Centrifugal casting is used to manufacture hollow and coreless metal parts: molten metal is subject to high-speed rotation around the mold’s axis and adheres to the mold walls due to the centrifugal force before hardening. Depending on the amount of metal cast, centrifugal casting produces parts with various thicknesses.
Advantages of centrifugal casting
MICROSTEEL primarily creates cobalt-based superalloys, known as Alacrite™ (Stellite™). They show excellent friction, corrosion, and high temperature resistance. Our expertise also extends to iron and nickel-based alloys. We can also rely on our design expertise to develop specific alloys.
Fields of application
Centrifugal casting is used in any area that requires fine, uniform and compact mechanical parts: aeronautics, power generation (oil & gas, nuclear…), defence, motor sports, industries, steel industry, food industry
We are a lost wax foundry (steel, cobalt base, nickel base and titanium), a centrifugal foundry for cobalt base alloys (stellite) and superalloys and a machine shop. Our company is specialised in the fields of aeronautics, medical, energy, defence and industry.
