Sand, combined with a suitable binder can be packed tightly about a pattern. When the pattern is removed, a cavity that retains the shape of the part remains.

Sand casting is one of the most popular and simplest types of casting that has been used for centuries. The sand casting process involves the use of a furnace, metal, pattern, and sand mould. A sand mould pattern of the desired shape is first made. The molten metal from the furnace is ladled and poured into the cavity of this sand mould, and then allowed to cool. The solidified casting is then removed for further processing. The sand casting process is used to produce a wide variety of metal components (mostly iron, but can also include aluminium, bronze and brass) with complex geometries. The process is used to produce a wide variety of machined components - from engine blocks, gears, pulleys, and crankshafts to large housings and machine foundations. Sand casting allows for smaller batches to be made compared to permanent mould castings at a very reasonable cost. This allows manufacturers to create products at a low cost and permits small size operations. Since sand is available easily in India, the country is a leading manufacturer of sand castings in the world. Another reason why sand casting foundries in India are popular is because of the superior skill of workmanship vis à vis the manufacturing cost.

Sand casting process is used to produce ductile iron castings and grey iron casting.
