 The Origin of Metal Castings

 

According to biblical records, Casting technology reaches back almost 5,500 years BC.  Gold, pure in nature, most likely caught Prehistoric man’s fancy…as he probably hammered gold ornaments out of the gold nuggets he found.  Silver would have been treated similarly.  Mankind next found copper, because it appeared in the ash of his camp fires from copper-bearing ore that he lined his fire pits with. Man soon found that copper was harder than gold or silver.  Copper did not bend up when used.  So copper, found a ‘nitch’ in man’s early tools, and then marched it’s way into Weaponry.  But, long, long before all this…man found clay.  He used clay and made pottery, now he had something to eat from.

 

Time passed ...

 

Then Man thought, "now…what else can I do with this clay mud stuff …".  Early man thought about it, "I’ll use this pottery stuff, ( the first patterns ),  to shape my metal into bowls ".  Man had discovered the Casting Industry.

 

 

Castings History

 

A casting, is the essential foundation of civilization. With it, man unlocked his future, placing him on the path toward conquering his environment.  History tells us this happened in Mesopotamia, today's modern Iraq.  The oldest casting in existence today is believed to be a frog, cast in copper.  The frog’s complexity indicates that it was preceded by other simpler casting efforts. Things went slow back then. Tin, came around in the 16th Century,  but man used earth's ores for 4500 years prior.  The Chinese get the nod for iron castings around 1000 BC. India made steel about 500 BC. Civilization in general, was casting brass by then, ( brass = copper / plus zinc ) , which was many centuries before the Christian era.  All along this path all the techniques for …" CASTING AND MOLDING PROCESSES " … were being discovered, and recorded into history.  All of these processes would be pictured forever in time through the labors of early man.
