A Design Study in
Ductile Iron - Dotson Company Pivot Frame
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.
