  • Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern Processes
  • Permanent Mold/No Pattern Processes

The Expendable Mold/Reusable Pattern Processes section includes an examination of the most common casting process, sand-mold casting, and its variations.

The Expendable Mold/Expendable Pattern Processes section has demonstrations of investment casting and evaporative-foam casting.

The Permanent Mold/No Pattern Processes section examines the more precise casting techniques, such as permanent-mold casting, die casting, and centrifugal casting.
