Aluminum Molding Processes
Green Sand moulding is ideal for producing castings of any complexity in quantities ranging from one piece, to tens of thousands. Alcast Technologies offers a wide variety of flexible Sand Moulding Processes and Techniques to service all of your Aluminum Casting needs.
Automated Flaskless Moulding
Alcast Technologies uses only the best automated moulding technologies available to produce the highest quality green sand moulds achievable.
FBO II Features:
Two Rota-Lift moulding machines are in use at Alcast Technologies producing castings from 10lbs through 100lbs. This manual process can accommodate flask sizes ranging from 16”x20” through to 32”x60” on our unique oversized model.
This process is ideal for producing castings outside the typical automated moulding size range. Rota-Lift moulding’s flexible process design gives our skilled staff complete control throughout the operation and allows us to produce a consistent casting quality in nearly any shape or size, economically and efficiently.
Squeezer moulding is a manual process ideal for producing extremely low volumes of castings, loose pattern work, samples, and in some rare situations, castings too complex to make with an automated process. Typically, castings made with this process are limited to 10lbs or less.
Air Set Moulding
Air set moulding uses a chemically bonded sand to produce large, low volume and highly elaborate or detailed moulds. Alcast can accommodate flask sizes ranging from 20”x36” to 66”x72” and is equipped to handle loose patterns, matchplates and cope and drag tooling configurations. Castings weighing up to 400lbs can be made using this process.
