Non-ferrous casting refers to casting metals that do not contain iron (non-ferrous metals). These metals are considered alloys. This casting method creates various components and products, ranging from small, intricate parts to large, complex structures. Non-ferrous metals are chosen for casting due to their desirable properties, such as being lightweight and having corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, and malleability. In addition, these metals are recyclable. They are typically used for structural applications because of these desirable properties.

Non-ferrous metals and their uses

Some common non-ferrous metals cast include:

Aluminum: Lightweight and corrosion-resistant, aluminum is widely used in casting for applications such as automotive components, aircraft parts, and household products.

Zinc: Used for casting smaller components, zinc is known for its ability to provide intricate details and corrosion resistance. It's commonly used in die-casting.

Copper and its Alloys: Copper, brass, and bronze are often cast for plumbing fittings, electrical components, and decorative items.

Magnesium: Lightweight and strong, magnesium is used in casting for aerospace and automotive applications.

From cars to plumbing, non-ferrous castings are used in many industrial applications. 

The casting process

The non-ferrous casting process typically involves the following steps:

01

Pattern Making: A pattern is created from a replica of the final product, usually made from wood, plastic, or metal.

02

Molding: This step requires making a mold from the pattern. This can involve various materials and methods, including sand casting, investment casting, or die casting.

03

Melting: A chosen non-ferrous metal is heated until it becomes molten.

04

Pouring: The molten metal is poured into the mold to take the shape of the pattern.

05

Cooling and Solidification: The metal will cool and solidify within the mold.

06

Removing the Casting: After solidification, the casting is removed from the mold, and any additional finishing processes, such as machining or surface treatment, may be performed.

Non-ferrous casting is a versatile method used in various industries to produce a wide range of products with diverse shapes, sizes, and properties.
