Innovative solutions in steel casting parts for the industries
BSL Casting has shared many posts overt the past months, in which we presented successful projects we have completed with our customers over the last 5 years.
However, we have to be honest with each other : It is not always a benefit to convert any part into casting. Let me present a few examples : Parts with simple shapes close to the one of a steel plate or bar are rarely replaced by cast parts because there is no financial benefit.
Also, sometimes the customer requires a limited number of pieces and the pattern cost makes the project not viable moneywise (though certain types of foam pattern are cheap and can be considered).
In the other hand, when a machine shop is looking for a material (or a special thickness or dimension) difficult to get in stock at the steel warehouse, they often turn around and ask a foundry about casting the material and part they need.
Here are some more situations in which fabricators and machine shops are replacing machined or weldment parts by cast parts :
- When machining and assembling operations are generating much material waste;
- When machining operations take much time to make a part; often the case with irregular or complexe shape parts.
- When the environment in which the part is used require an off-standard material :
- When the customer QA department requires :
BSL Casting remains available to analyse any request from you. We will evaluate if worthwhile or not to convert your machined or weldment part into a steel casting.
