Casting Method
Green Sand Casting -Sand casting produces industry leading metal castings using a mold usually made from sand formed around a replica of the object, also called a pattern, to be cast and is removed once the sand has been compacted. Pep Set Casting – Uses chemically bonded sand to achieve similar results.
