Cores may be defined as forms, which are usually made up of sand.
Moulding operations are tuned towards preparing moulds for receiving molten metal.
Melting and Pouring
Melting may be described as the preparation of molten metal for casting, which is taken up in a specifically designated area of the foundry.
Fettling / Cleaning
Cleaning comprises the essential process of removal of sand, scale, and excess metal from the casting.
As a further step to ensure the quality of the material, further processing such as heat-treatment, surface treatment, additional inspection, or machining is performed, based on customer specifications, before the material is despatched.
