Cast Steel vs. Cast Iron

cast iron

When designing a new metal component by casting, the designer or user may doubt if cast steel or cast iron should be more ideal for its application. Frankly speaking, both cast steel and cast iron have their own advantages and disadvantages. We can only select the right material according to its properties and the working environment of the casting part. To help our customers to tell the differences of these two kinds of different materials better, below we will introduce…

Glass Bead Blasting for Stainless Steel Castings

Glass bead blasting is one of the widely used surface blasting processes for smoothing, shaping and cleaning the surface of stainless steel castings. Glass bead is one of a variety of medias that we can do sand blasting with. Some buyers may mix this type of sand casting method, so below we will introduce this surface treatment in detail. Bead blasting is the process of removing surface deposits by applying fine glass beads at a high pressure without damaging the…

17-4 PH Stainless Steel Casting

17-4 PH Stainless Steel Casting

17-4 PH Stainless Steel (SAE type 630 stainless steel), is the martensitic precipitation-hardened stainless steel casting grade. Typical usage of 17-4 stainless steel castings is where high strength and a modest level of corrosion resistance is required. Strength and toughness desired can be manipulated by temperate range in the heat treatment process. Best Stainless offers high quality standards including: UNS S17400, AMS 5643, ASTM A564, and ASTM A693 Grade 630. Chemical Composition 17-4 PH Stainless Steel C Si Mn P…

Stainless Steel Casting Types and Grades

stainless steel casting grades

What is Stainless Steel Casting? Stainless steel casting is the special steel casting type used primarily because of their corrosion resistance. All stainless steels casting grades contain a minimum percentage of 10.5% chromium. Chromium is always the deciding factor, although other elements, particularly nickel and molybdenum, are added to improve corrosion resistance of stainless steel casting components. The success of the material is based on the fact that it has one unique advantage. The chromium in the stainless steel has…

What may Affect the Dimensions of Stainless Steel Castings?

stainless steel casting bracket

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,…
