Tool Design and Construction for Sand Casting

Part of the Mechanical Engineering Series book series (MES)


Typically, the sand-casting tool design and fabrication process begins when the tool builder receives the part design from the client or design engineer. In general, the part design can be communicated in variety of ways such as by a physical part, a 2D engineering drawing, a 3D computer generated solid model, or other means that sufficiently conveys the design intent needed for tooling design and fabrication.
