Cast Iron Cylinder


A manufacturer of air compressor came to us for the casting of a cylinder head that would be part of an air compressor assembly. With our diversified equipment, we were able to easily accommodate the specifications supplied to us by the client. Utilizing our Hunter 20-C 20"x24" flask automated molding machine, Dependable 200 and Dependable 100 shell cores, we created a green sand mold and cast the cylinder head using automotive gray cast iron per SAE G3000. After molding the piece was shot blasted and ground to smooth out any rough edges. We performed quality checks including final inspection, Brinell hardness testing, and visual inspections. This cylinder head weighed 44.5 lbs. and met tolerances of ±1/32". We currently cast 100-200 of these cylinder heads annually, with 4 to 5 week lead times. Warsaw Foundry has almost 90 years of experience in casting knowledge and customer satisfaction. Please see the outline below for complete details of this cast iron cylinder head project.
