Centrifugal Casting at Spuncast
Centrifugal casting is a metal casting process that produces a very high quality product. Spin casting fills any shrinkage voids under high pressure from centrifugal force. Slag, dirt and drops, being of lower densities than the metals, spin to the core or center. The results are:
- Very Clean
- Very Dense
- Very Uniform
Spuncast’s Centrifugal Casting Process
Centrifugal Casting has been around a long time… but it’s a very unique process. Starting with a rotating die, liquid metal is introduced into the die. Because the die is rotating, the g-forces drive the liquid metal against the die walls, which simultaneously begins to freeze the castings from the outside in. The finished casting is:
- Completely Uniform – 360 degrees
- Extemely Consistent throughout
Once the casting is complete, the tubes are machined to remove impurities that have spun to the center during the casting process. Our full-service, captive machining operation offers both rough and tight tolerance finish machining.
