Prototype Casting offers different processes to manufacture your parts.

The ability to select the most appropriate process based on the design requirements of the part allows us to tailor our solutions to our customer’s needs. From Rapid Investment casting using a lost wax process, or a Printed Sand Mold casting which both are suitable for making smaller quantities of parts to limited production via Rubber Plaster Mold or Air Set Precision Sand casting, and Die Casting services which allow us to make production quantities, we have a process that fits the job.

 

When the part is too large for our lost wax investment casting process, and the number of parts doesn’t justify hard tooling, we can offer castings using one of our core processes.  We can cut soft tooling and then cast in Precision Sand or Rubber Plaster Mole.  We can also utilize a printed sand mold process. Additionally, we are fully capable of machining parts from stock.

 

Each process we offer has advantages and limitations. Our sales staff and engineers analyze each job to ensure we’re using the appropriate process for the job based on a number of factors.
