In general sense, a casting is produced when molten metal is poured into a mould and left to cool and solidify. The other name given to a casting is 'Founding'. In casting process, metal/ alloy component parts of desired shapes are produced by pouring the molten metal/alloy into a prepared mould (of that shape) and then allowing the molten metal/alloy to cool and solidify. This solidified piece of metal/alloy is known as a casting.
