At Montclair Bronze, we get casting projects of all shapes and sizes. However, it’s not always the dimensions of the job that decide which methods we use. If anything, this most often has to do with the project’s alloy(s), and more often, the particular purpose or application that the product is made for.
This is one reason why a good foundry will use a very different casting method for an artistically designed bronze sculpture, as opposed to, say, an industrially developed part. Here are two of the most common types of foundry casting methods that we use here at Montclair Bronze -and why it matters for the manufacturing your particular project.
