The Adaptability Of Precision Casting Is Wide

- Oct 11, 2017 -

Precision casting is the world leader in foundry industry, as the foundry industry in the high and new field of representatives, precision casting must play its exemplary role and lead role, but the precision casting to play these two functions of the premise is strong itself, so China's precision casting should be prioritized development, development needs the established policy and development goals.

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, Precision Casting 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, and can achieve no amount of manufacturing, reduce production costs.

2, can cast complex shape, and difficult to use other methods of processing castings, Precision Casting the size of the castings to a few millimeters large to thousands of millimeters, Precision Casting 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. Thus in the competition with other processes and modes of production in a favorable position.

The advantages of precision casting:

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

2. Can be used in a wide range of materials, 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
