Sand Molding 

Sand mold casting is the best-value mold method for this component based on the casting requirements and the production factors.  

  • Green Sand Molding 
    Moist, clay-bonded sand is tightly packed around  wood, urethane, or metal patterns in mold boxes. The pattern halves are removed, and the  two mold halves are assembled with or without cores.   

    • The term "green" denotes the presence of moisture in the molding sand, and indicates that the mold is not baked or dried. 

The Dotson Company uses green sand as its primary molding method.
