[center]“Gravity casting is done in ceramic molds, sand,
permanent casting and also in investment or lost wax casting.
The gravity casting process was started with common steel
after successful implementation it was further tried on heat
resistance super alloys. With recent development and with more
refined methods today even titanium alloys are being cast using
the gravity casting method and using ceramic crucibles. The use
of desired mold designs and also specially made unique
designs enable a reduction in the metal cast to yield the given part.
This also helps in reducing the amount of energy that is used in
making such casting articles.
With new developments, today even computerized control of the
vacuum pressure and rate is possible. This enables the user to
control the filling rate. This makes casting of high quality metals
like and viscous metals like metal matrix and composites of
aluminum casting possible. This gravity casting method is used
to produce casting worth of more than $200 million. The industry
is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years due to the increase
in production of automotive exhaust manifolds in stainless steel.”
