Designing and production

On this era, casting is required in various fields and has many applications in industry, art, technology and etc. The casting process is one of the oldest sciences and is 7,000 years old. Now, with the advancement of technology and the creation of different methods, casting process leads to the best results ever. The desired part must be designed by the designers and then enter the process of production.

Stages of Casting process:

Preparation of casting mold


Preparation of molten material

Pouring the molten material into the prepared mold

Cooling the molten material inside the mold

Removing the pieces from the mold

Grinding and removal of burrs

The most important stage in producing custom-made parts is manufacturing the mold.

Inside the casting molds, a pore is made in the form of the required customized piece. Basically, these molds are larger than the piece to allow the molten material to shrink during the freezing and cooling process. Casting molds are made in different ways and with different materials such as sand, gypsum, paraffin, polystyrene, metal, etc. Casting molds are generally divided into two types of disposable and permanent ones.

Casting in disposable molds:

These molds, as the name implies, disappear after a single casting process. Sand molds are one of the most widely used molds in this category.

Casting in permanent molds:

These molds do not have the property of expansion, they are made of metal and as the name suggests, they are not damaged after casting and removing the product from the mold, and can be reused many times

  • Design and production of custom parts is done in different ways:

    Types of casting molds:

    Casting with consumable molds

    Precision Casting

    Shell casting

    Vacuum casting

    Casting with consumable polystyrene molds

    Casting with gypsum and ceramic molds

    Casting method is determined by experienced technicians according to the required part, material used, required number and many other factors.

  • The required part is scanned.
  • A two-dimensional drawings of the piece is prepared.
  • A three-dimensional mold of the piece is made.
  • Drawings of the casting model is prepared with the help of a special software for a simulation process of the piece.
  • The choice of materials and alloys is done based on the customer’s requirements or with the help of CES software.
  • Performing the casting process.
  • Quality control of the final product
  • If needed, cutting and machining processes are done.
  • Putting in the furnace if heat treatment is required.
  • Final control of the manufactured parts and performing various QC tests.

Dispatching the products to the customers

  • High risk of working with molten materials
  • Complete dependence on the workforce
  • Poor quality in some Methods
  • Production of various and complex parts in diverse numbers and dimensions
  • Capability of manufacturing very large and heavy parts
  • Ability to manufacture internal and external parts of the product
  • Suitable for mass production and automated production process in some casting methods
