  Advantages of Sand Castings in Heavy Equipment Industry

Sand castings have following several major advantages that make them particularly suitable for the heavy equipment market.

1. Variety
A wide variety of materials and alloys can be cast, to meet the strength and durability needs of the part. Material examples include gray iron, ductile iron, and compacted graphite iron (CGI).

2. Complexity
Cores and gating systems can be used to add to the complexity and shape of the part.

3. Versatility
Sand casting can be used to produce parts in any size, from the smallest to the largest and heaviest.

4. Production Rate
In the right conditions, high volumes of parts can be created. A short lead time from concept to production keeps production timeframes on schedule.

5. Production Costs
Low tooling and start-up costs provide value in the production process, for medium and large scale production needs. Sand casting also has a low set-up cost and is cost-effective to modify.
