CENTRIFUGAL CASTINGS

Centrifugal castings: We can supply pieces manufactured by centrifugal casting in different alloys (bronze, brass, aluminiun, stainless steel, special alloys, etc…

Information about manufacturing process of centrifugal castings:

Centrifugal cast technique that is typically used to cast thin-walled cylinders. It is noted for the high quality of the results attainable, particularly for precise control of their metallurgy and crystal structure. Unlike most other casting techniques, centrifugal casting is chiefly used to manufacture materials in standard sizes for further machining, rather than shaped parts tailored to a particular end-use.

In centrifugal casting, a permanent mold is rotated continuously about its axis at high speeds (300 to 3000 rpm) as the molten metal is poured. The molten metal is centrifugally thrown towards the inside mold wall, where it solidifies after cooling. The casting is usually a fine-grained casting with a very fine-grained outer diameter, owing to chilling against the mould surface. Impurities and inclusions are thrown to the surface of the inside diameter, which can be machined away.

One of the most interesting applications of this manufacturing process is bi-metal tube, consisting of two concentric materials separated and joined together. These tubes can be economically used in many applications.
