In the industrial and manufacturing space, sand casting is also accompanied regularly by aluminum and magnesium casting. This is being done on behalf of the widest array of manufacturers and processors who, in their own turn, have their own specializations. Magnesium and aluminum sand casting, not only specialized, need to be fully certified as well. This is done through the ISO mechanism. This ensures that a company, as an enabler, manufacturer and source supplier, is able to live up to its ability to deliver qualitative surface finishes as a result of the sand casting process.
The list of manufacturing processes associated with the use of aluminum and magnesium are quite extensive. We can only mention a few here. Bear in mind that these processes have all been ISO certified. During the design stages, pattern making is required. The design process also entails a process of molding. When shapes and features have been set on, molding, cope, drag and squeezer lines are cast in stone if you will. Because sand is always required for the manufacturing processes, it helps to have a no-bake sand processing facility on standby.
Core facilities are delineated to hot box and cold box while the job is never quite done until manufactured or treated goods have entered the complete finishing cycle areas. Here too and where required, a liquid penetrant inspection will be carried out. Think of this creatively, and think of this logically. Just where would this last process be applied. Well, in a number of areas where fuel is likely to be used quite extensively. Here, as it turns out, we have merely touched the tip of the iceberg where certified manufacturing processes to do with sand casting requirements are concerned.
