Casting Process Selection
Process diversity supported by solidification modeling and fluid dynamics saves you time and money.
Which metalworking process is the best fit for your challenging application?
An intricate investment casting?
A continuous cast bar with a profile that reduces machining?
A net-shape centrifugal?
And how would you know? Partner with the industry's leading supplier who brings a unique combination of diverse processes and technology to support them.
MetalTek International’s Engineering staff employs the latest computer modeling tools to manage solidification and fluid dynamics through all casting processes. This includes Centrifugal, Sand, and Investment. During the modeling process, MetalTek can determine which casting process best fits your needs.
Where speed is king and prototype costs are high, development lead times and learning curves are reduced using these tools. They are especially powerful in helping to optimize stock allowances and pour temperatures to ensure product quality.
Castings can be analyzed on the computer screen before they are in metal. This is to manage potential trouble spots in product geometry, so designs can be optimized for manufacturability and cost control. Customers often come to MetalTek with challenging product designs and tools like these promote continuous improvement and prevent problems before they hit the shop floor.
