The CAST-IT application engineers have compiled their collective knowledge on the following topics:
In-Process Weld Rework
Internal scrap rate in a metalcaster’s shop is a major concern for casting producers and customers. Pragmatic approval of in-process weld rework, as one of the many normal casting finishing processes, has the potential to drive down the internal scrap rate and the resulting high casting costs and lead times.
Solutions to assist in the FAT process to avoid delays or additional testing costs to best enable a responsive supply chain to support defense procurements, minimize PLT and reduce impacts on stock availability.
The casting process has nearly unlimited flexibility compared to other manufacturing processes and is excellent for optimizing designs based on performance and weight requirements rather than processing limitations.
