Vertical centrifugal casting machines can be used to cast both ferrous and non-ferrous materials, and come equipped standard with water cooled shafts and variable speed drives. Vertical machines are often chosen to produce castings that are wider in diameter than they are taller in height.

The vertical process is also used for the semi-centrifugal process in which castings are not purely cylindrical in shape. These include castings that require a taper, are flanged on both ends or have other special features to take into consideration.

Vertical Centrifugal Casting is well suited to the following applications:

  • Ball Valve Balls
  • Electric Motor Rotors
  • Welding Rods
  • Gear Blanks
  • Gears
  • Flanges
  • Bearings
  • Bushings
  • Sheaves
  • Rolls
  • Crusher/Pulverizer Rolls
  • Steel Mill Rolls
  • Forming Rolls
  • Bi-Metal Steel Rolls
