Sand casting patterns

sand casting engine mold

Durable, reliable precision sand and green sand tooling

For large castings, low volume components, prototypes, and simple components, sand casting patterns are the way to go. But their inherent flexibility is a double-edged sword when poorly built molds handicap foundries with defects and blemishes.

We specialize in precision and only build molds with attention to details and design best practices. This way, you can work with an accurate pattern that’s easy to install and maintain.

    Prevent casting defects and blemishes with craftsmanship and smart design

    Sand casting patterns need a tight package to form consistent parts. Our journeyman patternmakers bench and polish every one until they’re correct for your application. This prevents sand from sticking to the pattern’s corners or wedges, which can cause blemishes.

    But there are also ways our design engineers can ensure sand won’t stick before we even start building. By increasing the draft to allow the casting to pull more easily or adding a crush groove to the design, you’ll cast more defect-free parts and deal with less scrap.
