A Critical Review on Casting Types and Defects

Authors(3) :-T. Venkat Sai, T. Vinod, Gunda Sowmya

Casting is the oldest manufacturing method and well known metallurgical process. Casting process basically involves introduction of molten metal into a mold cavity and subsequently the molten metal takes the shape of mold cavity. Very simple and high end complicated shapes and designs can be made from any metal that can be melted. Casting is an integrated process which is considered as an experienced artful work with high end quality aspects. Even though these high quality aspects are considered, defects are very much inherent in casting process. The main objective of the current review is to explain casting types and discuss the possible defects during the process of casting. The scope of the review also includes causes and remedies of casting defects.
