Rely On Our fast turnaround times
We have the systems in place to make high-quality work with fast turnaround times. The graphite system eliminates the expense of metal tooling. Tooling is computer generated and fed directly to our high speed CNC Mills, where the graphite tool is cut.
The speed in which graphite can be machined allows for rapid engineering changes, often in as little as hours, as opposed to weeks or months like other methods. Our expertise means that you can receive a raw casting from a 3D digital file in as little as two weeks!
why choose graphite permanent molds?
Graphite is a very stable material: it does not warp, twist or check when introduced to molten metal. We can cast parts with a higher degree of accuracy than sand or iron processes. The final castings are close to the American Diecast tolerances and provides a surface finish better than 125 RMS.
Graphite can also be stored indefinitely without changing shape, rusting, oxidizing or deteriorating in any way. This process will deliver high tolerances, cost effectiveness, and repeatability.
