Improving the Sand Casting Process with 3D Printing

A Sand Mold Casting Foundry is where “metal” castings are made. Sand casting is the process through which molten metal alloys are poured into molds made from sand. It is one of the most cost-effective casting processes used to manufacture ferrous & nonferrous parts. Aluminum, Copper and Stainless Steel are the alloys used in the sand casting foundry @ Gamma Foundries Inc.

Advancement in technology has helped the Sand Mold Casting industry. A perfect example is the technological advancements in the casting process that has allowed for sand molds, and sand cores to be made utilizing 3-D printing technology.

Sand Mold Casting is used for a wide range of industries and an even wider scope of applications from Commercial to Military, Naval, and Aerospace. Through the utilization of 3D printers in the casting process Gamma Foundries Inc. has the ability to offer shorter lead time for prototypes, and also allowing for the opportunity to manufacture complex geometrical castings.

Antimicrobial Benefits of Copper and Its Alloys Vs. Other Materials in The Market

During the past months one topic has reached all the main news around the world… COVID-19. During this pandemic, awareness of prevention and the implementation of new strategies to create materials with antimicrobial benefits have grown. In consequence, we want to share with our clients some comparisons between materials with antimicrobial properties. We'll address Copper and as well as Stainless Steel.

Copper has been one of the most ancient metals used in the world. It has been used in different sectors of daily life such as construction, coins, power generation and transmission, plumbing, telecommunication links and many more. Beside these uses, lately during the past years, one of its main implementations has been on surfaces that constantly are touched by people in places as hospitals, schools, libraries, etc. When copper is used in high quantities on surfaces, it has the characteristic of creating holes on the cell membrane of the bacteria’s and destroying the DNA & RNA inside of them in a couple of hours and killing the 99% of the bacteria.

Antimicrobial Benefits of Copper Alloys

During the past several months, we all have had our lives affected not only in Canada, and North America, but also around the world by Covid-19. With the current pandemic of this deadly virus, increasing awareness and supporting the implementation of antimicrobial/antibacterial materials is imperative for our industry. Therefore, we wanted to share some information that may, and should be of interest, specifically the Antimicrobial benefits of Copper and its alloys.

For more than 5000 years civilizations around the world have acknowledged, and understood the health benefits that Copper possesses. It is a self sterilizing, antimicrobial element. Copper, Brass, and Bronze kill greater than 99.9% of many bacteria within 2 hours of exposure, and will continue to kill bacteria offering long term protection whereas “Antimicrobial coatings” are fragile, and can deteriorate wearing off over time.
