Custom Metal Casting Capabilities

Full Service In Half The Time

Ask a typical precision metal manufacturer what lead times you’ll get and you’ll hear anywhere from weeks to months—or more. But why settle for typical?

We’ve discovered that the key to investment casting is to fully utilize its flexible capabilities, incorporating as much value into the cast piece as possible. So, that’s what we offer you.

  • For new product introductions, we provide unprecedented lead-times to meet the most aggressive launch schedules.
  • We offer low, medium, and high-volume runs according to your schedule, for true no-inventory, just-in-time delivery.
  • You get innovation as standard—our experts aren’t riding a wave of innovation, they’re creating it.
  • Our in-house operations enhance your project, including machining, heat treating, final finishing, powder coating, and assembly.
  • And added services including design for manufacturability consulting, tool building, and rapid prototyping help pave your way to success.

Capabilities. Not compromises.
