A number of propellers, pumps and valves have been successfully cast in sand without using patterns to make the moulds. The work at the Castings Development Centre is part of an EU-funded project to develop patternless casting techniques. By machining moulds and cores directly from blocks of bonded sand on a conventional CNC milling machine, patterns have been eliminated and lead times cut from weeks to days.
