Recently, centrifugal casting methods by using machining chips have been proposed. Machining chips of metal A are inserted into a spinning mold. Subsequently, the molten metal A is poured into the spinning mold. As a result, the molten metal penetrates into the space between the machining chips. At the same time, the machining chips are partially melted by the heat from molten metal. After the solidification, a ring or pipe shaped cast can be obtained. This may be an eco-centrifugal casting
