Sand Casting

Sand Casting

Sand casting is the oldest method of casting, dating back about 2000 years. It is also a very versatile process and can produce castings of extreme complexity, has the lowest setup cost, and is the easiest and most cost-effective to modify. Because of these features, sand casting is ideally suited for making low and medium volume production castings and converting welded parts to castings.
