AutoCAST is a software program for casting methods design, simulation and optimization developed by IIT Bombay.
In metalworking and jewellery making, casting is a process in which a liquid metal is somehow delivered into a mold (it is usually delivered by a crucible) that contains a hollow shape (i.e., a 3-dimensional negative image) of the intended shape.
Centrifugal casting or rotocasting is a casting technique that is typically used to cast thin-walled cylinders.
Clay is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with possible traces of quartz (SiO2), metal oxides (Al2O3, MgO etc.) and organic matter.
Concrete, usually Portland cement concrete, is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time—most frequently a lime-based cement binder, such as Portland cement, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement.
Core plugs are used to fill the sand casting core holes found on water-cooled internal combustion engines.
Curing is a term in polymer chemistry and process engineering that refers to the toughening or hardening of a polymer material by cross-linking of polymer chains, brought about by electron beams, heat, or chemical additives.
Die casting is a metal casting process that is characterized by forcing molten metal under high pressure into a mold cavity.
Epoxy is either any of the basic components or the cured end products of epoxy resins, as well as a colloquial name for the epoxide functional group.
Glass casting is the process in which glass objects are cast by directing molten glass into a mould where it solidifies.
Investment casting is an industrial process based on lost-wax casting, one of the oldest known metal-forming techniques.
Lost-foam casting (LFC) is a type of evaporative-pattern casting process that is similar to investment casting except foam is used for the pattern instead of wax.
Lost-wax casting (also called "investment casting", "precision casting", or cire perdue in French) is the process by which a duplicate metal sculpture (often silver, gold, brass or bronze) is cast from an original sculpture.
MAGMA Gießereitechnologie GmbH is a developer and supplier of software for casting process simulation.
Manufacturing is the production of merchandise for use or sale using labour and machines, tools, chemical and biological processing, or formulation.
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite.
Molding or moulding (see spelling differences) is the process of manufacturing by shaping liquid or pliable raw material using a rigid frame called a mold or matrix.
Permanent mold casting is a metal casting process that employs reusable molds ("permanent molds"), usually made from metal.
Plaster is a building material used for the protective and/or decorative coating of walls and ceilings and for moulding and casting decorative elements.
Polyester is a category of polymers that contain the ester functional group in their main chain.
Rachel Whiteread, CBE (born 20 April 1963) is an English artist who primarily produces sculptures, which typically take the form of casts.
Rapid casting is an integration of conventional casting with rapid prototyping/3D printing.
A riser, also known as a feeder, is a reservoir built into a metal casting mold to prevent cavities due to shrinkage.
Sand casting, also known as sand molded casting, is a metal casting process characterized by using sand as the mold material.
Slipcasting or slip casting is a technique for the mass-production of pottery and ceramics, especially for shapes not easily made on a wheel.
A thermoset, also called a thermosetting plastic, is a plastic that is irreversibly cured from a soft solid or viscous liquid, prepolymer or resin.
Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs.
