During casting with induction, molten metal is poured into a mold which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape. The mold and metal then cools and solidifies and produces the casted part. Additional information about Casting with Induction can be found below.
During casting with induction, molten metal is poured into a mold which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape. The mold and metal then cools and solidifies to produce the casted part. Ultraflex equipment for casting with induction utilizes both centrifugal casting and pressure casting (also known as vacuum filling) technologies.
With centrifugal casting, the molten metal is released into the center of a spinning mold. The centrifugal force that is generated from the spinning forces pushes the molten material outward and into the crevices of the mold. The EasyCast, SuperCast and CS Digital from Ultraflex all use centrifugal casting technology.
With pressure casting, a vacuum is first applied to both the melting and casting chambers. The metal is heated using induction until molten. Pressure is then applied to the melting chamber, at the same time as a vacuum is applied to the casting chamber. The result is that the molten metal is pulled into the intricate nooks and crannies of the mold. Ultraflex offers the PressCast as a traditional pressure casting system using both a crucible and flask; and UltraCast, which uses proprietary technology that combines the crucible and flask into one.
The primary criteria to decide system which induction casting system is right for your application is based on the type and volume of metal being cast. Ultraflex offers a Casting Selector to help identify the right induction casting product for your application.
