A green sand process can produce aluminium castings of varying sizes in low, medium or high volume to suit almost any foundry’s needs. Castings can be uncomplicated or complex, safety-critical components with low porosity and excellent physical properties.
In the right applications, the green-sand-based process offers lower costs than other methods. It’s ultra-flexible, with fast pattern changes that are perfect for short runs. Compared to die casting:
- tooling costs are low
- updating component designs is quick and easy
- there’s no need for energy-hungry tooling temperature control
DISA and StrikoWestofen, both part of Norican Group, offer a joint solution for aluminium casting production. Whether you want 100 or fewer moulds per hour or maximum DISAMATIC speeds, we have the right equipment for your foundry.
