What is Ductile Iron Casting
Ductile iron casting has round graphite structures found in the metal. It is also known as nodular cast iron. The ductile iron casting is made from molten iron added with carbon. This combination makes Ductile iron casting efficient against fatigue and wear.
Ductile iron casting is a preferred type of casting because of its great properties. It has good hardness and tensile strength. Ductile iron also has high compressive strength, fatigue strength. It is corrosion-resistant and good at withstanding impact. These properties make it a popular casting as it shows reliability.
Ductile Iron Castings Advantages
Ductile iron castings have advantages of low melting point, good fluidity, and machinability. At the same time, It has many similar steel advances of high strength, ductility, and wear resistance. These qualities allow for higher tensile and yield strength. As a commercial product, Ductile iron castings offer lots of distinct advantages.
1–Higher strength-to-weight ratio. It is about 10% lighter than some competing steel alloys. Its weight contributes to its popularity because manufacturers can ship it cost-effectively in some circumstances.
2– Excellent surface finish. This will require less finishing after casting.
3– Good impact well. It permits more machining. Such as drilling, cutting, and surface treatments.
4–Corrosion resistance. withstand heavy wear. Such as applications of Buried ductile iron water and wastewater pipes
5–Ductile iron supplies an excellent casting material. It can create a wide array of products by using this metal alloy. Sometimes, ductile iron castings provide a cost-effective substitute for other metal alloys.
Ductile Iron Castings Applications
Ductile iron has higher strength and ductility than gray iron. Those properties let it be used in a variety of industrial applications. including pipe, automotive components, wheels, Valve Bodies, gearbox, pump housings, Rollers, Cable Drums, Frame, Pumps, Exhaust Manifolds, Crankshafts, Camshafts, Flanges, Hubs
Ductile Iron Casting Foundry and supplier
JC casting is a ductile iron foundry in China. We can produce ductile iron casting in different grades. such as Grade 60-40-18, Grade 65-45-12, Grade 80-55-06, Grade 100-70-03, Grade 120-90-02. At present, we use 2 main producing methods for iron casting: lost foam casting and sand casting processes. This is also used for grey iron castings. Besides casting, we also have value-added services of heat treatment, machining, and more.
