Rapid aluminium casting process Direct from 3D CAD model data
Case Study 2
To manufacture 32 rapid prototype gearbox sets cast in aluminium directly from the clients 3D CAD data. The castings were then fully CNC machined ready for customer assembly and long term testing. Delivery to be completed within 5 weeks.
The same 3D model data is utilized to carry out the CNC machining operations
The castings were produced from the customers 3D CAD data using our rapid investment casting technique. Following full inspection of all the castings on our CMM (co-ordinate measuring machine) the gearboxes were fully CNC machined to the clients 3D CAD data and drawings. The clients quality requirements and delivery schedule were met.
Rapid Prototyping techniques allowed this gearbox assembly to be produced within 3 weeks
