Sand Casting, Investment Casting - Gedik Casting

Sand Casting

Sand casting is among the most preferred methods for casting techniques. This method is also the simplest and practical casting technique. During the process, the material used for casting is transferred into the casting sand. The molten metal is filled into the cavity and the casting material becomes an integral part of the product. Once the casted material cools down, it is removed from the sand. With this process, a product is obtained in accordance with the original design.

To get the best result during a complex casting process, one should use good quality casting sand.

Investment Casting

Investment casting is a procedure that allows the casting of parts that are hard to produce at the desired quality. It is a technique that accelerates prototype studies and mass production. Thanks to this method, parts with smooth surfaces can be obtained with minimal processing cost.

Investment casting refers to the extraction of the wax material from the mold after its encapsulation in ceramic, followed by the pouring of molten metal into the mold. This method is ideal for the production of small and hard-to-cast parts. Many metals, such as steel alloys, aluminum and stainless steel, can be used in investment casting.

Gedik Casting

The problems in the global supply chain that emerged during the pandemic have elevated the importance of domestic production. Recent developments have helped increase the yearly average growth of the metal casting sector since 2011 to 7%. According to data shared by Turkish Foundry Association (TÜDÖKSAD), the export volume of the member companies operating in the sector is calculated as US$4.1 billion. The resulting volume places Türkiye in ninth place in terms of global casting production.
