Stainless steel casting, or stainless steel precision casting, is the advanced metalworking process in casting industry. The application is really wide. It can be used for all kinds of stainless steel components with complex shapes. Both the accuracy and surface quality of stainless steel castings are much better than other castings. Stainless steel casting is mostly adapted for complex shapes, high temperature resistance, hard machining components.
Why Stainless Steel for Food Processing Industry?
We all know that the application of stainless steel is quite vast. It can be used in both industry manufacturing and daily life. Food processing machinery is one of the main industies that stainless steel is served for. So why stainless steel is used for food processing industry? What are the advantages?
Easy To Clean: Stainless steel is easy to wipe clean and does not easily breed bacteria. Since it is low maintenance, food workers are able to clean thoroughly and efficiently. This also causes the material to last for much longer than other metals might.
Durable: By nature, steel is one of the most durable metals on the market. Not only is it less prone to physical damage, but it is also resistant to corrosion, as well as wear and tear related to aging. While other metals have to be maintained during use, stainless steel will likely need fewer professional repairs.
Chemical-Resistant: While various stainless steel grades will behave differently, most are generally resistant to chemicals. This means that even the heaviest bleaches and other cleaners can be used on the surface without breaking it down.
Compatible With Heat: This is an especially useful property when working with heavy machinery. Stainless steel is able to withstand high temperatures and pressures without morphing or altering in any other way. It will also hold its shape under these conditions.
Why Investment Casting for Food Processing Industry?
There are more benefits of stainless steel investment casting than other metal working techniques. Although there is a long history of stainless steel investment casting, but many companies specifically use this process for the benefits that are provided. Main benefits are listed below:
Improved quality: Investment casting is typically a precision casting process. So this casting process can creat most precision components for food processing industry.
Reduced machining: Due to the fact that these molds result in what is basically the final product there is much less secondary machining and modifications that need to be done to the metal in order to get it up to the customers specifications after the molding process. This saves money in the long run as it cuts back on the time of the overall manufacturing process.
Customizable Structure: Typically, investment casting is done one part at a time. This gives customers the option to make customized lot sizes of food machinery components. This saves the manufacturing plant significantly more time and resources as they do not have to put working into products that the customer has no real need for.
