Processes

Newby Foundries Steel produce high quality sand castings using both the shell and airset moulding processes.  Therefore we are able to offer customers a range of solutions from intricate high tolerance castings to large low volume parts.

Shell moulding

 

  • Shell moulds are produced by pouring resin covered sand onto a heated iron pattern.  The resin fuses together and cures to create a hard ‘biscuit’ shell.
  • Parts produced using the shell process achieve excellent reproduction of detail, a very good surface finish and CT9 tolerance for high dimensional accuracy which reduces machining requirements.  Complex core assemblies are possible due to the strength of the cores.
  • Our plate size is 600 X 400mm and castings must fit within this size limit.
  • Suitable for parts up to 25kg
  • Medium to high volume production

Airset moulding

 

  • Airset moulds are produced from wood or resin patterns mounted in frames.  Sand is mixed with catalyst and binder which causes a hardening reaction.  Before the sand cures it is rammed into the frames.  The resulting mould can then released from the frames and assembled.
  • Suitable for parts up to 750kg
  • A tolerance of CT11 can be achieved
  • Low to medium volume production
