Assembly analysis/casting integration
We work closely with our customers to identify cost-saving opportunities through methodical evaluation, ingenuity, and decades of expertise casting parts and integrating them into assemblies. We work with companies to help improve their profitability through our unparalleled suite of cost-saving solutions.
We can successfully reproduce a component developed elsewhere using 3D scanning, enabling us to analyze the design. Our specialists are well-versed in the science of production. Before we replicate your product, we check, measure, and test it thoroughly. We can analyze chemical and metallographic properties to pinpoint materials and post-production techniques used. Following a thorough examination, we engage with our clients to devise a feasible plan of action for moving forward with manufacturing.
Prototypes help evaluate the manufacturing process efficiency and provide a realistic preview of how an item will appear, feel, handle, and function. We make functional zinc prototypes as well as non-working ones to show to potential investors.
