The Advantages of Steel Castings
Steel castings are widely used in our life
and their advantages include design flexibility, metallurgical
versatility, weight flexibility, reliability and economic benefits.
1. Design flexibility
One of the advantages of steel castings is design flexibility, the
designers have the maximum design freedom to choose the shape and
size of the steel castings, especially the complex shape parts and
hollow section parts, steel castings can be made via this unique
core–up technique. It is very easy to form and change the shape, and
the transformation from design to finished product is very fast,
which is in favor of giving prompt response to the offer and helping
shorten the delivery time. State of the art of the shape and
quality, the smallest stress concentration factor and the strongest
overall structural characteristics all reflect the flexibility of
steel casting design and its technological superiority.
2. Metallurgical versatility
The second advantage of steel castings is the strongest
metallurgical adaptability and variability. We can choose different
chemical composition and organizational control to make it adapted
to different project requirements. A wider range of physical and
mechanical properties can be obtained in cast steel than in any
other cast metal by simply varying the carbon and alloy content, the
heat treatment, or both, and gain a good weldability and
3. Reliability and economic benefits
The isotropic steel materials and steel castings' overall structural
strength increase the engineering reliability. Coupled with the
design to reduce weight and shorten delivery time, Steel castings
have a competitive advantage in price and economical efficiency.
4. Weight flexibility
The fourth advantage is the weight of steel castings can be changed
in a large range. Little weight can be seen in precision castings
with a weight of only tens of grams, and the weight of large steel
castings can be several tons, dozens or even hundreds of tons.
We can list a number of benefits of using steel castings and thus it
is widely used in many industries like construction, energy and
marine, transportation, etc. Our metal casting factory, Dandong
Foundry will provide you different kinds of steel castings to
satisfy your different needs.
