other nonferrous metals.

What is the role of an Electric Arc Furnace or EAF in the casting process?

An arc furnace is used to melt the metal alloy into a liquid state before it is poured into the sand mold cavity during the casting process.

What is the sand casting?

Sand casting is a process where molten metal is poured into a sand mold to create metal parts. It’s a widely used casting method in manufacturing.

Are sand molds reusable in the sand casting process?

Sand molds are typically expendable, meaning they are used once for casting and then replaced. The sand is usually recycled.

What is permanent mold casting, and how does it differ from other casting methods?

Permanent mold casting uses reusable molds made of materials like steel or graphite, unlike expendable molds used in sand casting.

How does the gravity casting process work?

Gravity casting relies on gravity to fill the mold cavity with molten metal. It’s commonly used for producing parts with minimal turbulence.

What is die casting, and when is it a preferred casting method?

Die casting is a process where molten metal is injected into a mold under high pressure. It’s often used for high-volume production of small to medium-sized parts.

How does centrifugal casting differ from other casting methods?

Centrifugal casting involves rotating the mold to distribute molten metal evenly, resulting in parts with improved density and strength.

What are the key differences between lost foam casting and other casting methods?

Lost foam casting uses foam patterns that vaporize during the casting process, resulting in a mold cavity. It offers design flexibility and can produce complex parts.

What are the advantages of using 3D printing in the casting process?

3D printing can be used to create intricate patterns and molds, reducing lead times and allowing for more complex designs.
