Aluminum gravity casting: the ideal solution for your production
The gravity casting is a process well known in the alloys field; it guarantees high accuracy on dimensions for the creation of components used in a lot of different sectors.
It permits to give strength, durability and a very smooth and precise surface.
Moreover, the aluminum gravity casting is a process that takes less time for solidification compared to other processes and has a reasonable production cost.
How does it work?
Differently from the other methods (die, centrifugal and continuous casting), the gravity casting consist in pouring the molten metal, usually aluminum, zinc or copper, from a pot into a specific mold, without the use of forces other than gravity.
The alloy in solidification will take the shape of the mold and once the part is removed, the mold can be used again, guaranteeing a longer lifetime then the other casting processes.
The gravity casting can be done in automatic or manual, it depends on the nature of the parts to produce, and it is very simple because you do not need vacuum, pressurized gasses or other forces.
If you are wondering about the possible gravity casting defects in the production, do not worry: this is one of the best processes to have strong, durable and balanced alloy elements that are used also for components in heavy duty machines, aerospace and in medical device.
Fonderia Taroni is a specialized aluminum gravity casting manufacturer and has been working with this process since 1974.
