Why Casting for Wear Parts?

In CFS foundry, about half of the investment castings are wear parts. We call this type of products “wear parts”, as they have the same features: high hardness, good wear resistance and corrosion resistance. Below we will introduce the wear parts we have made in detail:

Agricultural Wear Parts

In agricultural machinery, good wear resistance is required for components that will directly touch the ground. If the part is not wearable, the working life will be quite short, and has to be replaced by another new one. CFS foundry has good manufacturing experience in making agricultural wear parts. Each year, we export large amounts of agricultural wear parts to our overseas customers. Our obvious advantage is that our factory has a separate brazing production line, so we can offer finished agricultural wear parts with tungsten tiled.

Construction wear parts are the components used for all kinds of contruction equipments, such as excavator, loader, ect. So some of our customers will contact us for bucket teeth, cutting edges, undercarriage and some other wear items for their Construction equipments.

Selecting CFS foundry as your partner to fulfill your bucket teeth and all the wear Items requirements will prove to be a significant cost-saving relationship. Our advanced casting technology and quality assurance program are responsible for our high customer satisfaction rating. You can save time and money as a result of our commitment to keep raising the bar. If you are interested in increasing quality at very competitive prices, let us know so I can learn more about your company unique requirements. Our products, services and support can help your company acquire new business through cost reduction.

Typical construction & Forestry wear parts are: bucket teeth & adapters, cutting edges, ripper point, bucket hook, mulcher teeth, dredging cutter teeth.

Mining Wear Parts

CFS provides investment casting components for surface and underground mining equipment including shovels, drills and large vehicles used to haul materials for processing, as well as cast components used in conveyor systems. We develop unique materials and an unparalleled line of wear resistant products specifically for mining applications where there is high sliding abrasion.

Our engineering team designs custom solutions specifically to address your critical high-abrasion wear areas. With an in-house pattern shop we can quickly provide first run products for trial, and production quantities to meet your processing needs.

How to Improve the Wear Resistance of Wear Parts?

After casting, even if using wear-resistant material, the hardness is still a bit low to reach good effect. So normally after casting, heat treatment will be performed to improve the hardness of wear parts. Most widely used heat treatment method for such wear parts is tempering and hardening, whose cost is relatively economical. We can achieve a hardness 48-52HRC, but such high hardness wil be very difficult for further machining. So if there is any machining operations, we will suggest to do machining before hear treatment. But the surface will be a bit dark or black.

Why Casting for Wear Parts?

1) High metal utilization–Metal utilization of investment castings is about three times than that of forgings.

2) High size accuracy–Investment Casting can achieve good tolerance grade as precise as CT5-CT6, which will greatly reduce machining allowance and save machining cost. Sometime the
products can be used directly after shot blasting, and no machining is required!

3) Investment Casting could be used to cast both ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. So no matter what kind of material grade of the wear parts, investment casting is all feasible.

4) Even if the structure of wear parts is complex, our investment casting process is workable.

5) The most important factor is that, with investment casting method, both small volume and large volume production are all available for production.

Specilist for Manufacturing Wear Parts

CFS foundry is the specilist in manufacturing such wear parts for all industries. We manufacture to customers own drawings and have assisted in the creation of many new and innovative products which have helped improve the productivity of many of our customers and exceeded expectation in terms of lifespan, durability and reliability. We specialise in both high and low volume production and take pride in our ability to meet exacting customer standards and deadlines.

On time delivery of orders and excellence in service and quality are uppermost in our company policy and our mission is to deliver consistent outstanding value and performance. Please feel free to contact us with an enquiry once you are interested to purchase wear parts from our company.
