Casting is a process in which molten metal is poured or injected and allowed to solidify in a suitably shaped mold cavity. During or after cooling, the cast part is removed from the mold and then processed for delivery.
Casting processes and cast-material technologies vary from simple to highly complex. Material and process selection depends on the part's complexity and function, the product's quality specifications, and the projected cost level.
The exceptional machinability of graphite dramatically shortens the time needed to produce molds. In fact, the machining of graphite molds often takes weeks less than the machining of die casting molds. Also, the high accuracy and exceptional surface finish of parts cast in graphite molds virtually eliminate the additional finishing steps required with other casting techniques. This further reduces the total time from design to production.
