About Sand Casting
The molds are usually made from aluminum or composite materials, this guarantees a long service life. However, tools can also be made from wood to reduce the cost price. This is often chosen for small and / or one-time series. The disadvantage of this is that the surface roughness is higher than with an aluminum or composite mold.
The production process is fairly simple, although cores can be used to create more complex shapes. The release angles and the way in which tool sections are constructed must be taken into account. This technique is suitable for both small and large series, ranging from approximately 200 grams to thousands of kilos.
– High production flexibility
– Low numbers are possible
– Large components can be made
