As a casting comes out of its mold it consists of a little more then just the desired part. Additional strands of material known as gates, risers, and runners were incorporated into the original mold to account for variables that come with the casting process. Now that we have our casting the additional material is of no use to us so a sawyer removes it. Everything removed from the casting is collected and brought to our smelter where it is melted down and reused.
