EN 1563 (Nodular iron)
Wheel hubs, hydraulic castings, differential housings, bearing housings, brake calibres, rocker arms and with financial benefit this grade often replaces welded and forged constructions.
Castings for wind power, forest- and contractors’ machines, valves, brakes, clutch, consoles, pressure tanks, housings for high pressure hydraulic equipment, cooling components and in general for use at temperatures down to -20ºC where guaranteed impact strength is important.
High pressure hydraulic valve, components for trucks, forest-, agricultural and contractors’ machines, large diesel engines, rocker arm bearings, bearing housings and covers.
Solution Strengthened Ferritic (SSF) spheroidal graphite iron. Moderate strength nodular iron with high ductility. Due to its small variation in mechanical properties it is used where improved machinability and productivity is wanted.
High pressure pump housings, clutch housings, universal joints, housings for hydraulic engines, gear wheels and hydraulic cylinders.
Cranks, machine components and tools, that are exposed to large dynamic and static loads.
