Applications of graphite in continuous casting
Graphite is widely used as a material for Continuous casting molds.
Continuous casting is a casting method in which the steps of pouring, solidification and withdrawal (extraction) of the casting from an open end mold are carried out continuously.
Graphite molds (dies) may be used in both types of the process: vertical continuous casting and horizontal continuous casting.
Most molds are fabricated from isostatically pressed graphite, however extruded graphite is also used for vertical casting of large ingots.
The following alloys are manufactured by continuous casting in graphite molds:
Grey cast irons
White cast irons
Oxygen-Free Copper (Cu)
Copper-nickel alloys and Nickel Silvers (Cu-Ni)
Aluminum bronzes (Cu-Al)
Brasses and leaded brasses(Cu-Zn, Cu-Zn-Pb )
Manganese bronzes (Cu-Mn)
Phosphor bronzes (Cu-Sn-P)
Tin bronzes (Cu-Sn-Zn)
Silicon bronzes (Cu-Si-Sn)
Aluminum-tin alloys (Al-Sn)
Silver and silver alloys (Ag)
Gold and gold alloys (Au)
Coinage alloys (Cu-Ni)
We are equipped with CNC lathe and CNC engraving machine as well as other graphite machining equipments. We also provide milling, band sawing, planning, slicing, drilling, polishing and many other services.
XRD Graphite engineer staff works closely with our customer to identify their need and covert their concepts into reality. We are also able to import your AutoCad files into SolidWorks models for design validation. Prototypes and samples can be provided to confirm design and details prior to mass production.
