Every sand-molding foundry has distinctive challenges for casting cleaning and sand recovery, but for no-bake foundries there are some specific problems. No-bake molding is adopted for various reasons, including the time and flexibility of the set-up, castings size, and good surface conditions on the finished parts. But, the chemically cured sand is frequently very difficult to break loose from the castings during unmolding.

A South Carolina no-bake foundry had growth plans, b
