What is Casting?

Casting, also called metal casting, is a processing method that melts metal, pours it into a prefabricated mold, condenses, cleans, and ejects the required workpiece or blank.

In a broad sense, it includes low-pressure casting and high-pressure die-casting.

However, due to the increasing application of die-casting in auto parts, the amount of die-casting has increased dramatically. Die-casting gradually broke away and became an independent casting type.

Now we generally talk about casting, which refers to the casting method with little or no pressure and completely relying on gravity.
This includes low-pressure casting, gravity casting, sand casting, and other casting methods.

Common Cast Metals
1. Gray cast iron
2. Ductile iron
3. Malleable cast iron
4. Cast steel

Commonly used for casting non-ferrous metals
1. Brass
2. Tin bronze
3. Aluminum alloy
4. Zinc alloy

Casting Parts with Different Technique

The selection of the casting technique relies on factors including product size, metal material type, production volume, surface texture, density, and precision demands for the final product.

Yontone provides low-pressure casting, gravity casting, sand casting, and die-casting services to customers. We will recommend the most economical and practical production methods for customers based on the number of customer orders, the size of the parts, the final use of the product, and the requirements for air tightness.

low pressure casting machine

Low-pressure casting is a bottom-up casting process. The metal solution is in a sealed crucible, which is connected to the mold inlet through a feed pipe. Then, by injecting pressurized gas into the crucible, the metal liquid enters the mold through the feed pipe, and finally cools and solidifies into the product we need.

Low-pressure casting products have high precision, a fine surface, high internal density, and almost no air holes, easy to be machined. They can be strengthened by heat treatment and have very good sealing properties. They are suitable for various hydraulic systems and automotive parts, engine components such as cylinder heads, cylinder blocks, pistons, and crankshafts, mechanical components such as machine tools, motors, instruments, and meters, etc.

Yontone is a supplier that mainly provides steel, iron and aluminum alloy low-pressure casting products.

sand casting

Sand casting, also known as sand mold casting, is a process of making a model of the product with sand and binder, pouring the molten metal directly into the mold inlet, and obtaining the product after cooling. Sand casting is very cost-effective and has almost no size limitations for products, so many super-large ship parts, aviation parts, and hydraulic structure parts are now completed through sand casting. Sand casting is also very affordable and has almost no minimum order quantity requirements, making it a good friend of small batch orders.

The disadvantages of sand casting are that the surface is rough and the internal porosity may occur due to the lack of pressure in the production process, resulting in poor air tightness after processing. However, it can make very thick products.

Yontone is a factory that mainly provides sand casting products of aluminum, iron, steel, copper, and ductile iron.

gravity casting machine

Gravity casting is a process of pouring molten metal into a permanent metal mold, completely relying on the gravity of the molten metal to fill the entire mold cavity, and obtaining a casting after cooling.

Gravity casting is divided into two types according to equipment: one is pure manual, which is relatively simple and is generally suitable for small and medium-sized products; the other is combined with a gravity casting machine. After the liquid is cast into the mold inlet, the machine will tilt 90 degrees to accelerate the flow speed of the liquid and assist in increasing the gravity. In this way, castings with a more compact internal structure and better performance can be obtained.

Yontone is a company that provides gravity-casting products of aluminum alloy, zinc alloy, and copper alloy to customers. Yontone also provides low-pressure casting, gravity casting, sand casting, and die-casting services to customers.
