What are the advantages of choosing customized casting parts over standard ones?

The Customization Advantage in Casting

In an era where specificity and precision are paramount, the advantages of choosing customized casting parts over standard ones are numerous and impactful. Customization allows for a level of detail and adaptation that standard parts simply cannot match.

Enhanced Performance with Tailored Designs

Tailor-made casting parts offer the unparalleled benefit of being designed to perfectly fit the intended application. This specificity in design not only improves the performance of the part but also enhances the overall efficiency of the machine or structure it is a part of.

Material Selection for Specific Applications

Custom casting allows for the selection of materials based on the exact needs of the application. This means that each part can be optimized for factors such as weight, strength, corrosion resistance, or thermal conductivity.

Precision and Quality in Custom Castings

Custom castings are synonymous with high precision. They are often produced to tighter tolerances and higher quality standards than off-the-shelf parts, ensuring that they fit seamlessly into the desired application with little to no modification required.

Cost-Effectiveness of Customization

While it may seem counterintuitive, custom casting can be incredibly cost-effective. By producing parts that are an exact fit, waste is significantly reduced, and the longevity of the parts means fewer replacements over time.

Reducing Waste with Precision Casting

Precision in custom casting translates directly to less material waste. The exact amount of material needed can be used, minimizing excess and the costs associated with it.

Long-Term Savings with Durable Custom Parts

Customized parts are often more durable because they’re made to handle the specific stresses of their intended use. This durability leads to cost savings as the need for replacements and repairs is reduced.

Cast Iron Shrinkage Defects

Cast iron shrinkage defect has a great influence on the quality of cast iron. It will reduce the tensile strength and elongation, thus causing the iron casting to crack or penetrate in the shrinking area.

Today, based on my work experience at Yide Casting, I will introduce you to three types of shrinkage.

1. Sink on the surface

On the rough casting surface, you can see sinking pits. These pits are caused by shrinkage below the surface. Just like the photo below. This shrinkage will affect the size of the area and affect its physical properties. Generally, this shrinkage is unacceptable.

2. Large shrinkage holes inside of cast iron

You will not see this shrinkage on the surface. But after processing, this will be very obvious. You will see many large and small pores in the constricted area. Of course, this shrinkage is also unacceptable and very harmful to the application.

3. Small shrinkage holes inside of cast iron

Sometimes, after processing, you will see very small pores. Sometimes they cannot even be seen with the naked eye, but they can be inspected with a magnifying glass. Or, sometimes, you can refine them through water pressure or oil pressure testing. These shrinkages will cause the low density of cast irons, making them unable to withstand high pressures.


Obviously, shrinkage is very harmful to iron castings. The main reason for the shrinkage is the unreasonable casting process, especially the gate size. After the shrinkage is found, the iron casting plant should adjust its gate system.

However, since most shrinkage defects are under the cast iron surface, how should we check?

1. Generally, you can allow the supplier to perform roughing, so that they can find shrinkage after processing. This method is the most obvious and economical method, because most iron foundries in China have in-house rough machining capabilities.

2. For the pump body or valve body, you can conduct a water pressure test or ask your supplier to conduct a random test on them. Although this method cannot guarantee that all castings are qualified, at least some problems will be found.

3. You can cut off the sensitive position to check the shrinkage rate. According to our experience, shrinkage usually occurs in the gate area and certain corner areas. Therefore, after finding the shrinking position, you can focus on checking these positions in the batch inspection. You can just cut off these locations with a saw, or you can ask the supplier to cut off these locations that may cause shrinkage according to your instructions.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Stainless Steel Casting Process

Advantages and disadvantages of stainless steel casting process


Everyone in the casting industry knows a fact. That is the mechanical properties of stainless steel casting are higher than that of cast iron, but its casting performance is worse than that of cast iron. Stainless steel casting belongs to investment or precision casting, with relatively high melting point. The molten steel is easily oxidized, due to poor fluidity and large shrinkage rate. From a practical perspective, stainless steel casting is suitable for casting of various types and alloys.


Advantages and disadvantages of the stainless steel casting process are as below:


First, due to the poor liquidity of the molten steel, the wall thickness of the steel castings should not be less than 8 mm, in order to prevent the cold shut and misrun. The structure of the pouring system strives to be simple, and the sectional dimension is larger than that of cast iron. Adopt dry casting or hot casting, and the casting temperature should be appropriately increased to 1520-1600 ℃. The fluidity can be improved since the casting temperature is high with large superheat, thus the liquid stays for a long time.


However, if the pouring temperature is too high, it will cause defects such as coarse grains, hot cracks, pores and sand burning. Therefore, the casting temperature of small, thin-walled and complex casting should be at the melting point +150 ℃; and of large, thick-walled casting +100 ℃.


We must take these measures to prevent the occurrence of shrinkage holes and cracks in stainless steel castings. 1. Making the wall thickness uniform, and avoid sharp and right angle structures, 2. Adding sawdust to sand mold, and coke to sand core. 3. Adopting hollow sand core and oil sand core to change the deformability and permeability of the sand mold and core.

The Density of Ductile Iron

The density of ductile cast iron is approximately 7.3 g/cm3, or 7.3 kg/liter, or 119.6 g/cm3. However, due to the material grade and shrinkage level, the density has a certain range of variation.

In other words, if the quality of pig iron used by the iron foundry is better and the shrinkage rate is smaller, then the density of ductile iron will be higher. Otherwise, the density of ductile iron will be lower. Therefore, it ranges from 7.1 to 7.3 g/cm3.

Iron foundries usually estimate the weight of rough castings by calculating the volume of ductile iron, so the density will be used. However, you cannot judge the quality of castings by density alone.

There are more factors that will affect it, such as spheroidization rate and cooling rate. Hence, it will be reasonable within this range.
