In 2011, our customer (a major OEM in the pump mfg sector involved in the petroleum, gas and food industries) faced a major quality issue with this complex shape impeller. The former foundry supplier used to supply this part with a minimum of 6 months lead time with parts that were often rejected at the machining stage. Resulting in production problems for our customer’s customer.
When our customer decided to transfer the production of this part to BSL Casting, we right away identified the source of the problem related to the design and characteristics of the pattern tooling. We then proceeded to make the major modifications required of the tooling and, as of the first order we have been able to deliver the parts within 10-12 weeks (instead of 6 months).
In the months following the initial delivery we have refined our process in making this part, resulting in an improved quality surface finish on the part.
