Centrifugal CastingMolten Metal
Parts produced by centrifugal castings are dense, sound and have a fine grain structure in comparison to static and investment cast parts.
In this method of casting, a centrifugal force is exerted on the molten metal while it is poured into a cylindrical mold spinning on its axis. Chill crystals form uniformly at the mold-metal interface. Solidification continues pushing oxides, impurities and gases towards the core that is later bored out, leaving behind a dense casting. Weartech produces many components out of centrifugal castings to meet Navy Nuclear and Mil-spec requirements and applications. Weartech produces both horizontal and vertical centrifugal castings in a variety of sizes, including special step mold configurations.
