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.
