ALUMINIUM SHELL CASTING

The gravity-cast aluminum casting is the ideal solution to produce medium quantities lots.
This aluminum melting process consists in using steel molds made from two half parts that form the “shell mold”. The aluminum, previously arrived to the liquid state (680°C) is poured into the molds from which, after the necessary cooling time, the semi-finished products are extracted. Shell casting guarantees a good surface finish, a good dimensional accuracy and excellent mechanical characteristics.
