custom metal casting molds

In metal castingcasting means a process, in which liquid metal is poured into a mold, that contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and is then allowed to cool and solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process. Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods.

Casting molds processes have been known for thousands of years, and widely used for sculpture, especially in bronzejewellery in precious metals, and weapons and tools. Traditional techniques include lost-wax castingplaster mold casting and sand casting.
