How Does Sand Casting Work? – Sand Casting Process

The basic process of Be-cu sand casting process has the following steps:

  • Sand Mixing Stage: Sand casting is inseparable from sand, a special modeling soil. The modeling soil can be reused, but it needs to be sieved with a sieve before use, the loam is finer, and then it needs to be mixed with a suitable amount of clay with a sand mixer.
  • How to make sand casting molds: The mold should be made according to the samples or drawings given by the customer. The quality of the mold directly affects the shape accuracy of the casting! In the past, traditional wooden molds were generally hand-made by woodworkers. Metal molds are engraved by engraving machines. A small engraving machine capable of carving wood and plastic molds can be purchased for a few thousand dollars. If the engraving machine can engrave metal, it will cost tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. The material range, precision and automation of the engraving machine are the main aspects that determine the price!
  • Modeling (Core-Making) Stage:Some castings with inner cavities often need to make cores (used in modeling, commonly known as lower cores). There are many ways to make cores, and there are two common ones. First, the mold is generally made first (often made together with the core mold in the first step of making the mold), and then handmade with sand-mixed modeling soil (a bit like modeling, commonly known as core punching). Second, use an aluminum core box, pour coated sand, and bake it in an oven. The oven can be special for casting or you can make one yourself. Solder one with iron and bake it on the stove, because the core box is very hot. So wear gloves.
  • Melting Stage: The main purpose of this step is to melt the iron into molten iron. The difficulty is the ingredients and the temperature control of the molten iron. Because cupola furnaces have been basically banned, most of them use electric furnaces as smelting equipment, regardless of whether they are large or small. There are large and small electric furnaces, and the price gap is large. The small 200 kilograms are between ten thousand and twenty thousand, and the large ones are even hundreds of thousands of millions. In addition, the electric furnace needs to apply for a special transformer, and the transformer equipment needs to be purchased by yourself. In addition, the use of the transformer needs to be applied to the local power bureau, and the application fee is not the same.
  • Pouring Stage: The molten iron ladle is divided into large and small bags. The molten iron melted by the electric furnace is first poured into the large bag, and then the molten iron in the large bag is transferred to the small bag. The worker holds the small bag and pours the molten iron into the formed mold.
  • Cleaning Stage: After pouring and waiting for the molten metal to solidify, take a hammer to remove the gate and shake off the sand of the casting, and then use a sandblasting machine for sandblasting, so that the surface of the casting will look very clean! For castings that are not strictly required After inspection, it is basically ready to leave the factory.
  • Casting Processing: For some castings with special requirements or some castings that cannot meet the requirements, simple processing may be required. Generally, a grinding wheel or a grinder is used for processing and polishing to remove the burrs and make the castings smoother.
  • Casting Inspection: Casting inspection is usually in the process of cleaning or processing, and the unqualified ones are usually found out. However, some castings have individual requirements and need to be inspected again. For example, some castings require a 5 cm shaft to be inserted into the center hole, so you need to take a 5 cm shaft and try it out.

Aluminum


With a focus on automation of our manufacturing processes and controls, we lead the foundry and machining industry in quality, consistency and on-time delivery of aluminum sand casting and machining.

Gray Iron


Gray Iron Sand Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult or uneconomical to make by other metal-forming processes.China Be-cu offering one-stop Gray Iron casting service.

Steel


Cast carbon steel sand castings refer to the castings produced by sand casting process with material of cast carbon steel. Our services are varied and extensive.From start to finish, we have you covered every step of the way.

Ductile Iron


What truly defines the group of materials that make up Ductile Iron is the structure of its graphite. Unlike the graphite flakes in Gray Iron, the structures of the graphite in Ductile Iron are nodules.Ductile iron castings are strong.

Brass


We still use the sand casting solution in our production because of the large demand of brass lighting parts.According to our customers’ requirements, we can produce large parts/components by sand casting.


The Roughness Comparison Of Sand Casting


This standard is based on the casting surface roughness comparison sample block specified in (GB/T 15056-2017) for the inspection of casting surface roughness plating, as a reference for casting process and casting surface roughness selection.

  • The surface roughness (Ra) of stainless steel sand casting is 25-50
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of stainless steel water glass investment casting is 6.3-12.5
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of stainless steel silica sol investment casting is 3.2-6.3
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of aluminum alloy sand casting is 25-50
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of aluminum alloy silica sol investment casting is 3.2-6.3
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of aluminum alloy die casting is 2.5-3.2
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of copper alloy sand casting is 25-50
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of copper alloy silica sol investment casting is 3.2-6.3
  • The surface roughness (Ra) of steel/aluminum/copper CNC Machining is 0.8-3.2

Sand Casting Applications – What is Sand Casting Used for
