Applications in steel casting

Due to the characteristics of steel castings, almost all industrial sectors need to use steel castings in ships and vehicles, construction machinery, engineering machinery, power station equipment, mining machinery and metallurgical equipment, aviation and aerospace equipment, oil wells and chemical equipment, etc. The application is particularly wide. As for the application of steel castings in various industrial sectors, the situation may be quite different due to different specific conditions in various countries.

There are numerous varieties of steel castings. Here is a brief description of the use of steel castings in several major industrial sectors.

1. Power station equipment

Power plant equipment is a high-tech product. Meanwhile, its main parts should work continuously for a long time under high load. Many parts of thermal power plant and nuclear power plant equipment still need to withstand the corrosion of high temperature and high pressure steam.Therefore,  there are very strict requirements for the reliability of the parts. Steel castings can meet these requirements to the greatest extent and are widely used in power station equipment.

2. Railway locomotives and vehicles

Railway transportation is closely related to the safety of people’s lives and property. Therefore, it is very important to ensure the safety. Some key components of rolling stock, such as wheels, side frames, bolsters, couplers, etc., are all traditional steel castings.
The switch used in railway switches is a component that bears strong impact and friction. The working conditions are extremely harsh, and the shape is very complicated. Steel castings can perfectly meet the requirements of frequent beat. At the same time, cast steel can make very fine products.


3. Construction machinery and other vehicles

The working conditions of construction machinery and engineering machinery are very poor. And most of the parts need to bear high loads or need to withstand impact and wear. As a result, a large part of them are steel castings, such as driving wheels, load-bearing wheels, and rocker arms in the mobile system , track shoes, etc.

Steel castings are rarely used in general automobiles. However, we can find a lot of steel castings in the moving parts of special off-road vehicles and heavy trucks.
