How Shell Molding Compares To Other MetalCasting Methods
Metal Casting and Foundry Production | Metal Casting Blog

Molding is the process of preparing a mold to receive molten metal. There are two distinct types of mold processes: Reusable and non-reusable. As the name suggests, reusable molds can be used repeatedly. The casting process does not break down the mold during the metal solidification and cooling process. Reusable molds are usually made from metal.

Mar 12, 2018· However, in some parts of the mold the compressive surface stresses may exceed yield, resulting in permanent, plastic deformation. Other metallurgical events are also in play as the mold distortion occurs over many casting cycles where time at temperature is an issue. This is primarily a computational effort supported by experimental data.
