To solve the power crisis, we are having two options. Either we can increase the production or reduce the wastage. Instead of increasing the power production, it is better to reduce unnecessary consumption. Augmentation of production capabilities is a costlier option. But reducing wastage is wiser, more viable, and practical and zero investment way to achieve energy security. This reduction in consumption is achieved by minimizing the wastages and through proper usage. The above said problem was solved by our project with a low cost. The development of unbounded casting process improves flexibility and enhances mould ability. The concept of unbounded casting is to change the kind of binder or to avoid substantial binder. Magnetic molding is a type of unbounded molding process in which a dry and free flowing magnetic steel shots or granules are used as mould materials. The pattern for the required job is made of using expendable polystyrene materials. An electromagnetic field is created using electro magnets and this magnetic field is used as the binding force. In this paper, the design and fabrication issues of Magnetic Moulds are explained.
