Controllable Pitch Hub - Large MetalTek bronze centrifugal components in marine applications have eliminated fabrication costs, and defects only found after machining.
Fancase Mandrel - The use of centrifugal castings in tooling of large round components has increased tool life by 5x compared to fabricated assemblies, because of a centrifugal casting's tendency to retain its round shape.
Fine Machined Ring - Fine machined rings in hydro turbine applications offered increased product life and helped avoid unplanned maintenance events.
Food Processing Grinder - Very large 280# investment castings replaced fabrications, reduced labor cost, and provided product consistency for a food processing customer.
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.
Sandia National Labs - Very large investment castings provided dimensional stability that fabrications could not in applications like energy research.
Shaft Sleeves - Early alloy development and homogeneous grain structure have established MetalTek as the world's leading producer of naval shaft sleeves.
Stellarator Casting - Proprietary alloys developed for extreme cryogenic temperatures of 77°K helped make castings for the fusion research Stellarator possible.
Tunner Support Arm - MetalTek produced radiographic quality box-beam support components up to 14' long in alloy 17-4 for the military's Tunner program to reduce weight in a heavy cargo application.
Waterjet Rotor - The unique combination of very large intricate investment casting and a highly corrosion-resistant alloy was the solution in a new marine propulsion system.
