Metal Centrifugal Casting is fundamentally different from nearly every other casting process currently employed worldwide. Other methods introduce and slowly solidify molten materials under static conditions, that is, one force of gravity. Using the centrifugal force in a dynamic, spinning mold cavity, metal is introduced into the mold under great force and pressure approaching 50 g’s.
Because of this pressure, dross and other contaminants are displaced to the inside of the castings and are later removed. Desirable and dense metal remains. Also, rapid solidification occurs in a predictable outside to inside direction resulting in a dense and defect free casting.
The Centrifugal Casting process is your best assurance of a high strength, defect free and refined metal component ready for use, or further machining and testing.
Techni-Cast is capable of rough, or semi-finish machining our products. We have a variety of saddle turret and vertical turret lathes, as well as additional turning, milling and drilling machinery that are suited to fast stock removal. Casting integrity can be determined at the foundry to prevent lost time and transportation costs. Also, shipped weight can be reduced substantially through this pre-machining operation.
We also maintain equipment to finish machine your components complete to drawings. Numerically controlled lathes and mills allow for cost efficient finishing. This capability is completed by our state of the art inspection program utilizing precision CM machines and direct reporting system.
