Technical key points
Ø In order to get a better slagging effect, set larger risers and increase pouring temperature appropriately. In normal situation, WCB carbon steel at 1570 ℃ -1580 ℃, stainless steel at 1580 ℃ -1590 ℃.
Ø pouring speed: in the case of ensuring smooth gas discharge from the cavity, higher pouring speed can be used;pouring operation requirements: after casting, as soon as the castings solidified, remove the pressure iron and box, to reduce the casting shrinkage resistance and avoid cracks and flaws.
Ø Strict contract auditing invloved all departments to assure the feasibility of each order.
Ø Process design and validation before bulk production.
Ø Strictly control on all raw and auxiliary materials, All raw materials reach the world advanced level.
Ø On-site inspection to all processes, inspection record keep traceable for 3 years.
Ø All inspectors are skilled with international certificates.
