Special expertise in centrifugal casting

In 1994, MICROSTEEL – historically an investment casting expert – expanded its casting area of expertise with centrifugal casting.

Centrifugal casting is used to manufacture hollow and coreless metal parts: molten metal is subject to high speed rotation around the mold’s axis and adheres to the mold walls due to the centrifugal force before hardening.Depending on the amount of metal cast, centrifugal casting produces parts with various thicknesses.

Advantages of centrifugal casting

  • Fine, uniform and compact metal structures
  • Improved mechanical features
  • Improved machinability

Cobalt base alloy: Alacrite

Centrifugal casting manufacturing stages

  • Molten metal casting
  • Impurity segregation
  • Machined parts are uniform and compact
  • QA inspection and final control

Processed alloys and grades

MICROSTEEL primarily creates cobalt based superalloys, known as Alacrite™ (Stellite™). They show excellent friction, corrosion and high temperature resistance. Our expertise also extends to iron and nickel based alloys. We can also rely on our design expertise to develop specific alloys.

  • Cobalt based superalloys: Alacrite™, Virium, Stellite™*
  • Fe- and Ni- based alloys: Duplex, Superduplex, Inconel®
  • Development of special alloys

Fields of application

Centrifugal casting is used in any area that requires fine, uniform and compact mechanical parts.

  • Aeronautics
  • Power generation (oil & gas, nuclear…)
  • Defense
  • Motor sports
  • Industries
  • Steel industry
  • Food industry
