IRON FOUNDRY SAND CASTING
NBSJ has established our quality management policy strictly following the ISO 9001 standard in the cast iron foundry. We require every step of the order execution to be managed and controlled according to this policy to provide customers consistent quality products and services.
casting part inspection
Our quality management policy includes the following aspects.
Molten metal composition analysis before each casting;
Sample quality inspection, including dimensions, chemical composition, and mechanical properties;
Mass production casting procedure monitoring;
Quality inspection after mass production;
Packaging and transportation inspection;
All tests must have traceable inspection reports on file.
Ductile iron, Grey iron, and Malleable cast iron in sand casting
In a cast iron foundry, ductile iron, malleable iron, and grey iron are the most commonly used materials. In these three types of cast iron, the element carbon exists in graphite but differ in forms.
The graphite of ductile iron exits in nodular form after spheroidization and breeding treatment during the casting process. And this improves the mechanical properties of the cast iron, especially in plasticity and ductility. And the strength of ductile iron is close to steel, and even some ductile iron gets higher strength than steel.
The graphite of grey cast iron is in flake form, so the effective bearing area is relatively smaller. And this is why grey iron has lower strength, plasticity, and ductility than other cast iron. But grey iron has better anti-vibration property, higher wear resistance, and good machining performance after heat treatment.
Malleable cast iron
Malleable iron is a high-strength cast iron made by graphitizing and annealing white cast iron. The graphite exists in floc form, and it makes malleable iron have better mechanical properties. And because malleable iron has similar plasticity and ductility as steel, it is also known as Malleable Steel.
With our specialty in metal parts production, we have been serving many customers engaged in different industries like Home Appliances, Construction, Automobiles, Heavy Equipment, etc.
Based on more than 20 years of practice, and overall technical support from our rich-experienced engineering team, NBSJ can supply customers with the most optimal solution to choose the right iron casting process and material, that averagely saved 10% cost for their project. Meanwhile, due to our service team’s quick response, we are always there any time when you need us, standing together with the customer and saving time for both of us.
