Broad range of investment cast valve trim components
When a leading manufacturer of heavy industrial valves was urgently pressed to develop a new investment casting source, they came to MetalTek. To support customer requirements, MetalTek designed, sourced, and first article approved some 125 new wax injection tools in less than 12 months with a 95% first pass yield. In addition, 240 transfer tools were delivered at once. They were identified, analyzed for process compatibility, and placed into production to support ongoing OEM and replacement part production. A change that was potentially devastating to the valve OEM’s customer service ability became transparent to their customers, there were no valve shipments missed, and the project was completed four months ahead of schedule.
