The Institute of Metal Technology offers consumers the technology of casting into metal and combined forms of chromium cast iron parts under a commercial agreementr with technical assistance or a license agreement.
Abrasive wear is the main cause of failure of machine parts and mechanisms in the mining, construction, road and agricultural industries. Most parts of crushing and grinding equipment operate under shock loads (the size of the initial grinding particles is 20-5 mm), therefore, chromium cast iron is required to work under such conditions, which has high values ​​of impact strength and wear resistance.

Increasing the service life of parts of mills and crushers is possible through the use of specially developed at the Institute of complex alloy cast irons and methods for their casting - into metal and combined forms using heat-resistant fabric as a protective separating coating.

Compositions of synthetic wear-resistant chromium cast irons IChKh18VN and IChKh18VM and technologies for casting parts for crushing and grinding equipment have been developed.

A technology has been developed for casting wear-resistant parts from IChKh into metal molds.

Technologies have been developed for casting parts from IChKh, depending on the conditions of their work.

Based on the developed technologies, it is possible to manufacture castings of any complexity, blanks or parts from high-chromium cast irons according to customer drawings.

Advantages and Innovations
The technology provides an increase in labor productivity and an increase in the accuracy of castings, as well as an increase in the wear resistance of parts due to the production of a finely dispersed structure. Compared with IChKh28N2 cast iron, the developed chromium cast irons IChKh18VN and IChKh18VM have a number of advantages:
- increased wear resistance under dry friction conditions due to a decrease in the size of carbides, predominantly austenitic structure, and an increase in impact strength;
- lower cost due to the reduction of Cr content in cast irons and the use of alloyed steel scrap;
- no need for heat treatment.
