Many of the engineering properties of steel can be realized with Ductile Iron Casting. It has the ability to be cast in heavier sections and can be used to produce larger castings than malleable iron. Ductile Iron Casting has replaced forgings, weldments and steel castings in an ever increasing number of applications.
Ductile Iron Casting is particularly well suited for:
Pump - Gears and Rollers
Threadless Connectors and Flanges
Various Automotive and Agricultural Items.
Molten metal is injected, under pressure, into hardened steel dies, often water cooled. Dies are opened, and castings are ejected.
Aluminum, Zinc, Magnesium, and limited Brass.stainless steel.
Not normally over 2 feet square. Some foundries capable of larger sizes.
Al and Mg ± .002"/in.
Zinc ± .0015"/in.
Brass ± .005"/in.
Add ± .001" to ± .015" across parting line depending on size.
Minimum Draft Requirements:
Al & Mg: 1° to 3°
Zinc: 1/2° to 2°
Brass: 2° to 5°
Normal Minimum Section Thickness:
Al: .03" Small Parts: .06" Medium Parts
Mg: .03" Small Parts: .045" Medium Parts
Zinc: .025" Small Parts: .040" Medium Parts
Usually 2,500 and up.
Normal Lead Time:
Samples: 12-20 weeks.
4-8 weeks A.S.A.
