CENTRIFUGAL CASTING​

Molten metal is poured into cylindrical molds that are spinning and the metal is forced by centrifugal forces to the ID of the mold. Wall thickness is determined by the amount of metal poured and construction of the mold.

Most castable metal alloys
Used for production of:

  • cylinder liners
  • heavy-walled cylinders
  • rings of various ID/OD sizes
  • Usually requires finish machining
  • Up to 10,000 lbs., equipment dependent
  • No cost to low cost tooling
  • Volume low to high, equipment dependent
  • Limited design to cylinders with or without flanges.
