Design and Analysis of Water Based Core Technology for a Casting of Light Weight Alloys: Core Casting

Vijaykumar Arvindbhai Radadiya, Komal G. Dave


Casting of light weight alloys like Aluminium based on sand core are gaining importance in several industrial and automobile applications. For replacing the sand by the salt to make core for lightweight alloys has been under the research owing to its excellent mechanical properties coupled with easy removal without using any kind of chemicals. Addition of salt core used as core material can reduce the solid waste which is generally generated as the core made up of sand.
