Cast-iron-components are the most popular choice of manufacturing industry over the years. Its popularity stems from the fact that it is unmatched in strength and durability. It can also withstand high wear and tear. Some of the most popular variants with wide range of applications are given below:
Grey Iron with Flake Graphite (FG) : It contains 2.5-4% carbon, 1-3% silica and 0.2-1% manganese. Grey iron has a high damping capacity, good sliding properties and thermal conductivity, which makes it suitable for a diverse range of application in industrial machineries.
Application of Grey Iron with Flake Graphite (FG) Components :
Used for making fly wheels, machine bases, engine blocks, piston rings, brake, discs and drums.
Ductile Iron with Spheroidal Graphite (SG) : It is also called Spheroidal Iron, it has very little phosphorus and sulphur. It has greater strength and ductility than grey iron of similar composition.
Application of Ductile Iron with Spheroidal Graphite (SG) Components:
Very popular choice for making heavy duty gears, pistons, rolls for rolling mills, gear case, valves, tubes and door hinges.
Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) : High-strength ADI iron displays high wear resistance.
Application of Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) Components :
It is widely used for making parts for heavy trucks, farm and earth moving equipment like axle journals, geardrives, crankshafts, pull hooks and wheels.
White Cast Iron : It contains 1.8-3.6% carbon, 0.5-1.9% silicon and 1-2% manganese.White cast iron has an excellent resistance against wear and abrasion.
Application of White Cast Iron Components :
It is used for shot-blasting nozzles, rolling millrolls, crushers, pulverizers and ball mill liners. Note: Minimum order weight to be of 1 Ton or 500 pieces
