AMPO’s patternless services for sand casting parts

AMPO FOUNDRY has developed patternless services for the production of large sand casting parts, with a maximum moulding box size of 3000mm x 3000mm, in order to meet customer requirements and continuously adapt to market needs.

This technology has been developed by the engineering team of AMPO along with an international research centre, as well as with the guidance and the essential contribution of one of its main customers, obtaining an optimum patternless casting method.

Due to this, AMPO is currently manufacturing, by patternless and sand moulding technologies, a 48” butterfly valve body and disc for one of its main global customers.

This technology reduces the need to manufacture wooden patterns. Consequently, it is a very cost-effective way of producing one-off or small production run castings, with benefits like; lead time reduction, manufacturing cost reduction, high integrity and dimensional accuracy castings, appropriate surface finishes, etc.
