Stainless Steel Sand Casting
The stainless steel sand casting process is an easy and economical method to create basic part shape. The advantages to this process is the cost savings to achieve the basic part shape, and the flexibility in the size of the castings. These parts can be less than one pound to several tons. Another advantage to off shore sourcing for stainless steel casting is not only will you save on the cost of the casting, but also on the cost of the secondary machining and finishing.
The disadvantage to stainless steel sand castings is the accuracy of the castings. The dimensional accuracy is not as good as other casting methods, and the parts will have a rough surface finish (300-560 RMS). This is why these will most likely need additional machining and processing to be completed. However, provided this additional machining and processing is performed by highly skilled low cost off shore labor the overall financial benefits can be substantial.
