Sand casting provides the simplest way to produce non ferrous castings, by pouring molten zinc, aluminium or copper into a sand mould.
Sand casting is commonly used for the production of sum of castings because of low initial tolling costs, and for production of large non-ferrous castings or complex shaped castings requiring detailed cores.
Sand castings can be generated into all aluminium, zinc and copper alloys.
Sand casting is the most economical casting process for small production runs that can also be used in large production areas.
The major benefit of sand casting is the production of complex sand castings though the surface finish and tolerances of the end casting is low in respect to die castings. Production times can also be a lot longer than other casting operations such as gravity die casting and high pressure die casting.
