Centrifugal Casting

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia

Centrifugal casting has a rotating cylindrical mould; molten matter poured into the mould solidifies to give a pipe. The quality is excellent and the process is used for making long pipelines for the chemical industry. Here we illustrate small-scale centrifugal casting, to make particularly homogeneous castings of solid steel-rods.
