What is centrifugal casting?

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, greater 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.

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
