Turbo Elbow Adapter Flange is one of the main components used in turbocharger. Such turbo elbow adapter flange is produced by stainless steel casting and machining. As the professional stainless steel casting supplier, CFS Foundry can cast and machine stainless steel turbo elbow adapter flange in different alloys and specifications.
Casting Method: Stainless Steel Investment Casting
Stainless steel investment casting is the ideal casting method to produce turbo elbow adapter flange, most widely used cast alloy is 304 stainless steel. With investment casting, our customer can order stainless steel turbo elbow adapter flange in any dimensions they want. Main steps of stainless steel investment cast turbo elbow adapter flange include:
- The process uses metal moulds to produce expendable wax based patterns of the turbo elbow adapter flange to be cast.
- The patterns are mounted and coated with a ceramic material by building up layers of sand and liquid binder until a suitable shell is formed.
- The wax is removed from the shell using high pressure steam.
- The shell is fired in a furnace to 1000°C resulting in a precision mould into which the molten metal can be poured.
- After cooling, the mould is broken open and cast turbo elbow adapter flange is removed and is then finished.
Benefits of Stainless Steel Casting Process
- Smooth Surface Finish: Stainless steel casting uses a ceramic mold that can produce a much smoother finish for turbo elbow adapter flange , typically averaging Ra6.3 surface finish as cast.
- Faster Production: Stainless steel castings cut down on labor time and produce quicker lead times because it greatly reduces the amount of machining required after casting.
- Affordable Tooling: Stainless steel casting requires less expensive equipment and is inherently less dangerous, which allows for costs of turbo elbow adapter flange to remain low.
- Vast Size Range: Stainless steel casting allows for the production of turbo elbow adapter flanges in different sizes.
Tips on Stainless Steel Casting for Turbo Elbow Adapter Flange
- To protect the design from leaking, ask the supplier to sign NDA document before sending the drawing.
- Besides CAD drawing, it is better to provide 3D file as well, that will help to check each dimensions in detail, and calculate the price more exactly.
- Confirm the lead time with the potential supplier if this is an urgent order.
- If the stainless steel casting company has machining capabilty as well, it is better to order cast and machined stainless steel turbo elbow adapter flange, which can save much cost, also the quality is guaranteed.
