Cast Iron Casting is a grouping of iron-carbon admixtures with an advanced carbon complacent more than 2%. Its utility reasons out from its comparatively low melting temperature. The alloy components change its color when faulted.
This inclines to be brittle, excluding the malleable ones. With its comparatively low melting point, it has good fluidity, cast-ability, superior machinability, opposition to deformation and are wear resistance. Cast irons have become an engineering material with a vast ambit of applications and are employed in machines, pipes and automotive industry parts such as cylinder blocks, cylinder heads and gearbox cases. Resistant to weakening, destruction and oxidation, Cast Iron Casting can be made by simulation that creates the base for a secure design of an appropriate gating and rise-ring system. This also helps in optimizing metallurgy as well as melting practice, and provides in-depth previsions of casting properties and micro-structure.
Distinctive advantages of Cast Iron Casting :
- The insight and understanding of the process can be measured in advance
- Certain casting quality fortifies your collaboration with clients.
- Decreases the production risks and aids in realizing the prospective of cast iron materials in economic and strapping manufacturing processes.

- Rugged application
Grey iron is an alloy of silicon, iron, and carbon that solidifies using an eutectic. Hence, these alloys have become ternary Fe-C-Si alloys. The major principle of cast iron solidification is understood from the binary iron-carbon phase structure, where the eutectic point is lying at 1154Â°C as well as 4.3 wt% carbons. Only few terms are used to describe the cast iron as well as its constituents that are:-
- Eutectic mixture: It is a mixture of such proportions where the melting point is lowest
- Ferrite or alpha iron (Â±-Fe) : Itâs a term for a solid with iron or iron as the main part
- Pearlite : Itâs a two-phased and lamellar (or layered) material developed from the alternating layers of alpha-
- ferrite as well as cementite eutectic
- Cementite or iron carbide: Itâs a chemical compound with orthorhombic crystal structure having hardness and brittle features.
