EnginSoft shows essential advantages of sand casting as one of the fastest and most cost-effective casting methods adopted in the production of metal prototypes.
Article excerpt from the April 2018 article on SpotLightMetal.com website edited by Isabell Page.
Sand Casting is an excellent solution for low to medium runs of parts that do not require precise shape repeatability, as well as being the only solution for very large objects which cannot be produced with other mass production casting techniques.
Sand is an excellent low cost cast material because it is refractory and chemically inert. Sand casting is also ideal for the production of very complex components requiring sand cores (cold box or shell sand) for the most intricate details and having internal areas with variations in thickness.
