T.E-Metal specializes in several casting techniques including Wax Casting, Die Casting, Sand Casting, and Gravity Casting. Each of these methods has its own unique advantages and applications, making them a popular choice for a variety of industries worldwide.
Wax casting is often used to create intricate and highly detailed parts, such as jewelry or dental implants. This technique involves creating a wax model of the part, which is then coated in a ceramic shell before being melted away and replaced with molten metal.
This production method guarantees casting with extremely high precision and excellent surface quality.
Die casting is a highly automated process that can produce large quantities of parts with high precision and consistency. This method involves injecting molten metal into a die or mold, which is then cooled and ejected, creating a finished part.
The production process in pressure castings allows to reach high levels of precision and excellent surface quality, these data make it possible to bring to a minimum the additional machining, which is required to be carried out on the castings in the various stages of production.
The development cost of the molds is expensive compared to other methods, but this casting method is the most suitable for production in large series and at a low cost per unit.
Sand casting is a widely used casting technique that involves creating a mold by packing sand around a pattern or model of the desired part. This method is highly versatile and can be used to produce parts of various shapes and sizes, making it a popular choice for many industries.
The sand used in sand casting is typically made of silica or other materials, and it is mixed with a binder to hold its shape. Once the mold is created, molten metal is poured into it and allowed to cool, solidifying into the final product.
Gravity casting is a casting technique that involves pouring molten metal into a reusable mold or die under the force of gravity.
The gravity casting process starts with the creation of a reusable mold, which is made of materials such as steel, aluminum, or graphite. The mold is then preheated to ensure that the molten metal will fill it uniformly. Once the mold is prepared, molten metal is poured into it and allowed to cool and solidify.
