What Is Precision Casting
2016-03-10

The process of making a solid object by pouring molten metal, glass or plastic into a mold and allowing it to cool is known as Precision Casting . In our daily life we come across literally hundreds of items which were crafted and molded, from that aluminum coffee mug to the plates, serving dishes and egg cups in our kitchen cupboards, now even it is even widely used in factories to produce machine components. All are made from different materials but the casting process remains the same.

Casting enables companies to increase the rate of production and uniformity of their objects, increasing productivity and in turn increasing profit. With the help of a mold you can achieve virtually any shape and virtually any size object. When casting was first introduced, iron was the predominant material used, but later on materials like aluminum, bronze, copper, silver and even plastic were used.

Take a quick look around your home and you'll see that you're actually surrounded by cast products. When you look at a dinner set, for example, with six big plates, six small plates, six bowls, knives, forks, spoons and glasses, the only way to achieve uniformity in the set is if a casting process is used. Metal casting is used on everything from a garden gate to decorative pieces, such as frames and vases that brighten up the home. Metal casting is also used to make bathroom taps and flushers, while porcelain casting is often used to make the toilet bowl. The smooth finish of cast pieces is due not only to the mold but also to the skill and labor of the workers who fill the molds.

You'll also find cast pieces in the car and in your office - from the steering wheel to the gears and from the spare parts in the engine to the exhaust, casting is used to make a number of car parts, as well as computers, computer accessories, mobile phones and mobile phone parts.

Metal casting is also used to create products for the army, such as guns, tanks and artilleries. Besides, it's also used to make planes and the composite parts of the plane engines. The medical industry also makes full use of casting, in surgical instruments and in surgical machinery.

Casting molds can be used across literally hundreds of industries, and they can be made for virtually any product. Since casting was developed and introduced, the domestic and industrial infrastructure of our day to day life has been changed forever - without casting and without molds, we wouldn't have the precision cut pieces that we have today and our industries would be vastly different.
