What is Sand Casting? Sand casting is a metal part manufacturing process that uses sand as the form or mold that shapes the metal castings. In sand casting, the sand is moistened and the pattern is pressed into the sand. The preparation and bonding process of the sand is the most critical step in the process. This technique is usually used for low volume production.

The sand casting pattern is made of wood or metal, such as aluminum. The patterns are generally not destroyed but are made permanent to be reused up to a few thousand times. Sand casting is used when lower quantities are needed and lower quality is acceptable. Manufacturing companies use sand casting to make aluminum parts if the project only needs a few hundred parts.

    The Benefits of Aluminum Castings. Aluminum castings can provide many benefits for manufacturers as well as for end consumers. With the use of aluminum for die casting, the manufacturing process would be faster but the finished parts can be as strong as metal and cheaper too.

    So here are other specific benefits of aluminum die casting that can be enjoyed by industries and end consumers. First, aluminum castings can allow the attainment of complex designs and forms for die cast parts. This means that manufacturers can easily order customized castings that will be suitable for their production needs.

    Aluminum castings allow producers to manufacture parts at an extremely higher and faster rate than other alloy materials.Die casting aluminum can also achieve near net shape so the process of machining can be eliminated to produce finished parts.

    Aluminum castings have the strength of steel but very lightweight. The appearance and aesthetic value of aluminum parts are also superior to other metal alloys. However, aluminum die cast parts are cheaper so end consumers can get high quality metal products at very affordable prices.

    Castings made from aluminum are versatile, corrosion resistant, and can be used for different purposes. These qualities allow manufacturers to produce multiple products using aluminum parts. The finished products also have longer lifetimes thus giving consumers more value for their money.

    Furthermore, manufacturers and consumers can enjoy multiple benefits from aluminum castings. That is why production of aluminum parts through the die casting has become the most favored process of metal casting manufacturers.

    The Aluminum Lighting Parts vs. Steel. Aluminum and steel are metals that have been the best choices for lighting parts. They’re both durable and readily available in the market. However, in this article, you will find out why choosing aluminum is better.

    First of all, it is easier to modify an aluminum product than a steel product. A set of simple tools is enough to cut, sharpen and weld aluminum. Changing a lighting part made of aluminum would take less time and effort than having a lighting part made of steel, which is harder to alter.

    Furthermore, Lighting parts made of steel are also considerably heavier than the ones made of aluminum die casting, adding more weight to the car. This may sound like a good thing, but an extra weight will make steering a bit difficult.

    Also, broken aluminum lighting parts can be sold at a higher price than the ones made from steel.

    An aluminum lighting part needs not to be painted unlike a steel one to prevent it from rusting. It will also not require a re-painting job once the paint smudges off. This will help you cut back on expenses.

    The advantages of aluminum lighting parts over steel listed in this article should help one in deciding what to buy and what not to buy.
