ENGINEERING EXPERTISE

Our dedicated force of highly trained and experienced engineers will work with you from the start of your project all the way to completion. They’ll help you determine the materials and methods that will deliver optimum results for your business.

Mold Flow Simulation & Rapid Prototypes

We utilize a variety of methods to produce rapid prototypes and tooling.

  • The ability to work with CAD/CAM files of any file type.
  • Mold Flow Simulation to show how the mold will fill, solidify, and cool—reducing the risk of defective parts.
  • Value engineering to help remove cost throughout the manufacturing process.
  • 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing, allows us to produce rapid prototypes that help ensure fit before investing in costly tooling and fixtures.

Mobility, new drive technologies and the future of die-casting.

 

Electric and hybrid powertrains are gaining importance. The technological change in the automotive and heavy trucking industry away from the combustion engine towards electrified and other alternative drives also impacts the die casting industry.

Lightweight Castings

Lightweight castings are becoming more critical as industries shift towards powertrain electrification.

Key Benefits of Aluminum Die-Castings

  • Complex
  • High-Quality
  • Thin-Walled
  • Lightweight
  • Good Mechanical and Physical Properties

Die casting is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly manufacturing methods available today. Some of the highest-quality die casting materials are entirely recyclable and meet the tenents of the “reduce, reuse, and recycle” approach.
