Casting is the process of pouring liquid material, such as molten metal, into the cavity of a specifically designed mold and allowing it to solidify. The workpiece is removed from the mold after solidification to undergo different finishing processes or to be used as a finished product. Casting processes are generally utilized to create complicated solid and hollow structures, and cast goods may be found in a variety of industries such as automobile components, aerospace parts, and so on.

Despite casting as one of the oldest known manufacturing processes, recent improvements in casting technology have resulted in a wide range of specialized casting methods. Die-casting, investment casting, plaster casting, and sand casting are all hot forming techniques that offer distinct industrial advantages. Comparing the benefits and drawbacks of the various types of casting processes might assist in determining which method is best suited for a specific production run.
