Metal casting involves the creation of alloys through the melting and molding of different types of metal. This process plays a vital role in the production of high-quality metals used in mining equipment manufacturing, construction, and various other industries.
Steel is among the most extensively cast metals. It is an alloy of iron and other elements, primarily carbon. Different mixtures produce different types and properties of steel; with the right mixture, extremely tough and corrosion-resistant materials can be produced. Steel is one of the very few metals that serve a wide variety of uses because of its versatility when combined with other materials.
