Comparison of Casting and Forging

Cast Iron Grades

There are many different cast iron grades in different countries/regions. Usually, we can know the tensile strength and elongation of different grades of cast iron from the grades chart. Here, we have listed all common grades of gray cast iron and ductile iron for your reference. Please check the following gray cast iron and ductile […]

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Green Sand Casting Process

The outer sand molds used in sand casting are divided into three types: clay green sand, clay dry sand and chemical hardened sand, according to the binder used in the sand and the way it builds its strength. This time, I will briefly introduce the advantages and disadvantages of Yide Casting‘s green sand casting process. […]
