Why do steel castings fail? Hint: “Product defect” is not the number one answer. While most believe parts fail because of defects in manufacturing, there are many reasons castings can fail, including:
· Product abuse
· Poor design
· Poor manufacture
· Incorrect material selection
With a knowledgeable engineering team, state-of-the-art equipment and technologies, and a variety of materials poured, your castings provider can help you use the manufacturing process to optimize casting performance.
For an in-depth, technical discussion on why castings fail, view Raymond Monroe’s webinar, “Understanding Steel Castings Failures.” Raymond, executive vice president of Steel Founders’ Society of America (SFSA), has graciously given Badger Alloys permission to share this webinar with our customers and contacts.
