Venkat Sai, T. Vinod, Gunda Sowmya. Venkat Sai 1, T. Casting process basically involves introduction of molten metal into a mold cavity and subsequently the molten metal takes the shape of mold cavity.
Very simple and high end complicated shapes and designs can be made from any metal that can be melted. Casting is an integrated process which is considered as an experienced artful work with high end quality aspects.
Even though these high quality aspects are considered, defects are very much inherent in casting process. The main objective of the current review is to explain casting types and discuss the possible defects during the process of casting.
The scope of the review also includes causes and remedies of casting defects. Keywords: Casting types, Types of sands, casting defects, remedies. In developing countries, many industries face problems with poor quality aspects and productivity in manufacturing techniques of process parameters.
Even though considering much care in each and every step, the imperfections and causes are seen in casting process. Beside this, finding various types of methods to overcome the different causes and defects is seen in the process. To obtain the good source of knowledge about casting, there failures, causes and cure measurements should be analysed and care is to be taken in casting enhancements .
The technique of conducting casting 2. To The process consists of surrounding the wax pattern make parts of comprised of Iron, bronze, brass and with a mould made of heat resistant investment material, aluminium. The metal of require is gets melted in a eradicating the wax by heating and introducing the furnace at desired temperatures and poured into a mould molten metal into the mould through a channel called cavity formed out of sand. So during the process of casting there are because of inexpensive and relatively free of cost.
The mold cavity is created usually made from metal.
The most common process using two hardened tool steel dies which have been uses gravity to fill the mould, however gas pressure or a machined into shape and work similarly to an injection vacuum are also used. A variation on the typical gravity mould during the process. The casting equipment and casting process, called slush casting, produces hollow the metal dies represent large capital costs and this tends castings.
Common casting metals are aluminium, to limit the process to high-volume production. Other materials include Manufacture of parts using die casting is relatively tin, zinc, and lead alloys and iron and steel are also cast simple.
Once the ceramic material is hardened its 2. The wax is melted out and molten metal is poured into the Centrifugal casting or rotocasting is a casting technique cavity where the wax pattern was. The metal solidifies that is typically used to cast thin-walled cylinders. It is within the ceramic mould and the metal casting is used to cast such materials as metal, glass, and concrete.
It is noted for the high quality of the results attainable, particularly for precise control of their metallurgy and crystal structure. In the centrifugal casting process, molten metal is poured into a spinning die. The die can be spinning either on a vertical or horizontal axis depending on the configuration of the desired part.
Either process may be used to produce multiple parts 3. External structures and shaping can be cast in place to significantly reduce post- The undesired irregularity in a metal casting process is processing including machining or fabrication. Some defects are eliminated and some are repaired. This sand is mostly used for ferrous and non-ferrous material.
It is fine, Segregation soft and has good porosity. This sand is called as dry sand. It possess major strength 3. This is used for larger casting. Facing sand is used directly next to the instantaneous temperature of metal and gas pressure surface of the pattern and it comes in direct contact created in the mould cavity. There are various types of with the molten metal, when the molten metal is defects created in sand casting. A high content of poured into the mould.
It possesses high strength casting defects are caused due to emitting of gases. One and refractoriness as it comes in contact with the of the major casting defects caused due to gases is holes molten metal.

It is made of clay and silica sand gas holes. Gas holes are pinholes and blowhole. The without addition of any used sand.
Old and repeatedly used moulding sand is used for the backing purpose. It is also sometimes called black sand because of the addition of coal dust and burning when it comes in contact with the molten metal. It is also called as oil sand. It is a mixture of silica sand and core oil. Core oil is mixture of linseed oil, resin, light mineral oil and other binding materials. Some defects can be accepted while others can be corrected, otherwise they must be demolished.
Shrinkage defects are two types, they are: open shrinkage defects and closed shrinkage defects. Pipes form at the surface of Depletion of collapse of core and poor design structure.
Closed shrinkage defects, also Using heavy force during the ramming.
Sand inclusion and slag inclusion are also called as scab or blacking scab. They are inclusion defects Mismatch in mould defect which can be mainly seen looks like there are slags inside of metal castings. It will cause Irregularities formed in sand inclusions, close to the the dislocation at the parting line . To control these defects, different remedies and causes are discussed. This study is useful for industries where casting is undertaken as a manufacturing process.
