|What Is Casting?||Casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process. Casting materials are usually metals or various time setting materials that cure after mixing two or more components together: examples are epoxy, concrete, plaster and clay. Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods.|
|Casting Parts Advantages & Benefits||1. Wide suitability |
The metal casting process is almost free from the restrictions of the size, thickness and shape of castings, casting wall thickness can be up to 0.3-1000mm, the length varies from a few millimeters to ten meters, and the quality can be from a few grams to more than 300t..
2. Available materials
The materials used in metal castings are widely existed. Almost any material can be melted into the liquid alloy can be used for casting, such as steel, a variety of aluminum alloy, copper alloy, iron alloy, platinum alloy castings and so on..
3. Metal castings have a certain accuracy of size
Under normal circumstances, metal castings have more precise forming size than ordinary forgings and welding parts.
4. Low cost
Overall economic performance, energy, material consumption of casting are less than other metal forming methods.
Metal castings are up to 40% to 80% of quality in general machinery, while the manufacturing cost is only 25% to 30% of the total cost of the machine.
