Stainless Steel Castings Composition and Microstructure

The term stainless steel (SS) is used to encompass a wide array of materials with varied physical, chemical, and mechanical properties.

For the design engineer, it is essential to identify the different alloys available, their properties and the equivalent casting grades that correspond to the well-known wrought formulations.

In more detail, stainless steel may be categorized according to its microstructure:

Stainless Steel Production and Processing

Stainless steel is a metal that has a lot of applications when it comes to manufacturing various parts for different types of machines and equipment. Stainless steel has strength, durability, wear resistance, and especially outstanding corrosion resistance in a wide range of environments. Stainless Steel is a large family of alloys that contain a variety of elements, primarily iron with chromium and nickel, but may also contain molybdenum, manganese, silicon, vanadium and numerous others. This variety of compositions allows customers to choose an alloy meeting the particular needs of their product.

Different Types of Stainless Steel and Casting Process

Stainless steel casting is a specialized process that results in the casting or shaping of different types of steel. A steel casting foundry produces steel castings, which can be categorized into two major groups, namely alloy and carbon steels. Stainless steel sand casting is a preferred alternative to iron casting when cast irons simply cannot deliver the required strength or the necessary shock resistance for the metal application. Some examples of steel castings that are commonly produced through the casting process include gears, forging presses, valve bodies, hydroelectric turbine wheels, pump castings, engine cylinder blocks marine equipment, turbocharger turbines, and mining machinery.
