China lost wax casting foundry with OEM custom and CNC machining services to provide alloy steel lost wax casting products and other tailor-made metal castings.
Cast alloy steel should be used when the strength of the casting is relatively high and the use of cast iron cannot meet the requirements. However, the fluidity of molten steel of cast steel is not as good as that of cast iron, so the thickness of the pouring structure should not be too small and the shape should not be too complicated. When the silicon content is controlled at the upper limit, the fluidity of molten steel can be improved.
