About our Green Sand Casting

The Green Sand Casting (or Sand Casting) is the most commonly used casting process, utilizes expendable sand molds to form complex metal parts that can be made of nearly any alloy, in today’s casting industry.

With Green Sand Casting, its versatility allows A&B’s produce small parts that weigh less than one pound or large parts that weight several tons. These casting parts are high quality and very cost effective.

Green Sand Benefits

This casting process is favored for many of its properties listed below:

Less waste than other machining processes, especially since unused material can simply be added to the next mold.
Enabling a wide range of shapes with a brief turnaround, especially when based on previously used molds or standard designs.
Useful with all types of Green Sand Casting equipment and for a majority of alloys poured.
Effective with components weighing ounces or tons.
