What is aluminium sand casting?

For aluminium sand casting, the shape of the product is transferred to a special type of sand using a model. For this, the product is divided into two halves. After compacting the sand, the model is removed and the two halves are placed together. The resulting cavity - in the shape of the product - can then be filled with molten aluminium. Once this process is complete, the sand is removed and you end up with an aluminium casting. Aluminium sand casting is suitable for producing small series of castings of 1-50 kg.

Where is the product casted?

The aluminium sand casting process is performed at our our aluminium foundries in China. Our aluminium foundry is ISO 9001:2015, IATF 16949:2016 and ISO 14001:2015 certified to guarantee the quality of our castings and offer our clients the assurance they want.

We will think along with you throughout the entire casting process

With our extensive experience, we at Perla AluCast know exactly what you need during the development and production of aluminium castings. We can assist you at every stage of the casting process. Compared to other aluminium foundries, we go the extra mile.

During the design process

After you submit your request, we will evaluate the 3D design of your casting together. We will advise you on how to optimise the casting's design for production. This helps to minimise the risks during production and will lead to a better - and often cheaper - end product. If your casting forms part of a larger product, we will make the component easier and faster to assemble. 

During the production process

Before we begin the aluminium sand casting process, we will create a product file and draw up a planning. Next, we will begin production of the mould. We perform interim inspections at various stages during production. Before shipping the castings to you, we will perform a final inspection with the help of the product file.

After the production process

Once the production process is complete and the final inspection has been performed, it is time to ship the aluminium castings to you. If necessary, we can use e.g. CNC processing, shot blasting, wet painting, powder coating or heat treatment to finish and strengthen the castings.
