Trunnion Type Machines

Trunnion type machines use a mold or flask that is supported and rotated by four trunnion wheels. These machines are used for producing castings that have lengths longer that their diameter.

Common castings produced on trunnion type machines include bushings, bearings, cylinder liners, piston rings, pipe, and steel tubes and sleeves.

De Lavaud Type Machines

The deLavaud type machines are used in the production of ductile iron water pipe. These machines utilize metal molds, which are water cooled by means of a water jacket.
Ductile Iron Pipe plants include much more that just the centrifugal pipe machines. Other necessary equipment for a successful pipe plant includes molds, mold preparation equipment, annealing furnace pipe cleaning station, pipe coating station and pipe handling systems. CCMCO can either provide the complete plant or individual items.

Vertical Casting Machines

Vertical centrifugal casting machinery spins parts about a vertical axis. Parts are commonly of shorter height than diameter. The great benefit of spinning about a vertical axis is that practically any size and shape of casting can be spun about a vertical axis. Common castings poured in vertical machinery are rings and ball valve balls. Generally, vertical machines are divided into two categories, Stand-Alone machines, which can be easily added into a foundry with limited foundation work and Pit Mounted machinery, which are mounted below floor level and require a foundry to do substantial foundation work.

The question commonly asked is, can a casting that is commonly poured statically be poured vertically, even if it is a nonstandard shape. The answer is yes. Why pour castings in a vertical spinning machine that can be poured statically? The primary reasons are to obtain better quality castings, to produce castings more economically and to cast a part that cannot be satisfactorily cast statically. Reduction in cleaning room costs and higher yield are common reasons why foundries pour castings using vertical centrifugal casting machinery. Steel castings that are statically poured with a yield of 40 to 55% can be centrifugally cast with a yield closer to between 65 and 85%.

Company details

Nathan Janco founded Centrifugal Casting Machine Company in 1940. “Nat was universally acknowledged as a pioneer in the field of casting machine design and one of the foremost authorities on the subject of centrifugal casting.  During WWII, Nat was the centrifugal casting expert on the U.S. War Metallurgy Committee.  Nat held several U.S. patents and was the designer of numerous horizontal, vertical and face-plate machines, as well as special purpose machines for high production.   He is the author the book Centrifugal Casting. Nathan Janco passed away in 2006 at the age of 95.

In 1980 Janco sold Centrifugal Casting Machine Co., Inc. to Tom McKee, a Tulsa businessman.  McKee worked with a sales team and a group of engineers to grow CCMCO into a world renowned company.  Under McKee leadership,CCMCO expanded into China and into high production markets such as ductile iron pipe, soil pipe and cylinder liners.  Tom McKee passed away in 2003 and CCMCO continues to operate as a family owned business.  Sue McKee, Tom’s widow is Chairman and two of his three children are active in the company.
