ADI Specifications

ASTM A536-84

  • adi-specifications-1.png
  • adi-specifications-2.png

Austempered Ductile Iron castings ( ADI castings) are manufactured by heat treating ductile cast iron; small quantities of nickel, copper and molybdenum are added to enhance hardenability. ADI castings offer exceptional strength-to-weight ratios, with excellent fracture resistance and fatigue strength. ADI castings density is 10% less than steel, so they're an excellent replacement for steel forgings. Replacing steel forgings with ADI castings also saves weight. ADI castings provide great design flexibility; they offer unique combinations of noise-damping properties, high strength, and wear resistance

Markets that are heavy users of this technology include:

  • Construction and Mining Equipment
  • Material Handling
  • AG Implement and Equipment
  • Automotive
  • Heavy Truck
  • Railroad

Typical applications include:

  • Timing Gears
  • CV Joints
  • Steering Knuckles
  • Sprockets, Rollers, Idlers
  • Suspension Housings and brackets
  • Wear Plates
  • Wheel Hubs
  • Control Arms
  • Plow Points
  • Hitches
  • Crankshafts
  • Flanged shafts
