Our CHEMICAL Sand Casting Production Process

A multi-step process that produces near-net shape precision casting parts. The process begins with the creation of patterns. These are then used to create moulds that are filled with molten metal to create the part. Secondary processing, such as machining, welding or painting can also be done. The process uses different machines such as furnace, injection, blasting, tumbling, cutting, grinding, etc. The process involves mainly the following steps

1. Pattern Design​

Designing patterns is a complex process that requires very specific know-how

2. Pattern Making​

Patterns made of wood, resin (plastic) or aluminium could be used to produce during the casting

3. Molding Process

Moulds are created with sand that is pressed using the pattern to create the desired shape

4. Melting

Electrical furnaces are used to melt iron from scrap and the necessary alloys or additional components needed to achieve the desired final standard

5. Pouring and solification

Liquid steel is then poured into the moulds and left until it solidifies.

6. Sawing or Cutting

Once the metal has cooled and solidified, the cast part(s) is then removed from the mould via shaking, cutting or friction sawing off the individual cast part

7. Shot Blasting and Secondary Processing

The parts are blasted to fully remove the sand and oxides. The casting part is then fully customized through grinding or additional heat treatments

8. Testing, Packing and Delivery

Then the casting parts will be fully tested for the dimensions, surface, mechanical properties and other required tests before packing and delivery

Want to know more of CHEMICAL Sand Casting

Similar to green sand casting, with the difference that the sand contains chemical additives that make it harder, thus this process offers greater geometric stability of the moulds. Sand is bound together around a pattern, which is designed in the shape of the component to be made – the pattern is removed and molten metal is poured into the cavity. The pattern may be re-used and the sand can generally be recycled. 

 Chemically bonded sand molds are created using a wood, metal, or plastic pattern. Sand is mixed with a binder and hardener in a high-speed mixer. This sand is deposited into a box containing the pattern and all essential gating, risers and chills for pouring. This sand mixture sets hard in a few minutes and the mold is removed from the pattern. Cores for forming internal passages in the castings may be made using the same process. The molds are then closed and are ready for pouring.
