Whatever the reason, … Read more
However efficient the casting process becomes; lead times will usually be quite long. The introduction of new technologies, such as casting simulation software and 3D Printing has taken time out of the process, but supply chains are increasingly international and while this can reduce costs, transportation must then be added into the time-line.
Recognising the need to optimise service levels to its customers, NovaCast has increasingly offered its established customers a supply chain management service, which involves the production, shipping and storage of cast components. These quality-checked and ready-to-deliver castings are stored at NovaCast’s warehouses and are ready to be delivered anywhere in the world at short notice.
