Three ways to estimate the casting weight:

  1. According to the parts weight by proposed design, combined with the weight of the machining allowance;

 

2.  Weigh the weight of the mold, and then obtaine the final weight by the following formula;

Casting Weight = Mold Weight*A

A=Casting Material Density / Mold Density

 

3.  List the size of casting and find out the volume, then multiplied by the total volume and the density of alloy castings, namely it is concluded that the weight of the casting
