Opting for a sand casting process over permanent mold, diecasting, or investment casting is step one in sourcing a casting. But sand casting encompasses several methods, each of which carries its own advantages and disadvantages. The two most common processes used are green sand and nobake molding, and sourcing between the two is not always cut and dry.
Forty-two percent of North American metalcasters employ the green sand molding process. Its popularity stems from its affordability, ability to be used for most metals and flexibility for low to high volume production.
Green sand molding does not hold the tightest tolerances or achieve the finest surface finish of all the casting processes; however, in general, it meets most of the qualifications desired to produce a high quality casting with a good finish.
Nobake sand casting, which is utilized by 40% of North American metalcasters, also is known for its versatility. Virtually all metals can be cast via nobake molding, a wide range of sizes can be produced, and the rigid mold walls provide good dimensional tolerances and control.Read More

EJ —a global organization that produces and distributes ductile iron castings for municipal and infrastructure programs — staged a groundbreaking event for a greenfield foundry it is building in Elmira, MI, about 20 miles east of its current and original location in Warner Township, in northern Michigan. The $125-million project will result in a new foundry to be operating by the fall of 2018.
Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley and other elected officials, along with numerous members of the Malpass family, descendants of the founders and including current executives and directors of the company, joined in the groundbreaking event in late July.Read More
