Centrifugal casting is a process that delivers casting of extremely highest material soundness, making it the technology of choice for engineers in the airline, chemical and military industries. This technique is primarily used to cast thin-walled cylinders. It is noted for high quality results attainable, particularly for the meticulous control over the metallurgy and grain.
Unlike most other techniques, centrifugal casting is chiefly used to manufacture stock materials in standard sizes for further machining, rather than shaped parts tailored to a particular end use.
Alcon Industries can both centrifugal cast and machine the perfect finished part.
