Sand Casting --- Aheadmold

The traditional method of casting metals is in sand molds and has been used for millennia. Simply stated, sand casting consists of (a) placing a pattern having the shape of the desired casting in sand to make an imprint, (b) incorporating a gating system, (c) filling the resulting cavity with molten metal, (d) allowing the metal to cool until it solidifies, (e) breaking away the sand mold, and (f) removing the casting (Fig. 3-2). The production steps for a typical sand-casting operation are shown in Fig. 3-3.
Although the origins of sand casting date to ancient times, it is still the most prevalent form of casting. In the United States alone, about 15 million tons of metal are cast by this method each year.
