Non-Ferrous Sand Casting

Sand Casting

Albco Foundry produces exceptional nonferrous sand castings using aluminum, brass, bronze and zinc alloys. This process is cost-effective and ideal for parts of all sizes and quantities.

How Does the Process Work?

We’re unique in that our foundry is versatile to accommodate any and all requests. The team will tailor a casting design around your vision that’s persistent, repeatable and most importantly, keeps your costs low.

The technique of sand casting involves taking tempered sand and packing it around a wooden or metal pattern. The pattern is removed from the sand. The specific alloy is then poured into resultant cavities, and the mold is broken in order to remove the casting.
