This article discusses the operations of three types of horizontal casting machine: the flanged shaft machine, the horizontal roller-type machine, and the double-face plate machine. It provides information on expendable and permanent molds used for centrifugal casting. The parameters and operations of the horizontal centrifugal casting process, including pouring and solidification, as well as the applications are described.
