CASTING & MACHINING

CASTING

 

From £350.- (no VAT)

                                                                                     

Why use Casting?

 

  • Produce complex shapes that would be expensive if machined from billet
  • Reverse Engineering of existing Cast component
  • Generate components that have multiple voids for fluid or air flow 
  • Create sculptures for displays or decoration

 

What have we used this on previously?

 

  • Gearbox Casings
  • Cylinder Heads
  • Cam Covers
  • Induction components
  • Race Car hub and uprights

 

What do we include in the cost? 

 

  • Onsite visit to scan component if required
  • Component Design and Analysis if required
  • CAD creation for build
  • Mold and Core design
  • Final Molds
  • Cast components
  • Post process assembly and testing
  • Material testing samples and reports if required

 

How long does it take?

 

  • Scanning and generation of a CAD file is usually completed under two weeks depending on scanner availability.
  • Design and creation of molds usually takes around four weeks to complete
  • A test casting without machining can take between one and two weeks to produce

 

MACHINING

 

From £350.- (no VAT)

                                                                                     

Why use Machining?

 

  • Finish surface machining of a cast component
  • Modification of existing component
  • Final surface finishing of a new component from billet 
  • Production of molds for Composite or Casting projects
  • Generating bucks for bodywork
  • Creating sculptures out of high density foam

 

What have we used this on previously?

 

  • LMP, F1, F2 and Time Attack car bodywork manufacture
  • Gearbox Casings, Cylinder Heads and Cam Covers 
  • Induction components for creation of new castings and molds
  • Kit Car Chassis and transmission components
  • RoPs (Roll Cage) components
  • Brackets

 

What do we include in the cost? 

 

  • Onsite visit to scan component if required
  • Component Design and Analysis if required
  • CAD creation for build
  • Technical Drawing Files
  • Final machined components

 

How long does it take?

 

  • Depending on component complexity and design, machining can be undertaken within a week
