Sand Mold Casting Process
Sand molding begins with a sand and binder mixture that’s packed around the halves of a pattern constructed from wood, metal or plastic. Once the pattern is removed from the sand, all that remains is a cavity of the desired casting. Cores may be installed to form internal passages and the two mold halves are assembled. The specific alloy is then poured into the mold cavity and after solidification, the sand is shaken away from the casting.
