The centrifugal casting method is the method to produce pipes by pouring molten metal into a rapidly spinning cylindrical mold in which centrifugal force from the rotation exerts pressure on the molten metal.

Advantages of Centrifugal Casting

Directional solidification, starting from the outer face in contact with the metal mold, realizes a sound cast metal quality, free of cavity and inclusions. The centrifugal force produces a hollow cylindrical product with no wall thickness variations. Another advantage of the centrifugal casting method is that residual stress after casting is minimized because there is nothing to disturb solidification shrinkage.
