High Precision Casting Production Flexibility

- Nov 01, 2017 -


Precision casting, also known as investment casting, has the following characteristics compared with other casting methods and parts forming methods:

1. High precision castings, fine surface roughness, the size of castings can reach 4-6, the surface roughness can be up to 0.4-3.2μm, can greatly reduce the processing allowance of castings, Precision Casting and can achieve no amount of manufacturing, reduce production costs.

2, can cast complex shape, and difficult to use other methods of processing castings, the size of the castings to a few millimeters large to thousands of millimeters, the wall thickness of the thinnest 0.5mm, the smallest hole is below 1.0mm.

3, the alloy material is unrestricted: such as carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, copper alloy, aluminum alloy and high-temperature alloy, titanium alloy and precious metal materials can be produced by casting, for difficult to forge, welding and cutting of the alloy materials, Precision Casting is particularly suitable for casting method production.

4, high flexibility in production, adaptable. It can be used in mass production as well as in small batches and even in single pieces.

To sum up, precision casting has the advantages of small investment scale, large production capacity, low cost, complex product process simplification and quick investment. Precision Casting Thus in the competition with other processes and modes of production in a favorable position.

Precision casting is used in almost all industrial sectors, in particular, aerospace, aviation, shipbuilding, steam turbines and gas turbines, weapons, electronics, petroleum, chemical, nuclear power, transportation, light industry, textiles, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, instrumentation, machinery, pumps and valves, sports equipment, household appliances, in recent years, a large number of tableware, tools, watches industry, Precision Casting Jewelry and small hardware, etc.

The advantages of precision casting:

1. The scope of adaptation is wide, not limited by the size, thickness and complexity of the shape of the castings. Flexible mode of production

2. Can be used in a wide range of materials, Precision Casting can be used in a large number of scrap metal and renewable resources, and forging compared to the power consumption of small.

3. Castings have a certain size precision, small processing allowance, Precision Casting saving working hours and metal materials

4. Low cost, good overall economic performance, energy, material consumption and lower cost
