General Introduction of Gravity Casting
-Less expensive than investment r die castings.
-Dimensional tolerances closer than sand castings.
-Castings are dense and pressure tight.
-Only non-ferrous metals may be cast by this process.
-Less competitive with sand cast process when three of more sand cores are required.
-Higher tooling cost than sand casting.
-Use when process recommended for parts subjected to hydrostatic pressure.
-Ideal for parts having low profile, no cores and quantities in excess of 300.
