Advantages and Disadvantages of Centrifugal Casting Process

Apr 05,2016

Casting is an object made by pouring molten metal or other material into a mold. Centrifugal casting is a process that delivers castings of very high material soundness, and thus is the technology of choice for applications like jet engine compressor cases, petrochemical furnace tubes, many military products, and other high-reliability applications. Centrifugal Casting is used for making cylindrical, hollow shapes such as tanks, pipes and poles. Chopped strand mat is placed into a hollow, cylindrical mold, or continuous roving is chopped and directed onto the inside walls of the mold. Resin is applied to the inside of the rotating mold.

What are the benefits of centrifugal casting? Here are the advantages of centrifugal casting we select for you.

1. Relatively very light impurities moveinwards towards center. So they can beremoved easily thus helping inproducing sound castings.

2. Gates and risers are not needed.

3. This technique is best suited for themass production of symmetricalobjects and Castings yield is very high in somecases it is even equal to 100%.

4. Castings acquire high density, high mechanical strength and fine grained structure.

5. Inclusions and impurities are lighter.

6. These castings have a directional solidification starting from outside to inside.

Disadvantages Centrifugal casting process:

1. Skilled labors are to be employed for this process.

2. An inaccurate diameter of the inner surface of the casting.

3. Only some shapes can be generated by this casting process.

4. Not all alloys can be cast in this way. 

5. Centrifugal castings require very high investments.
