Precision Machined Iron
Continuous Cast Iron and Precise CNC Machines Deliver Great Results
Continuous cast iron offers many advantages over sand cast iron and other metals, like steel and aluminum. Its fine grained microstructure actually performs like a built-in chip breaker and is significantly more uniform than what is achieved with many other metal casting methods. This has two huge benefits for machinists:
- Tools do not wear as quickly
- There are fewer discontinuities and defects like porosity and centerline shrinkage
Combine the innate benefits of continuous cast iron with a skilled machinist and you have a recipe for high quality finished pistons, bearings, rings and other parts. The machinists in American Iron & Alloys’ CNC Machining Division know how to get the most out of Versa Bar.
