shell moulding

  1. 1. SHELL MOULDING PRODUCTION PROCESS -VISHNU RC VIJAYAN
  2. 2. MOULDING  Moulding is the process of manufacturing, by shaping manufacturing by shaping pliable raw material using applicable raw material using a rigid frame or model called a rigid frame or model called a pattern
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION  Shell moulding, also known as shell-mould casting, is an expendable mould casting process that uses a resin covered sand to form the mould  As compared to sand casting, this process has better dimensional accuracy, a higher productivity rate, and lower labour requirements  It is used for small to medium parts that require high precision. Shell mould casting is a metal casting process similar to sand casting, in that molten metal is poured into an expendable mould.  A reusable pattern allows for higher production rates, while the disposable moulds enable complex geometries to be cast
  4. 4.  Shell mould casting requires the use of a metal pattern, oven, sand-resin mixture, dump box, and molten metal  Shell mould casting allows the use of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals, most commonly using cast iron, carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloys, and copper alloys  Typical parts are small-to-medium in size and require high accuracy, such as gear housings, cylinder heads, connecting rods, and lever arms
  5. 5. PROCESS Shell Moulding involves the following processes Pattern creation - A two-piece metal pattern is created in the shape of the desired part, typically from iron or steel. Mould creation - First, each pattern half is heated to 175-370 °C (350-700 °F) and coated with a lubricant to facilitate removal. Next, the heated pattern is clamped to a dump box, which contains a mixture of sand and a resin binder. Mould assembly - The two shell halves are joined together and securely clamped to form the complete shell mould. If any cores are required, they are inserted prior to closing the mould. The shell mould is then placed into a flask and supported by a backing material.
  6. 6.  Pouring - The mould is securely clamped together while the molten metal is poured from a ladle into the gating system and fills the mould cavity.  Cooling - After the mould has been filled, the molten metal is allowed to cool and solidify into the shape of the final casting.  Casting removal - After the molten metal has cooled, the mould can be broken and the casting removed. Trimming and cleaning processes are required to remove any excess metal from the feed system and any sand from the mould.
  7. 7. UTILITIES REQUIRED FOR THIS PROCESS Metal Pattern Oven Sand-resin mixture Dump box Molten Metal APPLICATIONS Crankshaft Model tubing Fabrications Automotive components Hydraulic control Housing etc
  8. 8. ADVANTAGES & DISADVANTAGES  One of the greatest advantages of this process is that it can be completely automated for mass production  The high productivity, low labour costs, good surface finishes, and precision of the process can more than pay for itself if it reduces machining costs  One disadvantage is that the gating system must be part of the pattern because the entire mould is formed from the pattern, which can be expensive.  Another is the resin for the sand is expensive, however not much is required because only a shell is being formed
  9. 9. PATTERN CREATION  A two piece metal pattern is created in the shape of the the desired part typically from iron and steel.  Other materials are sometimes used such as aluminum for low volume production or graphite for casting reactive material.
  10. 10. Mould Creation  First, each pattern half is heated to 175°C - 370°C and coated with a lubricant to facilitate removal.  Next, the heated pattern is clamped to a dump box which contains a mixture of sand and resin binder.  The dump box inverted allowing this sand-resin mixture to coat the pattern.  The heated pattern partially cures the mixture which now forms a shell around the patterns.  Each pattern half and surrounding shell is cured to completion in anoven and then the shell halves are joined together.
  11. 11. MOULD ASSEMBLY  The two shell halves are joined and securely clamped to form the complete shell mould  If any cores are required, they are inserted prior to closing the mould  The shell mould is then placed into a flask and supported by a backing material

  13. 13.  The mould is securely clamped together while the molten is poured from a ladle into the gating system and fills the mould cavity Pouring
  14. 14. COOLING  After the mould has been filled the molten metal is allowed to solidify into the shape of the final casting
  15. 15. CASTING REMOVAL  After the molten metal has been cooled , the mold can be broken and casting can be removed  Trimming and cleaning process can be used to remove any excess metal from the feed system and sand from the mould
