    Centrifugal casting vs forging

Forging is one of well-known conventional castings.  Comparing with centrifugal casting or spin casting, there are several limitations of forging. Centrifugal casting is much better on many aspects.

The centrifugal casting advantages have been illustrated on the other article of FAQ.

The comparison – centrifugal casting vs static casting is shown as follows.

 

Centrifugal Casting

Forging

Provide Custom

Alloy?

Various materials can be cast by centrifugal casting.

There is the limitation of material selection by forging.

 

Great quality?

 

The products are clean and pure because the solidification under the high speed rotation by centrifugal casting.

 

The surface is without the porosity by centrifugal casting.

 

The strength is high by centrifugal casting.

 

The grain structure is directed by centrifugal casting.

   

 

 

 

 

 

The products are also without the porosity by forging.

 

The strength is also high by forging.

 

The grain structure is also directed by forging.

 

Possible for small order quantity?

 

Competitive price?

Small quantity would not change the price by centrifugal casting.

The cost of mold is high and the price would be competitive only when ordering several ton order weights by forging.

 

Cost advantage?

It’s more cost-effective

by centrifugal casting.
