    In China, you could find many types of agricultural machinery, such as tractors, weeding machines, and harvesters etc. the materials of agricultural machinery parts include grey iron, ductile iron and cast steel.
  4. How to calculate cast steel cost - on Mar. 28, 2011
    The calculation of cast steel parts are very complex. It need many professional knowledge to cast steel production processes, material composition and costs etc. However, we could introduce some main aspects for buyers to get an approximate estimation to the cast steel costs.
  5. Typical Defects of Ductile Iron Castings - on Mar. 25, 2011
    The following typical defects of ductile iron castings are based on the experiences of process engineers from Dandong Foundry in China. We hope these information could be helpful for other iron foundries and casting buyers.
  6. How to calculate the price of rough iron castings - on Mar. 24, 2011
    As a buyer for iron castings, you may always wonder how to estimate the reasonable prices of your iron casting parts, to evaluate the quotations from your potential suppliers. Since the machining costs are more complex, so we can not make it clear in one article, but as for the price of rough castings, we can briefly introduce its main aspects.
  7. Where to buy cheap iron castings - on Mar. 23, 2011
    As for a buyer for iron castings, the prices are always the most important consideration. In my works in iron foundry for many years, I was also wondering if our cast iron prices were the cheapest in the world. Unfortunately, we were not. There are many iron foundries worldwide who could produce the iron castings by the lower costs than ours.
  8. The differences of iron foundries and steel foundries in China - on Mar. 22, 2011
    In the past, one of our clients asked about the differences of iron foundries and steel foundries in China, herein, I made a brief introduction about this issue, and hope this could be helpful for other metal casting purchasers.
  9. Technical Specification for Material Defects to Metal Castings - on Mar. 21, 2011
    This Technical Specification describes permissible and non-permissible material defects with regard to iron and steel castings, especially for housings, covers, boxes, brackets, rims and rings etc.
  10. Inspection Methods to Ductile Iron Castings - on Mar. 18, 2011
    Normal casting defects of ductile iron include some macro-defects, such as air holes, sand inclusion, slag inclusion, shrinkage or shrinkage cavity, and some micro-defects, such as unqualified nodularity rate and too large grain size, etc.
  11. DIN 7168 - General dimension tolerances for iron and steel castings - on Mar. 17, 2011
    DIN 7168 is a general tolerance standard for linear and angular dimensions, which could be widely used for inspection to cast iron and cast steel castings. It is a very useful standard for buyers and suppliers.
  12. Cast Iron Pipe Fittings Made in China - on Mar. 16, 2011
    Pipe fittings are the accessories of connecting pipes. Pipe fittings usually include elbows, tee joints, four-way adapters, short tubes, sockets, bends, flanges and plugs, etc.
  13. Metal Patterns for Sand Castings in China - on Mar. 15, 2011
    In the quotations of iron castings, you may find the suppliers proposed to use metal patterns for production, so you may be confused about what the metal patterns meant, and why they were so costly. Of course, you may wonder if the metal patterns were necessary for your products. Herein, I make a brief introduction for metal patterns based on my working experience in Dandong Foundry of China.
  14. Nodulizing Grades of Ductile Iron - on Mar. 14, 2011
    Nodulizing grades are also called as nodularity grades, nodularization grades, or percent of spheroidization. It is a very important indicator to evaluation the quality of ductile iron microstructure. High nodulizing grade means the high quality and better mechanical properties of iron casting parts.
  15. Casting Process of Grey Iron Belt Pulley - on Mar. 13, 2011
    Grey iron belt pulley is a kind of iron casting with very high technical requirements. We talked about its casting process by an example of material ASTM A48 CLASS 35, weight 1500 kg and outside diameter 1100mm.
  16. Cast Iron Price Trend and Production Costs in 2011 of China - on Mar. 11, 2011
    After Chinese New Year (CNY) holiday, the cast iron prices in China have been increased largely, and this change was sudden and serious, so many clients were doubted about what reasons have caused the price increasing, and what price trend will it be in 2011.
