What We Do

Permanent Mold Chill Casting

_BF_8130

A Custom Process

The permanent mold process, sometimes referred to as a “Chill Cast Process”, has a number of advantages over other casting or fabricating techniques.

Permanent mold castings have a much tighter grain boundary allowing for much higher conductivity levels than sand castings, routinely exceeding 98% IACS, which we guarantee as a minimum. In addition, as the part is homogeneous, the possibility of hot spots or poor connections are eliminated.

We only charge for the net weight of the casting as it goes to the machine shop; we do not charge for gates and/or risers. Should a project require machining, the only charge is for the metal sent to our state-of-the-art CNC department. Lastly, many larger holes and inserts can be cast in place, further reducing machining time.
