CASTING CONTEST


WINNERS


Casting Conversion Reduces Production Post by 75%, Receives Military Award


This casting is a structure housing for an advanced guidance system with military applications. Previously fabricated from four machined segments, Barron Industries is investment casting this component in A356-T6 allot from SLA quickcast prototype patterns. Post cast operations include 5-axis machining, radiographic and penetrant inspection to AMS 2175 Grade B and pressure leak testing.


The former method of manufacture was time consuming and


costly. Barron Industries is producing this as a single piece casting at 25% of the original cost of production enabling significant cost savings. Additionally, the investment casting process has provided the customer with a great deal of design flexibility not previously available. Barron’s investment casting solution has been embraced by the customer as an outstanding solution to meet their cost targets and functionality requirements.

Aristo-Cast Casts ’65 Volkswagen Custom Steering Wheel Wins Automotive Award


Aristo-Cast was called upon to address a one-of-a-kind steering wheel for a custom 1965 Volkswagen. Products of this nature are typically die-cast, but due to the intricate geometry of this custom design, lengthy lead times and cost, die-casting was not a viable option. A 3D printed plastic steering wheel was initially tried by the car’s owner, only to find that version of the steering wheel breaking under road stresses. Aristo-Cast was contacted to manufacture the wheel in aluminum, and did so in 10 days, which included heat treatment and coating to the customer’s specified color.


PART: Steering Wheel Size: 15.77 x 15.77 x 4.40 In. Alloy: A357 Aluminum T6 Condition Notes: Casting Conversion from die casting
