Recently tested a centrifuge with a cast aluminum rotor. Cast aluminum is cost effective but presents some challenges. Balance due to voids and sand inclusion are always an issue. Cast aluminum must be heat treated to relieve stress and impart a temper that improves strength. Heat treatment often will cause distortion. Balancing is nearly always required after heat treat and machining.
