||The green sand mold is not
the best choice of molding method for the brake pedal
Go back to
the mold page and choose an alternate molding process.
The sand mold
cannot provide the needed dimensional and surface finish. Sawing and grinding operations
are required to remove the rigging and will introduce variations in the finished
The lower thermal conductivity of the sand mold slows the
solidification in the casting, producing a larger grain size and lower strength.
The extra rigging (risers) required for sand castings will
require additional metal feedstock and will reduce the metal yield.
