Types of Foundries

At Omega Sinto Foundry Machinery Ltd, we use our wealth of experience to answer some of the often-asked questions on the foundry industry, foundry equipment and the processes involved. Read on to discover more about the various types of foundry, and how they differ.

What are the foundry types?

Sand casting utilises sand moulds to create metal castings, which form integral parts of vital machinery that is relied upon by over 80% of manufactured goods. In the foundries themselves, the fundamental difference that sets foundries apart is whether they are ferrous or non-ferrous; i.e whether they work using iron or iron-based metals such as steel, or other types of metals like aluminium, brass, or bronze.

Chemically bonded sand casting

Our equipment is tailor-made for use in chemically bonded or “no-bake” mould production, where sand is mixed with a binder to create a uniform and durable mould, ready to be used in the casting process. This is also known as “air set” mould production.

Who and what is this suitable for?

Our ranges of specialised foundry machinery designed for the no-bake foundry sector can be used in a variety of situations and industries, such as:
  • Jobbing foundries
  • Prototype castings
  • Heavy engineering
  • Specialised automotive castings
  • Casting for mining solutions
  • Construction equipment castings
  • Petrochemical industry castings
