  1. Aluminum Permanent Mold Casting: This is a casting process in which a reusable metal mold, typically made of steel or iron, is used to shape the aluminum. The mold, also known as the permanent mold, is pre-designed to match the desired part’s shape. The mold is coated with a release agent, and then molten aluminum is poured into it. Once the aluminum solidifies, the mold is opened, and the part is removed. This method is known for its ability to produce high-quality, repeatable parts with fine details and tight tolerances. It is commonly used for producing components in industries like automotive (for engine parts) and consumer goods.
  2. Aluminum Sand Casting: In contrast, sand casting involves the use of a temporary mold made of compacted sand to shape the aluminum. A pattern, which is a replica of the part, is pressed into the sand to create a cavity. Molten aluminum is then poured into this cavity. After the aluminum cools and solidifies, the sand mold is broken to extract the part. Sand casting is a versatile and cost-effective method, making it suitable for producing larger and more intricate parts. It is often used for manufacturing a wide range of aluminum components, including engine blocks, manhole covers, and decorative items.
