Pros & Cons of Sand Casting

Sand casting is the most widely used metal casting process accounting for a major percentage of total cast in weight. To be able to understand any manufacturing process, first careful consideration must be given not only for its advantages but importantly for its potential limitations and process difficulties.

Product design process

Product design process is a set of planned activities that convert an idea into a product and make it commercially available to the end user

Mechanical Transmission

Mechanical power transmission is the transfer of energy from where it’s generated to a place where it is used to perform work

Casting processes

Process in which molten metal is poured into a mould that contains a hollow cavity of a desired shape and allowed to cool down to form a solidified part

Additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing is commonly given to the technologies that use successive layers of material to create a three dimensional object

Metal forming

Metal is plastically deformed to create shapes by a force that exceeds the material yield strength where strain hardening occurs.

Manufacturing Processes

Manufacturing engineering or manufacturing process are the steps through which raw materials are transformed into a final product

Mechanical Elements

Machine elements are basic mechanical parts and features used as the building blocks of machine design
