Xihua ductile iron foundry can make ductile iron casting (SG Iron Casting) of max.weight 70 tons.Ductile iron has greater strength and ductility then gray iron. Those properties allow it to be used effectively in a wide variety of industrial applications, including gear boxes, ,flange,Planet carrier,machine frames for the wind-power industry, and so on.
Ductile iron, also known as ductile cast iron, is a type of graphite-rich cast iron alloy for iron castings. Ductile Iron castings are produced for applications requiring strength, toughness, good machinability, and low cost. Ductile Iron contains spheroidal (nodular) shaped graphite, is higher strength than Gray Iron, and weighs about 10% less than steel for the same section size.
Benefits of Ductile Iron Casting:
It has superior castability and machinability.
It has an excellent strength to weight ratio.
Cost of ductile iron casting is lower than steel castings.
Compared to grey iron casting, ductile iron has much more impact and fatigue resistance, due to its nodular graphite inclusions.
Ductile iron casting provides a designer with an exceptional combination of toughness, low cost manufacturing, and reliability.
