The ebook that shows you how complex shapes are made from sand and metal.
This ebook is so hot, it's literally on fire!
Over the past 20 years, sand casting has become a data-driven science. The modern foundry uses a combination of simulation and alloy computational software, robotics, x-ray and CT scanning, to produce metal shapes with complex geometries.
This ebook outlines the sand cast process and provides insights from Grainger and Worrall's team of engineers and project managers. It provides insights into frequently asked questions and how to avoid common pitfalls when designing and prototyping castings.

What you'll learn
We know you're time is precious, so we've tried to give a high-level overview of the process but add in Grainger and Worrall's casting insights at strategic parts of the process.
Designing a casting
Learn how casting simulation and virtual tooling design can help the DFM/DFP process. Understand the impact of material (sand/Alloy) choice on cast part properties.
Making a casting
Get an understanding of the casting process and key insights on what can be done to tailor a casting to fit your design requirements.
Testing a casting
Find out how a modern foundry can use X-rays and CT scanning to check for microscopic casting defects that can lead to part failure.
