Bi-Metal Canister Development For Nuclear - Bi-metal designs including an inner core of aluminum bronze and outer shell of pure copper provided the strength and environment protection for developmental container designs.
Fan Blade Tooling Design - When a turbine customer's tool source went out of business, MetalTek leveraged our ability to produce patterns in-house, pour super alloys, and manage a tight time line to avoid production interruption.
Net Shape Compressor Case - MetalTek's unique Net Shaping reduced machining cost of flight turbine compressor cases by up to 80%.
Net Shape Examples - O.D. features are directly cast to reduce subsequent machining and processing cost. Customers have discovered that the small one-time tooling costs have made net shaping practical even for low volume applications.
No Weld On HPLT Components - Customers who have incurred high costs and delays for weld repair have seen it go away completely by calling out MetalTek's HPLT cast process for no-weld requirements.
Patternless Molding - Countless customers have saved time and tooling cost by taking advantage of MetalTek's patternless mold creation capability for low volume sand castings.
Rapid Prototyping Turbine Engine - The combination of SLA and Net Shaping allowed a turbine customer to cut development time by using an actual production casting for early product development.
Spiral Cone For Orange Juice Centrifuge - Rotating parts using sand castings are often nearly impossible to balance. So a food processing customer employed MetalTek centrifugals for their application because metal is more homogeneous and evenly balanced.
