Centrifugal Casting

Published:
2008

Abstract

This article describes the applications, advantages, and disadvantages of three centrifugal casting processes as well as the equipment used. The processes include true centrifugal casting (horizontal, vertical, or inclined) semicentrifugal (centrifugal mold) casting, and centrifuge mold (centrifugal die) casting. The article discusses the cooling, inoculation, fluxing, and extraction of casting. It reviews mold heating and coating techniques as well as various molds used for the centrifugal casting processes. The three most common defects observed in centrifugal castings are also discussed. The article concludes with information on the applications of centrifugal force in investment casting and combustion synthesis.

Abstract

Horizontal centrifugal casting is used to cast parts having an axis of revolution. This article discusses the operations of various horizontal casting machines, such as flanged shaft machine, horizontal roller-type machine, and double-face plate machine. It describes the types of molds, such as expendable molds and permanent molds, used for centrifugal casting. The article also discusses the steps in casting process, namely, pouring, solidification, and babbitting. It provides information on the applications of the horizontal centrifugal casting.
