Machined castings are required if you want to make a metal cast product that is unique. As soon as the mold leaves the factory, the castings aren’t always perfect. We may modify your casting to match your specific requirements thanks to machining. We keep it simple no matter what type of machining you need for your project. To get it up to your specifications, we employ metal components, a tool, and a machine.
Machined Castings as a Workaround
The component is securely secured to the machine table during milling. To create various characteristics on the casting’s face, the cutting tools, which use interchangeable carbide or ceramic inserts, move and spin at the correct speed across the workpiece. On a horizontal or vertical axis, this can be done.
Grinding of Surfaces
It’s used to make a flat surface that’s precise. With non-ferrous castings, the component is held in place by a magnetic plate or a holding fixture. A carborundum grinding wheel, which rotates at a high rate to achieve the desired finish, is used to grind the castings outside edges.
Drilling by Hand
It’s used to make holes in the component by drilling or tapping them. The placement of the holes is determined by custom drilling fixtures or cast dimples that are inserted during casting production.
The final stage of the procedure is intended to ensure that the machining work is up to par with the specifications. During the machining process and after the casting is finished, automated equipment and probes are used to check the casting.
