Thinwall Injection Mould

Thinwall Injection Mould In order to produce the new parts any sorts of machine, Moulding process is utilized. Moulding process helps to generate the strong and worthy parts easily and instantly. Bi-color injection mold is preferred by many companies, as it will produce the component in two colors. The components, which produced in this model, […]

Metal Casting

AQL Acceptable Quality Level. A quality level established on a prearranged system of inspection using samples selected at random. As-cast condition Casting without subsequent heat treatment. Backing sand The bulk of the sand in the flask. The sand compacted on top of the facing sand that covers the pattern. Binder The bonding agent used as an additive to mold […]

Mechanical Properties of Malleable Iron

The different grades of malleable iron are essentially the result of different heat treatments. Just as a medium carbon steel can be heat treated to a wide range in properties so can malleable iron, but malleable is even more versatile. The combined carbon content, on which heat treatment depends, can be adjusted from none, as […]

Mechanical Properties of Cast Carbon and Low Alloy Steels

For the purpose of this article, carbon steels are considered to be those steels in which carbon is the principal alloying element. Other elements that are present and that, in general, are required to be reported are manganese, silicon, phosphorous and sulfur. In a sense, all of these elements are residuals from the raw materials […]

White and High Alloy Irons

An important group of alloyed irons that fall outside of the ordinary types of Alloy Die castings have been designated the white and high alloy irons, or the special irons. The high alloy irons are considered separately because their alloy content exceeds 3% and they cannot be produced by ladle additions to irons of otherwise […]

Cast Copper Alloys

A Primer on Selecting Cast Copper Alloys Traditionally, cast copper alloys were classified by a variety of systems including the ASTM letter-number designation based on nominal composition, by trade names, and by descriptive terms such as “ounce metal,” “Navy M” and so forth. However, with technological developments, new alloys were produced and existing alloys modified, […]

Aluminium Casting

A Basic Guide to Choosing Aluminum Casting Alloys Part 2 Alloys 319.0, A319.0, B319.0 & 320.0 Alloys 319.0 and A319.0 exhibit very good castability, weldability, pressure tightness and moderate strength. They are very stable alloys (i.e., their good casting and mechanical properties are not affected seriously by fluctuations in the impurity content). Alloys B319.0 and […]

Aluminum Casting Alloys

The mechanical properties of alumi- num casting alloys are obtainable only if the chemical and heat treating specifications are followed carefully. It should be noted that the properties obtained from one particular combination of casting alloy, foundry practice and thermal treatment may not necessarily be identical to those achieved with the same alloy in a […]

Mechanical Properties of Compacted Graphite Iron

    Compacted graphite iron is a fairly recent addition to the family of commercially produced aluminum casting irons. Its characteristics are intermediate to those of the gray and ductile irons. As in gray iron, the graphite in CG iron is in the form of interconnected flakes. This facilitates the production of sound castings, especially those […]

Mechanical Properties of Cast Iron

Ductile iron is characterized by having all of its graphite occur in microscopic spheroids. Although this graphite constitutes about 10% by volume of ductile iron, its compact spherical shape minimizes the effect on mechanical properties. The graphite in commercially produced ductile iron is not always in perfect spheres. It can occur in a somewhat irregular […]
