Risers dimensions were minimized for this casting, leading to a metal yield % increase from 48% to 78% ( risers and gating not shown ). SF is your SOLIDCast, FLOWCast and OPTICast support contact for Canada.
With foundries, SF optimize the casting process as a consultant and by implementing technologies along with continuous support. We invest in long-term business relations.
With casting buyers, SF provide project management and design expertise so the design is cost-effective and defects eradicated from the first mold filled with metal. Not all welded assemblies are good candidates for a conversions to a casting. Do you have some for evaluation by SF engineering team?
Moreover, SF distributes equipment and software (click to see product page). We currently have customers from Canada and India. We will soon launch our thermal analysis porosity control tool for aluminum ( oxides and hydrogen ) for customers in the USA. This R&D is currently funded by cqrda.ca
