Reaching complex geometries
If your products have complicated shapes, casting might be the solution.
With our supplier network, you will benefit from specialised factories that are experts in their specific field of work. This means that you will be ensured high-quality parts at all times.
Amongst your casting options are:
Die casting – good for high volumes
Die casting offers low unit prices but carries high tooling costs. This means that the production volume should be high to justify using this method.
Gravity casting – sensible for medium volumes
If your parts need heat treatment to be more robust, you should use gravity casting. Heat treatment is not possible for e.g. die cast parts.
Sand casting –suitable for low volumes
The low production and tooling cost that follows using this method, makes it useful for low volumes. Furthermore, you can achieve complex geometries.
Lost wax casting – reach complex geometries and near-net shapes
With lost wax casting you will reach high levels of consistency and near-net shapes. This means less need for post-processing.
What is metal casting?
Metal casting is a manufacturing process that involves pouring molten metal into a mould. With this processing technique, you can create complex shapes and components.
The method, dating back thousands of years, has evolved into a sophisticated method and is now widely employed in modern industries.
Metal casting is cost-effective for large production volumes, is useable for a wide range of metals, and can produce complex geometries. Because of all these advantages, it is a widely used technique in a range of industries, from automotive to energy to construction.
