There are many types of iron includ gray Iron, ductile Iron and malleable Iron which are widely used in Sand Casting process. These types of iron have good mechanical properties and are relatively inexpensive, so they are commonly used in products that require thicker walls, such as pumps and valves.
Carbon Steel, Alloy Steel & Stainless Steel
Steel is an alloy made up of iron with typically a few tenths of a percent of carbon to improve its strength and fracture resistance compared to other forms of iron. Many other elements may be present or added. (by Wikipedia)
This allows them to have nice features like Strength, Hardness, Toughness, Corrosion Resistance, Wear Resistance, Hot Hardness, Hardenability, Machinability, forgeability and more. We use steel to manufacture products for a variety of industries through processes such as Investment Casting, CNC Machining, Forging, Roll Forming,etc.
Aluminium alloys are widely used in a range of industries where light weight or corrosion resistance is required. There are two principal classifications, namely casting alloys and wrought alloys.
At Gambo Industry, the casting alloys designations we common use include ADC12, 355.0,356.0, a356.0, 380.0 and A380. the wrought alloys designations we common use include 2024, 5052, 6061, 6063, 7075.
Copper Brass & Bronze
At Gambo Industry, we typically use copper and brass in cold drawing and extrusion. The commonly used are C10100, C12200, C28000, C38000 and C38500 brass. They are used to produce plates, tubes and profiles. We normally use bronze in casting. For more informations on copper alloys products please visit Gambo Metals.
We typically use zinc alloys in die casting which include ac41a, #7 and ag40a etc. Zinc alloys are used to produce door hardware, LED light housings, gears, electrical cases and other housings. Contact Gambo Industry to learn more about our available zinc alloys for die casting application.
In order to meet the requirements of customers as much as possible, a variety of other materials are available which include but not limited to plastic and rubber, etc. Contact us today our engineers would love to help you find the one you need.
