Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) May 22, 2008 -- Metal Casting Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Casting, Metal Casting, and Die Casting. This is part of a new community website that is all about Casting. Members and non-members can visit this Casting page on the Metal Casting website for free at: http://www.metalcastingzone.com/casting-general/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Metal Casting information webpage:
âCasting can be defined as a process of manufacturing, which implies pouring of a âliquidâ material into âA Moldâ containing a desired shaped hollow cavity, and then made to solidify. The ejection or breaking out of the casting then takes place to get the process completed. The use of casting is âforming hot liquid metalsâ or numerous metals that are cooled after having the components like clay, plaster, concrete, and epoxies mixed. Complex shapes are normally made by casting, as other methods are not feasible. Casting came into being around 6000 years ago. âCopper Frogâ is the most ancient casting existing till date since 3200 BC. The process of casting has two distinct subdivisions: non-expendable and expendable mold casting.
âNon-expendableâ mold casting: This technique is inclusive of at least 4 distinct methods: continuous, centrifugal, die, and permanent casting.
Continuous casting: Continuous casting can be defined as a refined process of casting for high-volume, continuous production of âmetal sectionsâ with constant cross-section. The pouring of molten metal into a water-cooled, open-ended copper mold takes place. This allows a âlayerâ of âsolid metalâ to be formed above the âstill-liquidâ center. Continuous casting is widely accepted due to its cost-effectiveness. The metals continuously cast are aluminum, copper, and steel.â
