Cast Iron Agricultural Machine Parts Made in China
In China, you could find many types of
agricultural machinery, such as tractors, weeding machines, and
harvesters etc. the materials of
agricultural machinery parts include grey iron, ductile
iron and cast steel.
The main agricultural machinery parts include
tractor gear box,
iron bracket, reducer
shell, belt pulley,
cast iron cradle, iron support, brake drum, and axle support, etc.
Tractor gear boxes
The main function of the gearbox is supporting the drive shafts to
ensure that the distance between the center axis and parallel, and
to ensure the correct installation of gearbox components with other
The material of tractor gear box is usually grey cast iron. Because
the grey cast iron has good machinability, good wear resistance and
vibration damping. Moreover, grey cast iron is cheaper.
Brake drum is a part of brake system. The material of brake drums
must have higher vibration resistance and wear resistance, so the
material of brake drums is usually grey iron
ASTM A48 Class 35.
The type of axle support includes front axle support, and rear axle
support The material of axle support includes grey iron, ductile
iron or cast steel. Tractor axle supports are usually made by grey
iron ASTM A48 class 20, 30 and 35. Auto axle supports are usually
made by ductile iron ASTM A536
60-40-18, 65-45-12, 70-50-05 and 80-60-03.
Gear casting is also called cast steel gear. It is because most of
gears are made by cast steel. As for the materials, gear castings
were usually made by high carbon cast steel, and some were made by
alloy steel with some Cr, Ni and Mo in order to reach high tensile
Cast iron brackets
Cast iron brackets are usually made by ductile iron. Cast iron
brackets are used on the trucks and vehicles, so they must have good
tensile strength and elongation.
Belt pulley mainly used for long-distance power transmission. Such
as small diesel power output, tractor, agricultural vehicle, and
mechanical processing equipments.
The production processes of belt pulley are usually included casting
and forging. Large belt pulleys are usually made by casting process.
The materials are usually cast iron.
