Advantages of Centrifugal Casting

The Advantages of Centrifugal Casting are:

Reduction of Equipment Cost

Centrifugal casting offers a substantial saving on capital equipment when compared to forged products.

Reduction of manufacturing costs

The uniformity resulting from the centrifugal casting process means that machining time and material waste are significantly reduced. Blowholes, sand residue, hard spots, cavities and porosity are virtually eliminated.

Improved product life

Due to finer grain and denser structure with centrifugally cast parts there is an increased usage life, grater endurance and impact without fracturing.

Fewer rejects

The force used to distribute the molten metal as it is poured is so strong it displaces the lighter oxides and impurities to the centre of the hollow cylinder. It is then easy to remove these impurities.

Flexibility

 The centrifugal process allows economical production of a wide range of sizes, shapes and quantities.

GIFA 2019 25th – 29th June

We would like to thank everyone who visited us during our time at GIFA 2019 exhibition in Dusseldorf.  It was fantastic to see such a high turn over of visitors and exhibitors throughout the five days we were there.

The Practice Of Centrifugal Casting

The practice of centrifugal casting involves using a centrifugal force. The force when a body is subject to a high velocity spinning action to exert pressure onto molten metal as it is poured into a die, this method has a number of advantages over traditional static die- casting methods.

Centrifugal force brings about an even distribution of metal and forces gases and other impurities out of the critical section of each casting, resulting in consistent, high quality output with superior physical properties.

By refining the operating techniques and upgrading its programmable machines with a number of innovative features Gibson Centri Tech Limited has improved still further the efficiency and productivity of a well established process.

The other advantages of centrifugal casting are:

  • Reduction of equipment cost

Centrifugal casting offers a substantial saving on capital equipment when compared to forged products

  • Reduction of manufacturing costs

The uniformity resulting from the centrifugal casting process means that machining time and material waste are significantly reduced, Blowholes, sand residue, hard spots, cavities and porosity are virtually eliminated.

  • Extensive life

Due to finer grain and denser structure of parts with centrifugal there is an increased usage life, greater endurance and impact without fracturing

  • Fewer castoffs

The force used to distribute the molten metal as it is poured is so strong it displaces the lighter oxides and impurities to the centre of the hollow cylinder. It is then easy to remove these impurities

  • Flexibility

The centrifugal process allows economical production of wide range of sizes, shapes and quantities.

 

In short centrifugal casting results in longer life, reduced rejects, reduction of manufacturing costs.

Full Technical Support

The Gibson Centri Tech Limited Technical team uses the latest techniques to design your centrifugal casting machines.  Our Engineers solve even the toughest design problems quickly and efficiently using the latest techniques. Our Engineers use the latest AutoCAD 2D and Inventor 3D to complete the designs of every customers centrifugal casting machine before any metal is cut. This allows design reviews to be presented in an easy to understand format, allowing a rapid and inexpensive development process. Our customers can then realistically visualise all component parts prior to machine manufacture, giving them a better understanding of each machines capabilities.
