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 :
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 1154°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:-
