Malleable Castings

Casting is a process in which molten metal is poured or injected and allowed to solidify in a suitably shaped mold cavity. During or after cooling, the cast part is removed from the mold and then processed for delivery.

Casting processes and cast-material technologies vary from simple to highly complex. Material and process selection depends on the part's complexity and function, the product's quality specifications, and the projected cost level.

Malleable castings utilize ductile material characterized by high tensile and breaking strength, impact or shock-bending resistance, and plastic deformability, which is particularly well adapted to thin-walled components exposed to impact shock. Well suited to the making of thin-walled castings of complex design and highly precise configuration. Moreover, white malleable castings are weldable, permitting the design of welded components.
