he design and fabrication of a centrifugal casting machine  was  successfully  carried  out.  The  operation  of  the  machine  was  based  on  the  principle  of  centrifugal  force.  

Suitable  design  theory,  analysis  and  calculation  were  adopted carried out in the course of the work. The mold is bolted to the base plate which can rotate at moderate speeds thereby forcing the molten metal against the inner walls of the mold. This machine could be used to cast small engineering components. The centrifugal force on the machine was determined to be 3207.3N, while the required  power  on  the  machine  was  854.7W. 

 A  test  was  carried  out  on  the  fabricated  centrifugal  casting  machine  with  aluminum  alloy  and  the  machine  was  able  to  cast  6kg  of  aluminum  alloy  and  the  casting  was  successful. INTRODUCTION Casting by definition is the process of producing metal shapes by pouring molten metal into moulds of required  form  where  it  is  allowed  to  solidify  on  cooling.  The metal part formed as a result of this operation is called  cast.  Casting  is  as  old  as  the  Roman  Empire.  The  roman  craftsman  started  the  art  of  casting  by  making  two  half  mold,  wedge  them  together  and  carefully  pouring  molten  bronze  into  the  mold  cavity.  This  molten  bronze solidifies on cooling and the cast removed from the mold. Within this method, they were able to make swords in large numbers. Casting hence has been a method by which important metal components are made in large quantity.
