Stainless Steel Casting Cost Analysis

stainless steel casting cost analysis

Before manufacturing of stainless steel castings, we need to first get agreement on pricing with our customers. Then a order can be confirmed and placed shortly. So, what is the reasonable cost of stainless steel casting? Today, we would like to do cost analysis of stainless steel casting. Normally the cost of stainless steel casting can be split into two sides. One is Tooling Cost, which includes the mold cost of stainless steel casting, and may also include the fixture…

Tips on Buying Stainless Steel Castings from China Supplier

tips on buying stainless steel casting from china

One of the constraints in stainless steel casting often is the fairly high cost than other steel castings. This high cost makes it difficult, or in some cases even impossible, for some companies to compete or justify developing many products utilizing stainless steel castings aesthetics and superior mechanical strengths. However, if companies buy stainless steel casting from China suppliers, they can enjoy great price disaccount, much lower than from local suppliers. So more and more companies from UK, Canada, America,…

Machining of Stainless Steel Castings

machined stainless steel castings

Stainless steel casting is one of the main steel casting types usually produced. In China, silica sol casting is the most precision casting process to produce stainless steel castings. Our silica sol casting method can achieve a general casting tolerance ISO8062(GB/T6414) CT5-CT6. One of the benefits of the casting process is the ability to create complex shapes and internal passageways within the mold that are not possible with machining. But in many cases, casting is not enough for some special…

Types of Casting Process

Casting is an metal manufacturing process generally used for mass production in which materials in a molten state are poured into a mold where they solidify. In this process, complex parts can be manufactured economically and rapidly that otherwise would involve a lot of time if produced by other methods like shaping or cutting. Casting process can be utilized to produce a large variety of parts that are used in different industries. Investment Casting Investment casting is an ancient manufacturing…

Lost Foam Casting for Iron Castings

lost foam casting

The lost foam casting method uses an expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam pattern that is expendable. For each casting that is poured an EPS foam pattern is burned up. The process starts out by creating a foam tool from which foam pieces are made. The casting de-sign can have undercuts, minimal draft, anything that can be placed into the foam tool. Also, the final foam pattern can be made from several pieces of EPS foam that are glued together al-lowing design…

Tips on Designing Investment Castings

tips on desigining investment castings

The design of investment castings is eventually successful on the basis of the communication between the designer and foundry engineers. When part requirements are clearly stated by designers, there is usually a compromise of specifications that will allow for maximum compliance to print specifications and finish part design. When designing a casting it’s important to consider the tolerancing capabilities (both dimensional and geometric) of the investment casting process being used as well as any draft and required minimum radii and…
