choosing castings

Author : XINKAI manufacture Date : 2017-6-20 11:37:44
 There exist many different types of manufacturing process that might be used to fabricate a product to satisfy a specified industry field,
or any industrial field in general, such as marine, construction, auto, aerospace, etc. When choosing manufacturers to make these products,
the wise thing to do first is having knowledge of what kind of manufacturing process is best for your products,
each different manufacturing process has its own special feature, lack of consideration may result in ridiculous cost,
inefficient products use and perhaps serious dangerous when these products working on the entire system, the loss would be irreparable.
As that being said, it is so important knowing what manufacturing process fits best for your products.
The most popular processes are casting and forging, these two different process give a big difference when the products are made,
even though exactly the same products, how would you guarantee the mechanical properties,
or is there a beneficial tradeoff in your specific process for tight tolerances vs grain strength?
You must understand that some product manufacturing is optimized when certain metal working process are used.
Above all, there are many important factors to consider when choosing the best process to use for manufacturing your products:
1.    Material type
2.    Mechanical properties
3.    Tolerance
4.    Working conditions
5.    Pricing
It is necessary to consider the cost when the listed conditions 1-4 could be guaranteed,
ask yourself this question: will I agree a 30% less cost however all of my products are made and none of them could pass the test.
Let us take a look of these two different processes: casting and forging.
Casting process:
A metal manufacturing process using molten metal gravity or vacuum pouring into the mold, changing the shape of the final piece,
higher precision, complex inner structures, especially investment casting, Taiyuan Simis Investment Casting Co., Ltd is able to guarantee a CT4 tolerance level.
Forging process:
A metal manufacturing process which gives an external force on an ingot to change its shape and mechanical properties, this process makes a stronger products,
however less precision and relatively easier structure.
Comparing these two major metal manufacturing process, the following conclusion is given:
In general, casting cost slightly more than forging process, more desirable shape and better tolerance level are also castings’ advantage.
Forging gives a better integrity on the products, lower cost and better mechanical property is forgings’ advantage.
These two types of process gives totally different results in terms of how a product would work.
The cost is a factor to consider only if the other conditions could be guaranteed no matter what.
