Product Description

Alloy Steel Castings

Alloy Steel Silica Sol Investment Auto Casting is steel that is alloyed with a variety of elements in total amounts between 1.0% and 50% by weight to improve its mechanical properties. Alloy steels are broken down into two groups: low-alloy steels and high-alloy steels. Most commonly, the phrase “alloy steel” refers to low-alloy steels.

Common Alloyants In Alloy Steel

Strictly speaking, every steel is an alloy, but not all steels are called “alloy steels”. The simplest steels are iron (Fe) alloyed with carbon (C) (about 0.1% to 1%, depending on type). However, the term “alloy steel” is the standard term referring to steels with other alloying elements added deliberately in addition to the carbon. Common alloyants include manganese (the most common one),nickel, chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, silicon, and boron. Less common alloyants include aluminum, cobalt, copper, cerium,niobium, titanium, tungsten, tin, zinc, lead, and zirconium.

Alloying elements are added in alloy steel castings to achieve certain properties in the material. As a guideline, alloying elements are added in lower percentages (less than 5%) to increase strength or hardenability, or in larger percentages (over 5%) to achieve special properties, such as corrosion resistance or extreme temperature stability. Manganese, silicon, or aluminum are added during the steel making process to remove dissolved oxygen, sulfur and phosphorus from the melt.

The following is a range of improved properties in alloy steel castings (as compared to carbon steels): strength, hardness, toughness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, hardenability, and hot hardness. To achieve some of these improved properties the metal may require heat treating.

Some of these find uses in exotic and highly-demanding applications, such as in the turbine blades of jet engines, in spacecraft, and in nuclear reactors. Because of the ferromagnetic properties of iron, some steel alloys find important applications where their responses to magnetism are very important, including in electric motors and in transformers.  The usages and applications for alloy steel castings span a huge variety of industries and types of cast parts.

Investment Casting/Lost Wax Casting:

We are specialized in investment casting process,as known as lost wax casting or silica sol casting,as a professional investment casting foundry in Ningbo,China. we focus on casting parts quality,our precision investment casting parts have below four aspects:

Sharp detail

The casting parts have net-near sharp,which can save material &machining cost a lot

Nice surface

Have nice surface smoothness,the investment casting part's surface roughness can reach Ra 6 (Or Ra 250 Micro inch)

Casting tolerance

Have fine dimension accuracy, for critical dimension can reach CT5-CT6 grade,for routine (or normal) dimension,can reach CT6-CT7 grade

Nice straightness

We pay attention to straightness and flatness of casting parts,we use press,fixture and gauge to do the straightening operation

Casting Flow:

1.Mold and Pattern Making

A mold is built to customer-provided specifications. Cold wax is then injected into the mold to create a wax pattern/prototype that will hold precise dimensional requirements in the final casting

2. Pattern Assembly

The wax patterns are assembled onto the sprue.

3. Dipping and Coating

Successive layers of ceramic and stucco are applied to the sprue assembly to form a hard shell.

4. De-waxing and Firing

The molds are flash-fired to remove the wax and sprue materials and then heated to 1800° and placed on a sand bed, ready for pouring

5. Casting

Molten metal, up to 3000°, is poured into the hollow mold and then cooled.

6. Knockout

The ceramic shell is broken off, and the individual castings are cut away.

7. Finishing

Excess metal is removed, surfaces are finished, and castings are heat treated.

8. Testing and Inspection

Castings undergo thorough testing and inspection to ensure that they meet dimensional tolerances and specifications.

9. Packing and Shipping

Castings are securely packaged for shipping to the customer.

Investment casting also called silica sol casting, lost wax casting, precision casting. Material is stainless steel, carbon steel, alloy steel. Standard of GB, ASTM, AISI, DIN, BS, JIS, NF. Our main material grade is 1.4408, CF8, CF8M, 4140, SS304, SS316, 40Cr, 42CrMo, etc.
