Permanent Mold Casting: Process & Advantages

Permanent mold casting utilizes custom reusable molds that are filled using gravity or controlled pressurization. Permanent molds offer stability and accuracy for indefinite use, making it an ideal option for consistent production of high precision components over an extended production lifetime.

The reusable permanent molds used for castings can provide dramatically shortened lead times, and eliminate the costly production associated with other metal tooling processes. Electronic files are sent directly to high speed CNC machines for the milling of the tooling. These mold profiles offer a substantially longer usable life than many other casting options.

Permanent Mold Castings for Automotive & Aerospace Applications

Permanent mold casting is used heavily in the automotive and aerospace industries to create parts such as:

  • Gears
  • Suspensions
  • Fuel injection housings
  • Engine pistons
