In Casting Defects Handbook: Aluminum & Aluminum Alloys, many of the common types of casting defects encountered in the production of aluminum alloy castings are defects are categorized by production method: sand-casting, permanent mold, high pressure diecasting, low pressure, investment, plaster and lost foam, with possible causes and, in some .   Probable causes and suggested remedies of various casting defects such as blow holes, shrinkage, porosity, misruns, hot tears, mental penetration, cold shuts, cuts and washes, inclusions, fusion, drops, shot metal, shift, crushes, rat-tails, swells, hard spot, run out, fins and fash, spongings and warpage are given in the below table.

When ordering steel investment castings, the type of steel that will be used to produce the part must be identified. Steel investment castings are usually ordered to ASTM requirements and may be made from carbon steel, low and high alloys steel, low-temperature steel, heat resistant steel, and stainless steel, among others. Investment casting is the most cost-effective way, but the casting defects, such as casting porosity, composition and microstructure variation, and .

The first ASTM specification for ultrasonic inspection of steel castings was issued in and is for longitudinal-beam ultrasonic inspection of heat treated carbon and low alloy steel castings. This inspection method is in general not useful for austenitic steel castings due to large grain size of these castings. The parts obtained from investment casting process are used in many critical applications and hence they need to be free of internal defects. The main defects that occur during the investment casting process are ceramic inclusion, crack, distortion, flash, .

Steel Castings Handbook Supplement 2 Summary of Standard Specifications For Steel Castings - PREFACE Supplement 2 will be revised at regular intervals.

Supplement 2 is only a summary that is useful in comparing the general requirements in different types of specifications. When ordering, an up-to-date original specification should be used. Causes and Cures For Shell-Related Defects Defects are part of nearly every foundry's operations, and their causes are many and varied.

The booming investment casting industry shares these problems, of course, but its defects are largely shell-related, and differ somewhat from other metalcasting processes. Buy Defects in steel investment castings by Philip Neil Whateley (ISBN:) from Amazon's Book Store.

All defects will fall into one or more of the established categories of casting defects. The proper identification of a particular defect is the prerequisite to correcting and controlling. A casting defect is an undesired irregularity in a metal casting process.

Some defects can be Defects in steel investment castings. book while others can be repaired, otherwise they must be eliminated. They are broken down into five main categories: gas porosity, shrinkage defects, mould material defects, pouring metal defects, and metallurgical defects.

A general investigation was performed, in an industrial environment, of the major types of defect specific to investment castings in steel. As a result of this work three types of metallurgical defect were selected for further study. analyse the defects found in castings.

HOT TEAR DEFECTS Hot tear is a defect that occurs during solidification of a casting. Though steel is poured at high temperature, this temperature is low relative to high freezing temperature range for steel.

The result of this is that steel starts freezing soon after being poured, often before the mouldsFile Size: KB. The main production technics used in our investment casting factory are, * water glass casting, low temperture lost-wax casting process, with capacity to cast products range from kg to kgs.

The usually used materials are carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel, wear resistant material, etc. Hardness is a natual characteristic of investment casting materials, not a fundamental physical property. It is defined as the resistance to indentation, and it is determined by measuring the permanent depth of investment ent cast alloys will show different hardness results.

Steel castings are often used in critical situations where optimum mechanical properties are essential so that freedom from casting defects is particularly important. Steel castings compete in many areas with steel weldments.

In welding, it is difficult to avoid stress concentrations at junctions, while castings have well-radiused joints so.
