Sub-Contract Services

Castings Technology offers the following services on a sub-contract basis to support the metals’ manufacturing industry. Please note that preferential rates are available to our Members.

CMM and laser scanning

Ideal for breakdown or legacy components where pattern equipment may be obsolete or unsuitable for use in production. This equipment can be used to establish machining datums or final dimensional inspection criteria.

Mould design and pouring simulation

To achieve a casting which is always “right first time”

3D sand printed moulds and cores

Produced directly from a CAD design drawing. This capability offers cost effective, high dimensional accuracy and closer tolerances when compared with traditional sand moulding techniques. Core production is available to support hybrid moulding requirements or flexible design modifications.  Castings Technology can also offer short lead time capability.

Stereolithographic patterns

Deliver ultra-flexible design capabilities saving cost and time. They can be used to convert multi-part assemblies into single integrated cast components often eliminating flanges, joints and welded assembles.
