Title: CASTING OF BRAKE DRUM USING GREEN SAND MOULDING SYSTEM
Authors: OLAJIDE NASIR, OLAYINKA
Issue Date: 24-Jul-2013
Abstract: Nigeria is blessed with a lot of metallic mineral resources which can be used by the foundry industries to meet the local needs of the country. It is a pity that foundries are yet to better enhance metal manufacture into shape and sizes required to aid domestic and even automobile industries. This is due to the fact good knowledge of pattern and core box making is still needed for moulds and cares preparation for casting operations. Thus the project therefore, presents a detail knowledge of patterns making and moulding techniques (Green sand) using scrap cast iron materials as the metallic material for the project considerations. The product used for the project work is wood which can be obtained locally and cheaply_ This project is therefore a report of a design whose level of technology is adequately low, as to be within the technical capability of a local foundry workshop_
