Only 3 days from CAD data file to prototype, preseries parts.
A total solution package, MCP Metal Part Casting System literally takes the heat out of castings metals.
A new type of automotive gearbox housing requires castings with a multitude of cavities and worm slots. The functionality of the gearbox depends not only on the quality of casting, material density etc., but also on the correct geometrical arrangement of the slots with over 100 measurement points. The prototype and pre-series development perfection phase of the product requires up to as many as ten design changes and modifications before steel tooling to produce the production pressure die castings can be ordered. Other alternative prototype and quick production methods, generally using sand, do not
offer the combination of speed, accuracy and above all surface finish and definition. To obtain pre-series parts in comparative quality would normally mean waiting for production steel tooling with a lead-time of 12 - 16 weeks.
