Precision foundry specializes in advanced industries: defence, medical, aerospace, nuclear, and high-end industrial sectors. Finding a reliable and skilled partner to design your metal alloy parts requires specific criteria. This is justified as your company operates in one of the five major advanced industries.
- High-end industrial
As a qualified precision foundry, it’s crucial for each project to go through the priority step of feasibility criteria. This ensures the quality of all our mandates, as they must adhere to the strictest industry standards.
In this article, we summarize what Vestshell can offer so you have the possibilities in mind for your sector. However, don’t limit yourself. Discussing a new project is always appropriate, as we specialize in various types of prototyping.
Lost Wax investment casting and the DefenCe Sector
The military and defence domain demands unwavering precision and reliability.
- For precise manufacturing, it’s essential to have technologies and equipment compliant with the current standards and requirements of the armed forces (naval, aerial, and land).
- Supporting technical assistance and co-engineering during the initial project phases ensure the success of steel parts and other metal alloy mandates. This guarantees the delivery of various military systems (precision navigation, etc.).
- The ability to develop high-precision castings ensures the proper functioning of weapon systems.
- Expertise in this field allows manufacturing parts for various military vehicles such as armoured vehicles, defence systems, fighters, aircraft, and helicopters.
- Assistance in the design of complex parts ensures the safety and reliability of military equipment.
Medical Industry and the Delicacy of Cast Metal Parts
The medical sector is an innovative nerve center. As a manufacturer and supplier of the highest quality and precision metal parts, flawless performance is necessary. Trust must be unwavering, integrity spotless, and the promise of perfection proven.
Investment casting is particularly suitable for alloy metal parts required in cosmetic and surgical sectors.
- Think of surgical and diagnostic medical tools requiring strict specifications and cosmetic aspects.
- Additionally, cast parts for the prosthetics market demand high criteria and characteristics regarding dimensional repeatability.
- The medical field also requires resistance tests for weight load or sterilization temperature.
- It is also possible to create specialized devices of complex design, such as a laryngoscope or others, for various technical environments: surgical, orthopedic, etc.
You need to submit a request for an existing item in the market or a new prototype. Together, we will explore the various avenues to actualize it.
Aerospace and Complex Metal Parts
The aerospace sector is one of the domains where accuracy and resilience are most crucial. There’s no margin for error, and we comprehend that.
We have the equipment and expertise to ensure compliance with your requirements. We prevent any traces of casting, oxidation, and contamination through our meticulous manufacturing process.
Furthermore, we’re mindful of the weight-sensitive conditions in the aerospace environment. Consequently, we produce thin-walled cast parts with strict Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) controls.
You’ve found the right partner if you wish to:
- Manufacture engines, landing gear, and wing flap controllers. We are well-versed in stringent alloy and design specifications.
- Create parts and components for all civil or military aircraft and drones.
- Seek technical assistance for designing, co-engineering, or producing unique or repeatable complex prototypes.
