The principle of this casting process is that the mold the rotates fairly rapidly while the molten metal is poured into it. This casting process is also referred to as liquid fording because of the poured metal being worked while the mold rotates. Due to the rotation of the mold centrifugal forces are being developed, which direct the incoming liquid metal to the inner surface of the mold with considerable intensity, where solidification occurs. This method of casting produces a product of greater accuracy and superior physical properties as compared with that produces by gravity sand casting.1 Centrifugal casting is especially appropriate for products of symmetrical shape, such as cast-iron pipes, sleeves, and entirely metallic, semi-permanent (made of metal and lined with refractory material), or of sand. If sand molds are used, they arc usually placed in a metallic container or housing adapted for spinning.

Production of sound cylindrical castings depends upon correct spinning speeds. These have been well determined after considerable research and development. Excessive spinning speeds produce high stresses m the casting, making it unsuitable for practical purposes, while

slow speeds prevent the molten it unsuitable for practical purposes, wile slow speeds prevent the molten metal from adhering to the inside surface of the mold. Speeds vary in accordance with the metal being cast, the size of the casting and other factors a shop producing a large variety of work by centrifugal casting requires mechanical equipment suitable for speeds ranging from 50 to 3,000 revolutions per minute. The machines are either mechanically or hydraulically driven, hydraulic operation being preferred because of (he smooth operation and the capacity for infinite speed variation it provides.
