Vertical centrifugal casting machines, installed below the ground level for maximum operator safety, are used for producing bushings and castings that are relatively large in diameter and short in length. This article discusses the mold design for different types of sand molds and permanent molds and their production considerations. It describes the speed of rotation, mold speeds curves, and pouring techniques that are considered in the operation of vertical centrifugal casting machines.
