Centrifugal castings, an alternative to forgings

Why choose centrifugal casting?

It is a more economical process: less metal is required to produce optimized profiles therefore the production time is reduced. Moreover, centrifugal castings have better characteristics such as a better dimensional stability and reduced internal tensions.

LBI offers components with optimized shapes thanks to our specific tools for several sectors such as nuclear, defence, shipbuilding, machine tools...
We elaborate the alloys according to your need (international standard or your specification) in order to reach the mechanical and physical characteristics that are specific to a particular application: magnetic permeability, corrosion resistance…
