Defects-less casting is the main consideration in mechanizing a foundry.

A. True

B. False

I got this question in a job interview.

I’m obligated to ask this question of Mechanization topic in portion Foundry Mechanizations of Casting-Forming-Welding I

Right answer is B. False

The explanation is: The first main consideration in mechanizing a foundry is the investment that must yield a profit. Not only the cost of castings should be reduced, but the additional return on the investment should be enough to fulfill all the demand of an organization. And properties of casting are considered as secondary in mechanization.
