Castings are solid metal items that are produced through a manufacturing process. A mould is filled with molten metal. The metal cools and solidifies in the shape of the mould cavity once it is in the mould. Casting allows us a great deal of flexibility when it comes to producing complicated components, examples include epoxy, concrete, plaster and clay.

There are four kinds of casting:

  • Die-casting
  • Investment casting
  • Plaster casting
  • Sand casting

The main objective of this course is to make you understand the casting process in greater detail. The traditional casting (sand casting) is the primary focus of the course, however, current casting processes such as die casting, centrifugal casting and investment casting will be explored as well.
