MetalTek customers realize performance improvement and cost reduction by working with our extensive engineering and metallurgy staff:
Concurrent Engineering / Design for Manufacture
MetalTek is uniquely positioned to recommend the optimal manufacturing method during your design phase, because we offer them all. Whether it is tooling design, net shaping
, or a single casting that avoids fabrication, we can help select the best long term, cost effective, method of manufacture during your design phase.
We can describe countless examples of converting forgings or multi-piece fabrications to single-piece castings to remove customers' manufacturing complexity and cost. Maybe one of those would be a fit for you!
Solidification and Flow Modeling
The latest computer modeling tools for solidification and fluid dynamics through all casting processes help you bring parts to the market fast and eliminate problems before they get to the shop floor.
We will bring our expertise to you. We conduct numerous casting schools throughout the year, sharing our depth of casting and processing knowledge. Contact your MetalTek rep
