This process is chosen for the production of small numbers of castings, for complex shape castings requiring intricate cores, or for large castings.
Limitations include low casting rate, 3-5mm minimum wall thickness, poor linear tolerance (e.g. 4mm/m), rough surface finish (6.5-12.5mm), and a coarser grain size than gravity die castings.
The huge advantage of sand casting is the production of complex shapes however the surface finish and tolerances of the finished casting are poor relative to die castings. Production times can also be a lot longer than other casting processes such as gravity die casting and high pressure die casting.

Comprehensive set-up records and quality data ensure consistent production and reduce set-up time.
Quality is achieved by pride in workmanship, backed up by an excellent quality system to ISO9001. For critical components, MRT can provide X-ray, dye penetrant and pressure testing.
Routine tool maintenance, breakdowns and modifications can all be undertaken in-house to reduce tool down time.
Our expertise can help you optimise designs, eliminating elements which add unnecessary costs.
