  • Cast Brass and Cast Bronze Valves
    Why cast brass or cast bronze valves are usually made heavier than forged ones.
  • Cast Iron
    Cast irons include many metals having a wide variety of properties. Although cast iron is often considered a simple metal to produce and to specify, the metallurgy of cast iron is more complex than that of steel and most other metals. Steels and cast irons are both primarily iron with carbon
  • A better way to cast aluminum
    Gravity casting aluminum in permanent molds beats conventional sand and pressure die casting. The mold for this 17-lb, 48-in.-diameter fan was reverse engineered from a sand casting. The fan used in an agricultural application is cast in one piece. The high repeatability of the permanent-mold
  • Green Energy and CAST Lighting
    There is an ever-increasing demand for energy-efficient lighting and for lighting that addresses other environmental concerns. For this reason, lighting manufacturers have responded in varying degrees with products designed with these goals in mind. CAST Lighting LLC., from its inception
  • Think cast urethane for feedpath components
    Cast-urethane parts improve packaging equipment while reducing costs. Mearthane Products Corp. Cranston, R.I. Open-cast thermoset urethanes can be formulated one way for a roller, another for a belt, differently for a pad, and so on. Even among those few components, urethane can have the properties
  • Quick Guide to Die Cast Surface Finish
    A preliminary guide for evaluation of die cast surface finishing. alternatives for product appearance, durability and protection. to aid in cost-effective specification of parts produced in. Aluminum, Magnesium & Zinc-and ZA-8-die casting alloys.
  • Die-Cast Aluminum Squeezes Out Steel
    quot;Lighten it up " is the mantra of every automotive designer. The steering knuckles for Jaguar XJ and S-Type sedans are die cast using a proprietary P2000 HVSC (high-vacuum squeeze-casting) process. The cast-aluminum steering arms were fatigue tested by applying loads for 2.5 million cycles
  • Localized Corrosion of Cast Zr 702 (.pdf)
    There have been a few specific services where random, unexplained, localized corrosion of cast zirconium equipment has occurred. This localized attack is more than can be explained by traditional pitting or crevice corrosion mechanisms. The attack appears to be limited to services that are pushing
  • Die-Cast Zinc Solves Assembly Woes
    with a nut shape in place, a zinc-alloy nut is cast around a shaft, cutting material waste. Using zinc alloy as a binding agent, a shaft is joined to a squirrel-cage rotor with a hub, eliminating distortion problems caused by press fitting. Close tolerance is consistently held, and spacer bushings
  • Working with a Manufacturer to Create Solution Cast Films (Part I)
    Precision, multi-layer solution coating processes are ideally suited for the manufacture of high-performance cast films, including polyurethane (PU) films. Solution casting a polymer dissolved in a solvent onto a temporary substrate has many advantages over the traditional extrusion of molten
  • The Application of OIM to Friction Stir Processing of Cast NiAl Bronze Materials (.pdf)
    Orientation imaging microscopy (OIM) has been used to investigate deformation and recrystallization during friction stir processing (FSP) of cast NiAl bronze materials. FSP is a novel adaptation of friction stir welding (FSW), a solid state joining technology originally developed at The Welding
  • Portable LED Perimeter Lighting Retrofit for Construction Sites - CAST Lighting and Penn State Case Study
    The Pennsylvania State University undertook, as part of their Greenhouse Gas Reduction Initiative, the conversion of campus construction perimeter lighting from a traditional type to a new energy-efficient LED fence lighting solution. The new solution, the CAST Lighting LED Perimeter Lighting
  • A Better Way to Cast Aluminum (.pdf)
    Today, gravity-fed permanent metal molds can produce near-net-shape parts from a variety of aluminum alloys. But it's up to the designer to makes sure it's both possible and profitable to use permanent molds to produce the part. Knowing the limits of this casting process can help designers create
