Fine Machined Ring - Fine machined rings in hydro turbine applications offered increased product life and helped avoid unplanned maintenance events.
Meat Grinding Tube - A meat grinding customer replaced forgings with centrifugals because the multi-directional grain structure of the centrifugal prevented cracking that the unidirectional grain structure of forgings experienced under high stress.
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.
Processing Rolls - MetalTek metallurgists have helped customers select alloys with the correct coefficient of thermal expansion for high temperature corrosive roll applications.
Sigma Blades - By managing sources of part distortion in the manufacturing process and developing a special alloy, MetalTek was able to provide a mixer manufacturer with large components that would fit into an especially tight tolerance envelope.
Special Machining And Tooling - The ability to avoid a weld in critical hot area was only accomplished by devising a way to machine an 8" deep groove in a 12" part.
Valve Cages - A hybrid sand and centrifugal casting process eliminated latent defects and machine scrap by 98% in components for a large valve customer.
