What may Affect the Dimensions of Stainless Steel Castings?

The method of the investment casting allows producing complex shaped stainless steel castings with small dimensional tolerances and excellent surface quality. The big advantage is the production of stainless steel castings from materials will probably avoid further machining operation. Using a different technology would result in high costs, or their production would be impossible. In comparison with machining, the dimensional accuracy of stainless steel castings produced by investment casting cannot be compared, even though when compared with other methods of casting…

What Affects the Surface Roughness of Stainless Steel Castings?

When completing stainless steel casting process, we may found that the surface of some stainless steel castings are smooth, but some look a bit rough. So what caused the difference? Here we would like to analysize the reasons that may affect the surface roughness of stainless steel castings. 1. Surface Quality of Stainless Steel The stainless steel is made of columnar crystal structure mesh, and the refractory materials, additives and water are filled in the middle, so that there are…

Stainless Steel Casting Process

Stainless steels, because of their resistance to corrosion, are often used in highly aggressive conditions, which will cause most alternative materials to fail rapidly. Casting of stainless steel is a method of manufacturing complex shapes of stainless steel components that are not easily or cost effectively fabricated or forged. Stainless steel casting involves heating the stainless steel material to above its melting point and introducing the material into a mould where it solidifies into the required shape. In this article,…

Stainless Steel Foundry

stainless steel foundry

Stainless Steel Foundry is the professional manufacturing foundry for stainless steel castings. Maybe you will ask why stainless steel is so popular in casting process? What are the advantages of such material? Corrosion resistance: All stainless steels have a high resistance to corrosion. Low alloyed grades resist corrosion in atmospheric conditions; highly alloyed grades can resist corrosion in most acids, alkaline solutions, and chloride bearing environments, even at elevated temperatures and pressures. High and low temperature resistance: Some grades will…

Aluminum Investment Casting

aluminum investment casting

What is Aluminum? Aluminium or aluminum is a chemical element with symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery-white, soft, nonmagnetic and ductile metal in the boron group. Light, durable and functional: these are the qualities that make aluminium one of the key engineering materials for various applications. We can find aluminium in the homes we live in, in the automobiles we drive, in the trains and aeroplanes that take us across long distances, in themobile phones and…

Investment Casting Service for Australia

investment casting process

What is Investment Casting? Investment casting, often referred to as precision casting or lost wax casting, uses pouring process to achieve complex forms by an expendable-mold. It is the casting technique that can achieve exceptional accuracy for products both small and large, in a wide range of materials. To create a tree assembly, a wax pattern is dipped into ceramic material. Once the ceramic dries, it is placed in a kiln which hardens the ceramic and causes the wax center…

Solution Treatment of Stainless Steel Castings

solution treatment of stainless steel casting

Solution Treatment is the common heat treatment method for stainless steel castings. Solution treatment refers to the heat treatment process that heating stainless steel castings to a high temperature and keeping constant temperature, so that the excess phase is fully dissolved into the solid solution. Solution treatment aims to get uniform supersaturated solid solution by dissolving the carbide and γ phase in stainless steel castings, help to redissolve out fine and uniform distributed carbide and γ phase when aging, while…

Stainless Steel Casting for Bathroom & Toilet Fittings

stainless steel casting for bathroom and toilet fittings

A bathroom is a room in the home or hotel for personal hygiene activities, generally containing a sink (basin) and either a bathtub, shower, or both. In most countries, the toilet is included in this room, for ease of plumbing, whereas other cultures consider this insanitary, and give that fixture a room of its own. In the bathroom, lots of stainless steel fittings are assembled for washing or decorating purpose. Due to the large demands of bathroom and toilet fittings,…
