Cylinder Sleeves, made of gray cast-iron, ought to have desired casting and machining qualities, viz. strength, toughness, hardness and wear resistance. These are mainly of two types – Dry sleeves and Wet sleeves. The sleeves are ‘cast-in fit’, force (press) fit or slip fit. The interference between its outer diameter and bore-hole walls depends on fit-type from 0.050 to 0.075 mm. These are available in wide range suitable for light, medium and heavy duty application.
In order to meet with industrial quality standards, we manufacture these sleeves from sand casting and centrifugal casting, which enables us to maintain the uniform hardness all over. Apart from this, we also keep into consideration various factors including distortion-less bore and low thermal expansion to meet with the requirements of our clients. These sleeves are available in semi finished as well as full finished sizes. Cross honing is done on the full finished products to make the inner bore distortion-less. The inner bores are cross honed to provide maximum smoothness to the surface, that in turn reduces friction, when this inner bore is contacted with Piston Rings.
In the centrifugal casting process, the molten metal is poured into a metal mould or die which is revolving at a high speed. The centrifugal force causes the metal to distribute itself evenly around the die. The resulting casting are of much finer grain and free from blow holes or porosity. A further important advantage is that the impurities, being lighter than the iron, are forced centrifugally to the bore surface from which they are removed by machining.
