Sand casting foundry

Having all the equipment to carry out sand casting, our teams reproduce any vintage vehicle part that can be cast.

Sand casting uses a refractory material in the form of small grains; in this way it is possible to give it the shape one wants, and then fix this shape with an additive. It is therefore a material of choice for the design of single-use moulds.

Thanks to this sand casting technique, which allows metal and/or alloy to be cast, it is possible to create lost or excessively damaged parts. Safety on the road is ensured, and your vehicle regains its performance as when it left the factory

During part restoration it is possible to use the part to be restored as a model. This method, known as counter-casting, makes it possible to obtain a “new” part, but with slightly smaller dimensions than the original (about 1.2% in the case of aluminium) due to shrinkage.

Of course, it is also possible to keep the exact dimensions of the part, starting from an existing part by “dressing” it and directly adding the extra thicknesses related to metal shrinkage and machining requirements.

To obtain a new part that is strictly identical to your original, we produce 3D plans in the design office, as well as 3D printing models that will be used as primary moulds.
