Part of the Fundamental Manufacturing Processes Video Series, this program includes information on pattern and core production methods, and covers an array of casting processes, arranging them into three major categories:
- Expendable Mold/Reusable Pattern processes
- Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern processes
- Permanent Mold/No Pattern processes
The Expendable Mold/Reusable Pattern processes section includes an examination of the most common casting process - Sand-Mold Casting, and its variations.
The Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern processes section has demonstrations of Investment Casting and Evaporative-Foam Casting.
The Permanent Mold/No Pattern processes section examines the more precise casting techniques, such as Permanent-Mold Casting, Die Casting, and Centrifugal Casting.
