Hardwear for Sand Cores
For Sand Mould and Core Production & Assembly
Perforated Studs/ Chaplets
Perforated studs stay fixed in place long enough to hold a core but also have a faster melting rate so they can often be place in machined areas on castings or used in pressure tested castings.
Single Studs/ Chaplets have multiple uses to support cores and moulds when casting iron and steel. They are available in hundreds of shapes and sizes. Contact Us for more information.
Pin Studs are predominantly for greensand mould applications. The pin is pressed into the Greensand mould surface and secured in place for the core to be placed in position.
Plated Studs/ Chaplets
Plated, Single, Double or even Triple Layer Studs for heavy cores and moulds are all available from John Winter. There are hundreds of variations. Contact Us for more info.
Sprigs/ Brads/ Core Nails....whatever you call them, we have them. We have multiple sizes in stock. Contact Us for more information.
Perforated Steel Filters
Perforated Steel filters are cost effective filters for casting aluminium. They prevent some dross from entering the casting and help to regulated the metal flow into the mould. Also available are steel blanks.
Steel Core Wire
Annealed Core wire is malleable so it can be easily bent into complex shapes to fit inside narrow coreboxes and also placed inside deep 'pockets' on patterns to help moulds 'strip' successfully.
Available in bundles and in various diameters.
Steel Wire Pins are excellent for strengthening thin cores where sand strength alone will not prevent a core from breaking during casting.
Available in various lengths from 2'' up to 8''.
Nylon Core Vent
Sand Core Venting
Nylon core vent is excellent at removing gases that can become trapped within cores and moulds and produce scrap castings.
Available in 50m coils and various diameters from 4mm to 16mm. Typically in stock ready for next day delivery.
