Do you have a specific request for a casting? We can select the best high-grade alloy for the client's specific situation by working with them to come up with ideas. This way, we can help you select the optimum type of material and geometry for castings. Consider, for example, the degree of corrosion resistance required for a specific application. Please feel free to contact Fenix Industries and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Materials for Castings
At Fenix Industries, we specialize in casting high-quality castings in both stainless steel and non-ferrous alloys. With years of experience and expertise, we deliver castings that meet the specific requirements of various applications and industries.
Non-ferrous castings are made by melting alloys that do not contain iron. For our non-ferrous castings, we use high-quality materials, such as aluminum bronze (including ASTM B148), bronze, tin bronze, aluminum, manganese aluminum bronze, and brass. These alloys offer excellent properties in terms of durability, corrosion resistance, and mechanical strength.
Non-ferrous castings often weigh less than stainless steel. This makes them suitable for applications where weight reduction is important. However, it is important to note that the choice of material for a casting depends on various factors, including the specific application and required properties. For example, aluminum offers a good combination of strength, lightweight, and corrosion resistance, while bronze provides excellent wear resistance and sliding properties.
Stainless Steel Casting
Stainless steel castings are made by melting stainless steel alloys and casting them into specific shapes. For our stainless steel castings, we use various materials, including Duplex. An important feature of Duplex is its high resistance to corrosion, making it ideal for applications in the chemical industry, shipbuilding, and the oil and gas industry.
Additionally, stainless steel castings also provide good mechanical properties, including strength and toughness. They can withstand high temperatures, pressures, and mechanical loads, making them suitable for heavy industrial applications.
Mold Types for Castings
At Fenix Industries, we offer various options for the mold types of the castings we produce. Different applications and requirements can lead to different preferences for the mold type. Therefore, we offer you the choice between hand molding and 3D sand molding.
Hand molding is a traditional method where an experienced craftsman manually performs the molding process. This method allows for the creation of complex shapes and unique designs with a high degree of flexibility. Hand molding is ideal for custom or unique castings where precision and craftsmanship are required.
We also offer the option of 3D sand molding. This advanced technique uses a 3D model of the desired casting to create a sand mold with automated machines. This method enables faster production of castings.
Want to know more?
Fenix Industries creates castings for many different applications and industries. These can include machine parts, engine blocks, valve covers, cylinder heads, filter housings, wear rings, cap nuts, and other large or complex castings.
The casting process is tailored to customer demand and will not be the same in every situation. For example, our sand casting process offers great freedom in size, shape, and material choice. If you have a product that you want to cast in a series, then gravity die casting may be a solution.
