Cost Effective Near-Net Shaped Compressor Cases
Shaping and internal metal soundness have always been a challenge for medium to large structural castings. MetalTek International provides a solution to this need by combining near net shaping capabilities with the superior centrifugal process. One time use investment shells allow MetalTek to provide OD features that customers and markets demand. Because large features are cast in, machining and processing costs are significantly reduced compared to fabrications and hog-outs. Producing these OD features with the centrifugal process provides superior metallurgical and structural integrity throughout the part wall, a perfect fit for high temperature and pressure applications. Shelling costs are low, making Near-Net Shaping from MetalTek the best value for medium to high volume programs.
