What Are Lead Castings?
Lead casting is the process of pouring liquid metal into a mold. Our process takes advantage of lead due to how common it is, plus its ability to shield processors from harmful radiation. We cast all lead products in numerous shapes without sacrificing quality. Following the casting process, we machine your lead casting to the specified shape and size. The machines we use can easily create complex shapes. From parts for X-rays and MRI scans to lead pots and nuclear fuel containers, our process can manufacture them all. Our process always starts with a consultation, followed by the engineering process, to ensure the design meets all required specifications. Unlike other materials, lead possesses unique features that require experience and knowledge to work effectively. This is why our engineers work closely with our clients to exchange ideas to not only identify the requirements for the product but allowing us to suggest improvements to deliver the best product possible. Take a look at the advantages of using lead castings for your products, including:
- Cost – Regarding low-volume manufacturing, lead requires low tooling costs, is easy to find, and is cost-effective to use while being a quick and reliable material.
- Time – Our lead castings require minimal tooling due to our manufacturing process. This allows components to be quickly produced in either minimal or mass quantities. The process we use allows us not only quick to deliver your lead casting but allows for greater customization to better fit your needs without going over budget.
- Complexity – Our process is an excellent choice for those looking for either simple or complex parts, as the casting procedure offers unrivaled flexibility and can design to fit a variety of shapes and sizes. Further, lead casting allows you to create hollow sections or internal cavities without an issue.
- Quality – Lead castings offer durable and solid components and can produce thin walls without sacrificing structural integrity. Due to how the lead is poured, we can create quality parts quickly.
