Centrifugal Castings and Centrifugal Casting Machines

Did you know that centrifugal casting results in a superior casting with improved mechanical properties and purer structure when compared to static casting?

Centrifugal casting also:

Requires no in-gates or feeder heads

Comparable to forged castings in terms of mechanical properties and micro structure

Substantial savings on capital equipment

The centrifugal casting process is not limited to a specific type as most metals are castable and bi-metal castings are possible.

GML Range of Centrifugal Casting Machines

Tags : 

We have one of the GML range of centrifugal casting machines currently entering it’s final test phase, here at our premises. Very soon this machine will be shipped to one of our customers in China.

The GML range of centrifugal casting machines are used by leading companies world-wide including; rolling mill, power generation and tanker stern tubes. These machines are specifically designed to safely and economically cast white metal (Babbitt) into ferrous and non-ferrous housings in the form of bushes, bearings, half shells and shaped shells.

White metal lining shells by the centrifugal method, increases profit potential considerably, at the same time producing high quality surface bonding. Through put in your plant could be considerably increased with failure virtually eliminated.

What G Force do we use for Centrifugal Casting and how fast do we cast?

Tags : 

G Force required is dependent on material being cast and the size of the casting, typical G Force range 15 – 120g.

Speeds of up to 3000rpm are used to achieve the desired G Force. The process involves using a centrifugal force (high velocity spinning action) to exert pressure onto molten metal as its poured into a Die. The Die can be set to spinning in a Horizontal or Vertical axis dependent on the structure required.

Durville “Tilt Casting” Machine

Tags : 

Dross forming alloys require pouring techniques that minimise turbulence. The Durville process reduces mould entry turbulence  and is particularly useful for producing high integrity  ingots for onward forging or special casting in a variety of alloys such as high nickel, non- ferrous, aluminium and bronze.

These machines are available in four standard sizes and are constructed from tubular, heavy fabrications, machined where appropriate for bearing and propriety part location. The drive system is guarded for safety purposes by sheet steel enclosures.

A variable speed drive unit is connected to a revolving/tilting table by means of a high torque chain system. The turning  speed is controlled by a solid state invertor unit and is infinitely variable within the speed range to give accurate control of the tilting speed. The machines, depending upon customer requirements, can be mobile or static, with the larger units having remote controls.
