The ability to accurately reverse engineer existing castings is essential to any modern foundry. Reverse engineering could be required for a variety of reasons ranging from replication of an old casting where original patterns have been lost to improving mechanical performance or learning from an existing design to replicate or improve it. Whatever the reason, … Read more
A wealth of metal casting experience
Modern foundries are involved in ever more complex and challenging projects with more demanding geometry, specialist alloys and very specific performance specifications. At NovaCast, we have met this challenge by enhancing the core casting technologies at our UK foundry and by forging partnerships with specialist foundries offering a very wide range of casting options.
The flexibility of this approach allows our design engineering team to optimise production by selecting the casting process that will deliver the specified component performance at the best possible price.
Casting processes at our disposal now include sand, shell mould, gravity & pressure die, investment, silica sol and lost foam casting. With materials ranging from specialist aluminium and copper-based alloys to high-grade stainless steels, NovaCast has the ability to support our customers’ most demanding requirements.
