Foundry core drying oven


Foundries are into casting parts from various metals like aluminum and steel with the help of some specific casting methods. It depends on the nature of the casting metal, details of the finished parts, and the rate of part production. 

Among a plethora of foundry applications, the ceramic molding cast, investment casting, lost foam casting, and sand casting are the usual casting methodologies. A separate type of mold is used for these methods and the use of a foundry core drying oven is a must for heating across the various stages of the process. 

GBM manufactures a foundry core drying oven that serves various purposes. All of our ovens are custom-built to serve the foundry environment in the long run and are developed for specific casting processes. 

Few Key Resources to Note:

Sand-cast molding often helps in manufacturing some components of the foundry core drying oven. Core making and sand casting are beneficial for things that need internal cavities or complicated parts. For molds that are developed properly, it’s a reliable and cost-effective process.
