We at Essen Aluminium manufacture Centrifugal casting by using the vertical and horizontal axis. Its purpose is to obtain by centrifugal force a denser casting and consequently a casting ty.
The tin bronzes, as for chill casting, are suitable for centrifugal casting and, in addition, the high tensile brasses and aluminum bronzes may be centrifugally cast. This process is, of course, generally used on the larger castings and was originally introduced for the production of gears, worm wheels and cored bars.
Mechanical properties which result from this process are excellent, generally similar to those obtainable in chill casting along with porous free and high density structure.
