are advantages to cast
tooling vs. other traditional methods of producing tools (machining
from solid blocks of wrought or forged materials). Castings reduce the
amount of machining required and also reduce the amount of material
required to produce the tool. Castings can produce intricate surfaces,
which are difficult to machine. Cast alloys have a different grain
structure than wrought material. This can be advantageous if heat
exposure is involved. Castings allow the production of various shapes
from non-machinable alloys.
welcome any quantities from 1 piece to hundreds, and weights from
ounces to approximately 800 pounds. Duplicast is a “jobbing” foundry.
We can meet tight delivery schedules. We are flexible if changes in
design or delivery are required. We are able to tailor our alloy
chemistries to meet specific needs. We handle a wide range of alloys
including cobalt and iron based alloys.
