Rocket Engine Dome

The benefits of centrifugal casting combined with exotic alloys poured in vacuum makes this high-performance rocket component work. The vacuum casting process is typically used for super alloys when control of exposure to oxygen is critical. MetalTek can centrifugally cast parts in vacuum in sizes up to 42″ (1,070 mm) and pour weights up to 800 lbs. (364 kg). Vacuum casting at Wisconsin Centrifugal is performed using a centrifugal process. In addition to the advantages of casting in vacuum, the inherent high metal integrity delivered by centrifugal casting is realized, including directional solidification, absence of porosity, and O.D. shaping. Vacuum centrifugal casting provides products with very high reliability, often used in aerospace and military applications.
