OVERVIEW OF CASTING  Net or near net  One of the most utilized production methods different types of casting named for mold types  Many .

shape.THE FUNCTION OF CASTING  To control the size. composition. carbon. cobalt. sulfur alloy know as a Micro-Melt Maxamet Alloy . tungsten. Iron. chromium. vanadium. and crystalline arrangement of metal products in order to achieve the desired functionality.

 Larger grain sizes usually result in lower densities.  . Faster rates yield larger grain sizes.  Purpose of temperature control is to regulate filling and cooling rates.TEMPERATURE CONTROL Casting methods include ways to heat and cool specific areas of the mold at different rates.  A number of casting defects are caused by fast cooling rates  Grain size is also related to cooling rate.

Annealing is one most common method where a metal piece is heated to crystallization temperature. ductility. Not only harness. the crystals may form any number of arrangements and sizes. Depending on the cooling rate. At which time crystal structures are allowed to reorient themselves. and density.  . magnetism and reactivity are effected. but also conductivity.HEAT TREATMENTS  Different methods of hardening can be implemented to exploit the effects of cooling rate on grain structure.   Grain structure has very noticeable effects many different properties of the final product.

. Metal Casting Increases The Quality And Surface Finishing Of The product.CONCLUSION From This We Know That METAL CASTING Is one Of The Most Important Part In Manufacturing Of Metal Products.
