  • An example of mold tolerances
    This housing for a heavyduty portable magnetic drill weighs 7.16 lb and is highly cored to reduce the material removed during secondary machining. Permanent-mold casting is said to easily mold this complicated double helix, 83-lb auger mechanism for a juicing machine. Secondary finishing gives
  • Not your average carbon copy
    Graphite permanent molding is a niche process used for building high-precision zinc-aluminum alloy parts. Assortment of parts molded in graphite permanent molds. Part being removed from graphite permanent mold showing attached runners and gates. Air-traffic control trackball housing is cast
  • Cost-conscious molding
    Permanent graphite molds and a knowledgeable metal-casting house can help designers of zinc-aluminum-alloy parts go from art to part in less than six weeks. Edited by Jean M. Hoffman Most ZA-12 (zinc-aluminum) alloy parts need little or no secondary machining. However, when necessary, a shop

    fabrication. A brass permanent-mold chill casting for a steering linkage from , Greensburg, Pa., was redesigned from a weldment composed of 10 prefabricated pieces, 19 weld joints, and four bushings. The resulting 9.82-lb component was 10% lighter than the weldment and eliminated some machining
