Advantages and disadvantages of casting

Casting advantages: It is possible to produce parts with complex shapes, especially for complex internal cavities. 2. Wide adaptability, metal materials commonly used in industry can be cast, several grams to several hundred tons. 3. Wide range of raw materials, low prices, such as scrap, scrap, chips and so on. 4. The shape and size of the casting are very close to the parts, reducing the amount of cutting and belonging to no cutting. 5. Widely used, 40%~70% in agricultural machinery and 70%~80% in machine tools are castings.
Casting disadvantages: 1. Mechanical properties are not as good as forgings, such as coarse structure, many defects, and so on. 2. In sand casting, single-piece and small-scale production, labor intensity of workers. 3. The casting quality is unstable, the process is many, the influencing factors are complex, and many defects are easily generated.

Casting is a process in which a molten metal liquid is poured into a mold and cooled to solidify to obtain a desired shape and performance. Casting is a common manufacturing method, with low manufacturing cost and high process flexibility. It can obtain complex shapes and large castings, and it occupies a large proportion in mechanical manufacturing, such as machine tools account for 60-80%, cars account for 25%, and tractors account for 50 to 60%.
