Core prints are generally provided on the mould for easy removal of cores from the moulding box.

A. True

B. False

I have been asked this question in examination.

My question is based upon Core Application topic in section Core and Core Making of Casting-Forming-Welding I

Correct answer is B. False

For explanation: The core prints are mainly provided on the mould so that the cores are securely positioned in the mould cavity. The design of the core print is made in such a way to take care of the weight of the core while pouring of molten metal; it also ensures that the core is not shifted during the entry of molten metal into the mould cavity.
