Investment Casting for Stainless Steel Flanges

Investment Casting for Stainless Steel Flanges

Stainless steel flange simplified as SS flange, it refers to the flanges that made of stainless steel. Stainless steel flanges are highly resistant to rust, are much stronger and can out perform carbon steel flanges and provide much more corrosion resistance than your aluminum or steel flanges. Stainless steel flanges are generally produced by investment casting or forging process. Investment casting is a lost wax casting process that forms stainless steel flanges by pouring liquid steel water into the cavity…

Stainless Steel Casting for Marine Application

Stainless Steel Casting for Marine Application

Stainless steel casting and aluminum casting are the most commonly adopted metal forming processes today when it comes to the construction of complex metal parts for marine application. While aluminium castings are light, they have limited corrosion resistance in seawater and requires significant maintenance. Stainless steel castings, thus, are recognised as the premium selection for marine applications for the excellent corrosion resistance, lustre, strength and stiffness. Why Stainless Steel for Marine Application? For many marine applications, grade 304 (UNS S30400/S30403)…

316L Stainless Steel Casting

316L Stainless Steel Casting

316L stainless steel is low carbon version of 316 stainless steel. Compared with 316 stainless steel castings, the lower carbon content of 316L stainless steel castings helps improve the weldability as well as corrosion resistance. The added Molybedum in 316L stainless steel castings gives the parts much better pitting resistance than the traditional 304L stainless steel castings. This alloy is one of the most widely used cast stainless steel grades showing up in just about every industry and is often…

What Makes A Good Stainless Steel Casting Supplier?

What Makes A Good Stainless Steel Casting Supplier

Stainless steel investment casting is more precise and can make complex components. This process is used in making different types of stainless steel parts with complex shape, close tolerance and smooth surface. Unlike in sand casting, in investment casting there is a mold which is machined out and the mold is injected with wax where in it produces wax model. It will be followed with a wax assembly together with other waxes from the tree mold. Different sizes can be…

CF3M Stainless Steel Casting

CF3M Stainless Steel Casting

CF3M stainless steel is the equivalent type of 316L stainless steel, which is specially used in investment casting process. It is the low-carbon modification of CF8M. The presence of molybdenum increases the general corrosion resistance and the resistance to pitting by chlorides. CF3M has similar corrosion resistance and mechanical properties to CF8M. The difference is that the tensile yield strength of CF3M is somewhat less than that of CF8M at ambient temperatures. CF3M alloy is limited to a maximum temperature…
