2012 Industrial Casting Award
Aluminum casting measures 4.7” x 4.5”x 1.25”
The investment casting process not only produced a main valve body for a two-stage converter for LP-gas engines, but also the tooling needed to cast the complex component. The myriad of cast-in features eliminated extra machining, resulting in huge cost savings.
Aristo-Cast reverse engineered the part to create a solid model file of the tool design using 3D Systems Themo Jet machines to create wax patterns of the tool and all the core pins.
