The term “bimetallic” indicates that two different metals are inseparably bonded together in a high-temperature furnace. The two metals are heated in a controlled furnace to temperatures above 2000°F. After the required cycle and melting of the inner alloy the cylinder is removed from the furnace, placed onto centrifugal casting rolls which subject it to rapid high velocity rotation ensuring a uniform inlay dispersion, density, thickness and hardness. Subsequent controlled cooling prevents distortion and transforms metallic structure into a super hard uniform lining in the cylinder bore that is later precision honed to ID specifications. Typical inlay thickness is .050”. Double and triple inlay thicknesses are available for specific applications. We offer several spun cast barrel-lining alloys (inlay) and also bimetallic options that are produced through hot Isostatic pressing (HIP) and single piece CPM10V® lined cylinders.
