What is casting and where is it used?
Casting manufacturing process
Casting is a manufacturing process which was already utilized in the Copper Age to produce casting parts from liquid, molten metal. During this process, metals are melted and then molded while still in a liquid state. This manufacturing process is still popular today due to its high reproducibility and good material utilization. From manhole covers to aircraft engines – castings find use in a wide variety of areas.
Casting parts vs. conventional machining of parts
A new component, the motor flange, was developed for the further development of conveyor technology. Designers and product developers questioned how the new workpiece could be manufactured quickly, reliably and economically.
