Impro’s sand casting expertise is globally recognized. The sand casting process involves creating a mold from a three-dimensional sand pattern, then filling the mold cavity with molten metal, which is then cooled and solidified.
The benefits of sand casting are numerous. There are minimal restrictions on the shape, size, and material. The process is extremely efficient by using dry sand, green sand, or chemically bonded sand. Sand casting is a better option over die casting because it allows for low or high-volume production.
Sand Casting Specifications
Impro’s experience in creating high-end sand castings from high-grade materials and consisting of complex geometries is beyond comparison. In our high-tech facilities, we offer both machine and manual molding operations in our resin sand casting processes. We produce parts in low-to-high volumes and pour castings ranging from 0.5 kgs to 20 tons. Our green sand castings range from 0.5 kgs to 30 kgs.
Sand Casting Capabilities
Impro’s inspection capabilities are top of the line. Spectrographic and manual quantitative analysis; metallographic analysis; Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers hardness inspection; mechanical property analysis, low and normal temperature impact testing; cleanliness inspection; and UT, MT and RT inspection are all conducted on site at our facilities.
Our inspection equipment is top-grade. Our Speck spectrometer checks 28 chemical elements. Our Zeiss metallurgical microscope produces high-resolution images 1,000 times magnified, and our Zeiss cleanliness meter determines particle size and quantity to ensure materials meet or exceed the international standard. We use GE ultrasonic detectors to discover flaws, and have X-ray machines and accelerators that can scan castings with 200 mm maximum wall thickness.
