Brass Casting

3 Common Brass Casting Methods

While steel casting may be among our most popular services, it isn't the only type of metal casting our team at UB Metal Casting does. Brass is wonderfully malleable and can be used in a variety of products. Brass castings are commonly use in construction industry due to the its natural resistance to rust and corrosion, brass is widely used for household appliances and plumbing fittings. The following is a look at the three most common types of brass casting methods we perform to get you the products you so desire:

  1. Sand spreads. Sand spreading is one of the oldest methods of brass casting but, just like with older methods of steel casting, it is still very effective. It also happens to be one of the cheapest methods, making it a good choice if you're looking for prototypes or to save a few dollars.

  2. Die spreading. With die-spreading brass casting, we create a recyclable mold from stainless steel. We can then use that mold to make many identical units. This makes die spreading a good choice if you have a big order you need to be done fast.

  3. Lost wax casting. Lost wax casting is a technique we do with steel casting as well as brass casting -- and it is just as effective for both. As the name suggests, a wax variation is used to assist with the process and the result is parts and components that are very detailed, clean, and smooth.
