What You Should Know About Centrifugal Molding
Centrifugal molding is when a permanent mold is rotated continuously about its axis at high speeds, and the material is centrifugally thrown towards the outside mold wall and set up.
What Are Its Advantages?
Impurities and inclusions are pulled to the top and can be machined off, large cross-sections, reduced secondary processing, low porosity, better details, tighter tolerances, and best metal bonding.
Why Wouldn’t You Use It?
The molds are more expensive to produce with the centrifugal molding process.
Unfortunately, part sizes are limited when using this process.
The scrap material used in the process is not reusable, possibly increasing your part manufacturing costs.
