Process: Ceramic Molding System
Advantages of Ceramic Molding The main advantages of ceramic molds are: a reusable pattern (the item used to create the shape of the mold) excellent surface finish close dimensional tolerances thin cross-sections and intricate shapes can be cast. For undercuts and other difficult to cast features part of the pattern can be made from wax in conjunction with a standard pattern; essentially using investment and ceramic mold casting techniques together. The main disadvantages are: it is only cost effective for small- to medium-sized production runs and the ceramic is not reusable. Ferrous and high-temperature non-ferrous are most commonly cast with these processes; other materials cast include: aluminum copper magnesium titanium and zinc alloys.

Cundi: About Cundi
While Cundī is less well known in Tibetan Buddhism she is revered in TÃ¡ngmÃ¬ or East Asian esoteric Buddhism. In China she is known as ZhǔntÃ PÃºsÃ (Chinese: 準提菩薩 "Cundi Bodhisattva") or ZhǔntÃ FÃ³mǔ (Chinese: 準提佛母 "Cundi Buddha-Mother") "Junje" in Korean while in Japan she is known as Jundei Kannon (准胝観音 Cundi Avalokiteśvara).
In late imperial China the early traditions of Tangmi were still thriving in Buddhist communities. Robert Gimello has also observed that in these communities the esoteric practices of Cundī were extremely popular among both the populace and the elite.Iconography Cundī is depicted with eighteen arms each wielding implements that symbolize upaya. Her eighteen arms also represent the eighteen merits of attaining Buddhahood as described in an appendix to the Cundī Dhāraṇī Sūtra.
