Foundry begins with the Chalcolithic age, when the transition from stone mining to metal mining. The same methods are used, although they have developed technologically from the Chalcolithic age to the present. Today, foundry, which is made by modern machines untouched, is still continued with old methods in small enterprises. They almost carry the past to the present.

Metals released as waste from various enterprises are the raw materials of foundries. Molds are carefully prepared by mold masters with sand called mold sand. Heavy metal pieces are placed on the sand in order not to be spoiled by the metal poured into it. Metals melted at 1200 C degrees are carried to the molds by casting workers with special buckets and the molds are filled. The liquid metal that cools inside the molds takes the shape of the metal cast parts of the stoves.
