General Information

Sand casting
Sand casting can create exceptionally complex or detailed castings and can be used to cast nearly any metal alloy.


  • High production adaptability
  • Small quantities are possible
  • Large components can be made

Possible materials

  • Ductile cast iron (also ADI – Austempered ductile iron)
  • Grey cast iron
  • (Stainless) steel
  • Non-ferrous metal

Technical specifications

  • The commonly used casting tolerance table for linear dimensions is CT10 according to ISO 8062 (wall thicknesses CT11)
  • Weight: from 0.2 kg
  • Maximum dimensions: 2,000 mm
  • Casting wall thickness: ≥ 6-8 mm. Smaller is possible, depending on the structure
  • Draft angle: min. ± 1.5°
  • Geometric tolerances that are required for the function should be specified in the drawing
  • As far as possible, use uniform wall thicknesses to achieve a uniform solidification of material. In case of different wall thicknesses, inclusions and cracks, and even porosity may result

Finishing options

  • Electrolytic zinc plating
  • Blasting
  • KTL (Cataphoresis)
  • Primer, wet painting and powder coating
  • Hot-dip galvanising
