Centrifugal casting, Advantages, disadvantages and applications.

Centrifugal casting: The centrifugal casting is one of the main casting process and little different type of method used to manufacture a product by creating a centrifugal force, This type of force is obtained by a rotating the casting product on a table with high speed. centrifugal force plays an important role to obtain a hallow, cylindrical shapes with clear and accurate dimensions.
In this process, the revolving table creates a centrifugal force and with the help of this force the molten material used to spread over the required shape of the pattern present in it.

In centrifugal casting operation, casting is done by creating a centrifugal force. the required force is obtained by rotating the mold with high speed at its axis. the rotation of mold is done in a vertical/horizontal direction when this mold made to rotate the molten metal is poured into a mold, this molten metal used to spread on the surface of the cavity, this molten metal spreads over a required with the help of centrifugal force created by the rotation of the mold.

*) The object obtained has no cores in hallow shapes.
*) Centrifugal casting eliminates the impurities in molten metal.
*) This type of products has high density.
*) This manufacturing method increases the mechanical strength.

*) Product obtained from this casting process required additional finishing.
*) This method of casting is not so useful for different types of alloys.
*) High accuracy cannot be obtained.

This type of casting is highly useful in making pipes, rollers, liners, flywheels etc.
