Foundry Manual , , is an update to the Foundry Manual that was created primarily for use by foundry personnel aboard repair ships and tenders.
This article discusses the types of patterns used for a specific application such as loose patterns, match plate patterns, cope and drag patterns, and special patterns. It describes the principles of the patternmaking techniques used to make expendable molds and for metal casting processes such as die casting and permanent mold casting. The article reviews the pattern features and mold production considerations used in pattern design, namely, parting line considerations, addition of gates and risers, core prints, and locating points. It discusses the pattern allowances for ensuring a dimensionally correct final pattern.
Casting Patterns: Functions, Material, Types, Allowances [With PDF]
A pattern is an essential tool for the Casting Process. It is used for molding a cavity in the molding sand mixture such that the formed cavity is looked the same as the casting product.
The selection of material for pattern depends on different factors that include the number of casting, quality of casting and the degree of finish.
Generally, we use 5 different types of material to make the patter and those are:. As we all know woods are easily available, and the price is quite low so it is satisfied us some basic criteria which I mentioned above. However wood is attracted to moisture and sometimes it can change shape on high temperature or after dry out from moisture, this is an important con of using wood as a pattern.
Not only this reason woods are very week in strength, and it wears out quickly due to its low resistance to sand abrasion. In metals, cast iron, brass, aluminum are generally used in patterns.
It gives smooth surface finish, this is the only reason that metals are used in large production casting workshops. Although there are some disadvantages of using this type of pattern like it is a little bit costlier, heavy, sometimes rusting effect occurred on the surfaces of the metals. It is generally used if you need to set up the pattern quickly. The main advantage of this pattern is it can easily cast into intricate shapes. Different types of plastics are nowadays used in pattern because of their lighter weight, strength, and dimensionally stable and also for cheap in cost.
Thermoplastics and polystyrene are commonly used for making patterns, and Thermosetting plastics such as phenolics and epoxies are also used in a pattern. A wax pattern used in the investment casting process. By using this pattern we get a high degree of accuracy and have an excellent surface finish. However it needs little care handling otherwise it can be broken, and it is used in small casting. The pattern can be classified in different types as per their design, some of those are mentioned below:.
As the name denotes a single piece that means it has only 1 section, and inside this, the shape of the pattern is made. It has two sections and this two-section is connected by pin named dwell pin to attach the two-portion. A multipiece pattern is made by more than two pieces, the upper one is called the cope, middle on is called cheek, and the bottom one is named the drag portion.
In match Plate Pattern, the cope and drag section of the split pattern are mounted on the opposite of metal or wood plate. This type of pattern is divided into two sections along the parting line formed by the metal or wood plate. In this type of pattern, the molten metal pours through the runner and then it passes through the several gates and then finally to the pattern. Sweep Pattern is designed for the half shape of the casting products, it is consisted of a mold cavity, rotating spindle, and sweep pattern.
This type of pattern is used when a pattern has projecting parts that lie below or above the main parting line in a mold. That means when some parts of the product have a little outer or inner edge than to casting those part we use loose piece patterns. This type of pattern is not totally solid, it looks like a rib cage. Where we make only the outer or inner surface structure.
This type of pattern is generally made of metals and fitted on a plate. It is like a split pattern, one half of the pattern is placed in the upper part of the plate and another one is fitted on the bottom of the plate. The final product is completed on a few repeated steps using this pattern, 1st we mold it in one place then we rotated the pattern to the next portion and again the molding is done. To make a casting perfect we need to consider the allowances because after cooling the molten metal it can shrink and makes any distortion.
So there are 5-types of allowance we are considering when designing a pattern and those are:. When the metal is in the liquid stage, the liquid shrinkage occurred.
When the casting is done, due to the removal of the pattern sometimes the edges of the casting brake, to overcome this situation sometimes we provide a taper for easy removal of the pattern from the mold. Generally, a degree draft is provided with the outer surface of the pattern to overcome this brokerage. After casting we need to do some machining operations, may grinding, or surface finishing operation, these all operations are metal removal operation, so we need to keep the size of the pattern little bigger than the actual size so that after removal of some material, it will perfectly be shaped.
Some time within the pattern due to cooling of the metal stress is generated to overcome this situation we need to distort the pattern in the opposite direction. This is all about Patterns used in casting, I hope I covered all the essential topics related to the pattern. The pattern is the same as the product which is made, there is a cavity inside the pattern where the same shaped design is made, and after pouring the molten metal into the cavity the main product is generated by cooling that is called Casting.
There are 5-types of allowance we are considering when designing a pattern and those are: 1. Contraction Allowances 2. Draft Allowances 3. Finishing or Machining allowance 4. Shake allowance 5. Distortion allowance. The types of patterns are: 1. Single Piece Pattern 2. Two-Piece or Split Pattern 3. Multipiece Pattern 4. Match Plate Pattern 5. Gated Pattern 6.
Sweep Pattern 7. Loose Piece Pattern 8. Skeleton Pattern 9. Shell Pattern Segmental Pattern. Your email address will not be published. Save my name and email in this browser for the next time I comment. In this article, you will get to know about Rake Angle, its importance and its types.

Castings pp Cite as. As a method of producing metal shapes, sand casting is of very long standing and currently occupies a most important position in the metal casting industry. The main features which contribute towards this popularity are the ease, the economics and, above all, the flexibility of the process, which may be utilised for the production of practically any quantity of castings from one upwards and ranging in weight from tens of grammes to hundreds of tonnes. Modifications to production methods are relatively easy and the sand casting process is suitable for practically all of the cast metals including plain carbon, alloy and manganese steels, white and grey irons, nodular iron, nickel and copper alloys, gunmetals, phosphor and aluminium bronzes, brasses, aluminium alloys and magnesium alloys.
