What Is the Different between Molding and Casting?


Casting Service

 

Molding and casting are 2 different manufacturing processes. They have differences, but both of them are closely related, we can say they are some how and the same thing.

 

They are related pouring molten liquid into a mold/die which will solidify the shape of cavity mold and die after cooling down. The differences is at pouring material, plastic is for molding, metal is for casting.

 

The equipment or the method by pouring molten liquid is different for molding and casting. The injection pressure and clamping force for high die casting is much more than injection molding. Also, the working temperature for pressure die casting is far more than injection molding.

 

Molding can give you a final product but in case of casting, you may need to do post machining or post finishing to remove some features or deburred. Typically, the cost for molding is less expensive than casting, not only for the product but also for the tooling.
