Carousel Range of Centrifugal Casting Machines

Tags : 

One of our high profile Horizontal Centrifugal Casting Machines is the Carousel (Multi-head) Machine. The Carousel Machine range is designed and manufactured to meet the production requirements of medium and large OEM producers of cylinder liners. These machines can produce single liners or multiple lengths depending on size and type. Profiled diesel liners are usually produced in single pieces. Smaller automotive low profile wet or “cast in” block, these liners can be cast in lengths of four depending on the size. The Carousel Centrifugal Casting Machine offer a highly versatile alternative to conventional tube type machines.

The machines are fully automated and can employ either wet or dry coating methods. One of the key elements of the carousel machine is the consistent production the critical points are monitored and controlled throughout the production process. These include pouring temperature and die temperature. The latest control and instrumentation technology are incorporated into the equipment.

Production rates are dependent on wall thickness of the casting. Typically, a six head unit can consistently cycle at 45 seconds producing four cylinder liners per casting, giving an hourly production rate of 320 liners.

Several versions of this centrifugal casting machine are available to suit the production, budgetary requirements and size or type of castings being produced. Six, eight, ten or twelve head models are available with various options, subject to the customers requirements. The reliability of these machines has been proven in the field. In the last five years the company has had repeatable orders from customers in India and the USA, who have purchased various versions of this machine range for their facilities.

This simple to operate but robust design provides greater reliability without undue sophistication.

Why Choose Centrifugal Casting?

Tags : 

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 the 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 it’s 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.

 

 

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 the 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 hallow 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.

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