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.

Dual Faceplate Machines

The Dual Faceplate machine utilizes a mold clamped between two faceplates. These machines are generally used for the production of short in length castings.

The dual faceplate machines are commonly used for lining babbitt bearings and tubes, sleeves and liners.


These horizontal centrifugal casting machines are used to babbitt line bearing shells. The machine
utilizes two face plates. They have many holes accurately drilled so that three round centering
bosses of the proper diameter can be screwed into the proper holes. These diameters are arranged
so that the outside of the bearing shell or fixture holding the shell will be aligned by the three bosses.
The idler face moves over a distance of four or six inches to clamp and unclamp the bearing shell.

CCMCOs Model CB’s have been supplied all over the world and provide a very functional dual faceplate machine design. The Model CB line supplies machinery in range of 5″ Max Shell Diameter X 5″ Maximum shell length all the way up to 45″ Max Shell Diameter X 45″ Max. Shell Length. Need something for bigger shells? The Our CB machines utilizes a functional dual faceplate machine design.
The Model CB machine line supplies machinery in a range of 5″ Maximum Shell Diameter X 5″ Maximum shell length up to 45″ Maximum Shell Diameter X 45″ Maximum Shell Length. Have a larger bearing to line?

When the shells to be babbitted have odd configurations, the entire sheII and fixture assembly should
be carefully balanced.
