A major first-tier supplier of aerospace components designs and purchases tooling for hot forming and super-plastic forming of Inconel and Titanium aerospace components. The supplier was experiencing cracking in tools that necessitated weld repair or replacement of tooling before program completion, seriously jeopardizing program timing and component supply. Engineers and metallurgists at MetalTek’s Carondelet Division worked with the customer to review tooling designs for material selection and gating. The focus was to improve tooling machinability, increase performance, and reduce thermal cycle cracking. All parties agreed to the proper gating and design strategies, and MetalTek delivered custom design cast product within four weeks of order receipt, allowing the customer to meet program timing requirements.
