Brass Shell Moulding Parts  Brass Shell Moulding Parts

We cast various Brass shell moulded parts in our foundry as it is a cost-effective way of making intricate castings. Most of these parts made at our shell moulding foundry need minimum machining and are highly cost-efficient.

The key difference between Shell Mould Casting and Sand Casting is the mould. In Shell Mould Casting, the mould is a thin walled shell created by applying sand raisin mixture around the pattern. The pattern is a metal piece in the shape of the part to be cast. The pattern is reused to form multiple Shell Moulds.

The Advantages of Shell Moulding Parts includes :

  • The surface finish is usually good and consistent resulting in lower machining requirement and cost
  • Shell Moulding Casting enables the manufacturing of complex parts with dimensional tolerance of approximately 0.2 mm
  • Tooling costs are comparatively low and shorter lead times are required

Typical Brass Shell Moulding Parts :

  • Brass Electrical connectors and Terminals
  • Brass Fire hose fittings and hose couplings
  • Brass bearing cones and bearing parts
  • Engine parts
  • Sanitary fittings, taps, faucets with core
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic parts, flanges and hose pipe fittings
  • Brass and Bronze marine fittings and boat supplies
