Pacific Steel Casting Company Engineering
Technology Designed to Shorten Your Production Cycle
From the design stage through testing and production we work closely with you to share the essential data—going from concept to model in a matter of hours. In that time we are able to produce computer simulations for solidification and stress analysis while performing other essential structural tests.
Whether it’s anticipating wear and usage scenarios or working with you to analyze and evaluate your product production considerations, we make sure your expectations are integrated into the workflow at the initial design steps to achieve:
- Strong collaboration between you and our design engineers
- A virtual view into your project with Concurrent Engineering which means you work directly with our design engineers, exchange files, and confer on specification changes through the entire design cycle
- Flawless coordination with your sales representative as your primary contact to keep you informed each step of the way, from order to delivery
Visual Simulation / Modeling Software
It is essential that the product designer and our engineers be in close agreement during every phase of the design process to deliver the desired quality result.
We practice a collaborative approach – Concurrent Engineering – using modeling software that gives you a view into the design steps leading up to the patterning phase.
Computer assistance and tools also provide for rapid prototyping and aid in critical analysis steps that yield shortened development cycles
Technology and Experience Focused
Design specifications and other requirements are carefully reviewed from inception. Every casting request is handled as a custom job.
Molds must have properly placed and sized risers to feed liquid metal into casting during solidification.
The flow analysis process analyzes casting and gating design to predict and minimize flow-related defects such as misruns, oxide formation, or mold erosion due to excessive velocities during filling.
