Greensand casting is the most economical method to reproduce items in metal. Just add water and the greensand can be used thousands of times to cast aluminum or other alloys. Class is 2 hours long and covers sand casting. You will be making aluminum castings. Cost is $45 per person, $30 for kids. Tuesdays & Saturdays Noon.   -“U.S. Navy Foundry Manual” reprinted by Lindsay Publications invaluable resource, but not the kind of book you read straight through (ie, boring technical manual). Again, though it is written for sand casting in particular, much of the information is very pertinent to investment casting as well.-“Charcoal Foundry” by Dave Gingery.

Cast Metal in Sand Molds Using Your Own Backyard Foundry! Part 2 of the Sand Casting Manual continues by describing more advanced techniques. Using non-technical terms, Steve Chastain, a mechanical and materials engineer shows you how to cast metal parts for little cost in your own back yard! Sold in over 30 countries, Chastain's popular Small Foundry Series" is good for both the 5/5(1). Sand casting, also known as sand molded casting, is a metal casting process characterized by using sand as the mold material. The term "sand casting" can also refer to an object produced via the sand casting process. Sand castings are produced in specialized factories called 60% of all metal castings are produced via sand casting process.

Sand casting is the most popular casting process employed in industry because of its great geometric freedom capability and for its cost (~2mm to 5mm for small castings and to temperature gradient between the liquid metal of the casting, and the room temperature air. Gating system design: 1. A gating system refers to all passageways. The preparation of molten metal for casting is referred to simply as melting. The molten metal is transferred to the pouring area where the moulds are filled. Cleaning Cleaning involves removal of sand, scale, and excess metal from the casting. Burned-on sand and scale are removed to improved the surface appearance of the casting.

An inexpensive casting method where a sand and clay mixture is used as the vessel in which to pour your molten metal. The sand/clay mixture is often contained in a metal flask or mold in order to be able to compact the material to a dense state for optimal pouring results.

As with all manufactured engineering products, castings can suffer from errors of shape and size. These systematic and random errors are studied. So-called ‘precision’ investment castings are shown to be precise at small sizes, but generally poor at large size.
