HiTech Mechanical Designs – Aluminium Casting & Foundry

Sand casting & sand cast molding is a complicated metallurgical process in which molten metal is poured into a mold made out of sand. The unit, now made up of the sand mold filled with the molten metal, is left to cool down to specific temperatures before separating out the cast, leaving the formation of the metal.

The process is complex (as I have shown in the picture below) & must adhere to the physical properties of the metal to make a solid engineering component. The aluminum sand casting mold can then be machined into finer dimensions & supplied to the manufacturing line.
