We offer several different types of castings to meet your requirements:
Best suited for small to medium size parts with higher volume requirements. Advantages include minimal secondary finishing operations, high production runs, economical, tighter tolerances, thin walls, and consistency.
100% recyclable material. In some applications cast parts are preferred over plastic because they offer better strength, tolerate higher temperatures, and have a lower impact on the environment.
Disadvantages for die cast parts are weight (less than 30 grams/1oz) and size restrictions (24 inches/600mm), high initial costs, and some material limitations.
Best suited materials are copper, lead, aluminum, zinc, and tin based alloys
Aluminum parts can be up to 1650 tons.
Best suited for parts that are small, include intricate design, and demand high reliability.
Advantages are accuracy, consistency, tight tolerances, thin walls, finished appearance, complex shapes, variety of alloys, and low material waste.
Disadvantages are increased piece price due to additional manufacturing processes, individual patterns required for each casting (increase tooling costs), and limited dimensions.
Most commonly used alloys are carbon, tool and alloy steel, and multiple grades of Stainless steel.
Aluminum parts sizing ranges from 3g to 5Kgs within L 600mm x H 450mm
Stainless steel sizing ranges from 5g to 70Kgs within L 600mm x H 500mm
Best suited for parts that are simple in design and may be a large size
Advantages include low cost molds, low cost piece price, larger parts, and it produces less waste since material can be added to next run.
Disadvantages include surface finish, limited wall thickness, decreased tolerances, and lower porosity.
Common materials are aluminum alloys, brass alloys, cast iron and cast steel.
Size ranges from 10mm to 3M. 30Kg max for aluminum.
The main advantages of gravity casting are the reusable mold, good surface finish, good dimensional accuracy, and high production rates.
The main disadvantages are high tooling cost, limited to low melting point metals, and short mold life.
Size ranges from 10mm to 1.5M
