Centrifugal casting is ideal for high quality cylindrical components. As the name implies, centrifugal force is employed to exert pressure on the molten metal as it is poured into a spinning mould resulting in a dense part with a fine uniform grain structure. The wall thickness of the part is determined by the amount of poured metal. The centrifugal force presses the molten metal against the inner wall of the mould, densifying the metal and thus reducing shrinkage porosity and gas related defects. The integrity and wear resistance of these structures make them exceptional where there is frictional wear. Centrifugal castings are supplied in a semi or finished machine condition. A variety of moulds are available for speedy pours and deliveries.
