Abstract: Casting industries use different types of materials for making materials of complex shapes. Sand core is one of the cost effective methods for such a process. In order to get a shape a sand core is used. Core is a device used in casting and molding processes to produce materials of different shapes. Sand core is a delicate material which is highly prone to damages when handled manually. The productivity is also less due to the damages of manual handling. This paper discusses about the sand core drilling process used in industries manually and automating those processes using rack and pinion method with relay logic control mechanism.
Keywords: Sand Core, Industries, Drilling Methods.
