A casting machine is an equipment used for manufacturing metal castings in industrial production.
It can inject molten metal into the mold and obtain the desired casting shape through cooling and solidification processes.
In the development process of casting machines, different demands and technological advancements have driven the continuous updating and improvement of casting machines.
Therefore, casting machines can be divided into various types to meet the casting needs of different fields.
2、 Pressure casting machine
Pressure casting machine is a common type of casting machine that injects molten metal into the mold by applying high pressure.
There are two main types of pressure casting machines: cold chamber pressure casting machines and hot chamber pressure casting machines.
Cold chamber pressure casting machine is suitable for casting high melting point metals, such as aluminum alloys and magnesium alloys.
The hot chamber pressure casting machine is suitable for casting low melting point metals, such as zinc alloys and lead alloys.
Pressure casting machines have the advantages of high production efficiency and stable casting quality, and are widely used in fields such as automobiles and aerospace.
3、 Sand casting machine
A sand casting machine is a type of casting machine that uses sand molds as casting molds.
There are two main types of sand casting machines: manual sand casting machines and automated sand casting machines.
Manual sand casting machines are suitable for small batch production, with simple operation and low cost.
Automated sand casting machines are suitable for large-scale production and have highly automated characteristics, enabling continuous casting.
Sand casting machines are widely used in fields such as machinery, metallurgy, and shipbuilding, and can cast various shapes of castings.
4、 Continuous casting machine
Continuous casting machine is a type of casting machine used for continuous casting.
It achieves continuous casting by injecting molten metal into a continuous casting mold.
There are two main types of continuous casting machines: direct continuous casting machines and indirect continuous casting machines.
Direct continuous casting machines are suitable for casting and medium-sized castings, with high production efficiency and low energy consumption.
Indirect continuous casting machine is suitable for casting small castings, with high casting accuracy and good surface quality.
Continuous casting machines are widely used in industries such as steel, copper, and aluminum, and can achieve efficient and high-quality casting.
5、 Other types of casting machines
In addition to the types of casting machines mentioned above, there are also some other types of casting machines.
For example, a low-pressure casting machine is a type of casting machine that uses low pressure to inject molten metal into the mold.
Low pressure casting machines are suitable for casting and complex shaped castings.
In addition, a spray casting machine is a casting machine that achieves casting by spraying metal liquid.
Spray casting machines are suitable for casting high-temperature alloys and difficult to cast materials.
Casting machine is one of the indispensable equipment in industrial production, which can achieve the production of cast products by injecting molten metal into the mold.
According to different needs and technological progress, casting machines can be divided into various types, such as pressure casting machines, sand casting machines, continuous casting machines, etc.
Each type of casting machine has its own applicable scenarios and advantages.
By selecting and using casting machines reasonably, production efficiency can be improved, production costs can be reduced, and high-quality castings can be obtained.
