The term "casting" is used to define or refer to parts made by the machine-casting process, which dates back more than 5,000 years. Speaking of history, this process is performed to create important and complex metal parts that are difficult to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods. Due to this development, steel casting parts came into being.
Steel castings refer to parts made of cast steel, which have similar properties to cast iron, but are stronger than cast iron. Steel castings are prone to defects such as air holes and inaccurate angle positioning during the casting process, and the casing may break during long-term use. Due to the characteristics of steel castings, almost all industrial sectors need to use steel castings, widely used in ships and vehicles, construction machinery, engineering machinery, power station equipment, mining machinery and metallurgical equipment, aviation and aerospace equipment, oil wells and chemical equipment.
Strength and Durability: Most manufacturers choose to use stainless steel castings for valve covers due to their incredible durability and strength. Even when using these types of bonnets in extreme temperatures, you can expect these types of bonnets to perform well and remain in good condition for a long time.
Metallurgical Versatility: Steel castings allow you to choose among different chemical compositions and textural controls that suit your project requirements. In other words, steel castings are highly metallurgically variable and adaptable. Additionally, you can achieve a wide range of physical and mechanical properties by simply varying its carbon and alloy content or heat treatment compared to any other cast metal.
Economical efficiency and increased reliability: You can rely on cast steel parts for everyday use because they are designed with an isotropic material for enhanced engineered reliability. When you consider its design flexibility and shorter lead times, steel castings can give you the economic efficiency you are looking for.
Design Flexibility: For steel casting parts, you can choose from a variety of alloys that provide your designer with the flexibility to configure the steel casting as needed. When steel castings are used, in addition to the fact that the maximum design freedom to produce complex shaped and hollow section parts would never be possible, these parts can be configured in a robust and repeatable manner. Since the design flexibility of steel castings allows you to make quick changes as needed, your lead times will be greatly reduced.
