Sand Castings

Sand casting can be supplied when customers are not yet confident of the design of their components. or when the volume of castings over its life does not justify the cost of iron and steel dies..As a general rule the patterns that are required to manufacture sandcastings are much cheaper than steel and iron dies but the unit cost of the sandcasting is significantley higher than its equivilent casting using the gravity or low pressure casting process. Quality and repeatibility are also more varied using the sandcasting process and can cause surface finish and machining repeatability problems if not controlled with great care. Sandcastings do,however, allow the manufacture of components to enable small production batches to be used to identify possible problems or to test market the product before committing to expensive tooling. We supply many machined, painted and assembled aluminium sand castings to our existing customers with superb results
