Frequent questions

What materials can I use in precision casting?

Brass, bronze and special bronzes, nickel silver, beryllium copper, aluminum and precious metals, all free of lead and cadmium. The table of metals indicates the materials most commonly used among the over sixty alloys produced so far, but it is possible to compose special alloys on request.

What kind of finish can I get from precision cast parts?

The parts are normally delivered with smooth surfaces, with an opaque satin finish, with a small residue from the injection channel. Copper alloys (brass, bronze and nickel silver) can be easily soldered with tin or welded with silver alloy, mirror polished with special abrasive wheels, or with...

What materials can be used in photoengraving?

Brass, bronze and special bronzes, nickel silver, beryllium copper, aluminum, common, special and stainless steels. The slabs can have sizes starting from 100 x 300 mm up to 400 x 1000 mm, with thicknesses from 0.03 to 1.2 mm.

What kind of finishing can I get for photoengraved pieces?

The parts are normally delivered "slab", with smooth, smooth-looking surfaces, with two small witnesses (attachments) easily removable. Copper alloys (brass, bronze and nickel silver) can be easily soldered with tin or welded with silver alloy, polished with special abrasive wheels, or with...

What is "chemical photoengraving"?

The chemical photoengraving or photo-cutting is a modern system for cutting and engraving with precision metal plates, even very thin ones, advantageously replacing traditional shearing and engraving operations. The drawing of the requested detail is processed by computer and then "photographed"...

What is the lost wax investment casting?

Lost wax casting or "precision casting" is a particular technique for faithfully reproducing complicated metal parts, even very small ones, advantageously replacing long assembly operations. The original model is faithfully copied with special silicone elastomers and then reproduced in wax. In...

What do you need to make components?

A simple drawing on paper or in the following graphic formats: dwg, dxf (AutoCAD or other software that uses these formats), rhn (Rhinoceros), stl, igs, cdr (Coreldraw), ai (Illustrator), pdf, fh11, tiff, bmp, tga, eps and others. Sometimes a photograph can be enough, if accompanied by the most...

Do molds cost a lot?

Our manufacturing processes do not need molds. For photoengraving and electroforming the plates are masked with a very high definition digital process (xmos). Even precision casting does not require traditional molds, but rather short-lasting rubber and ceramic matrices. At the beginning of...

What minimum quantity can I order?

In photoengraving, only 4 plates (or all the pieces that these can contain). In precision casting, the minimum order is only 12 pieces per item. With laser cutting, the minimum quantity depends on the design and must be calculated. In electroforming, the minimum quantity is 20 adhesive sheets...
