Molding

Our three types of molding processes were developed with your needs in mind. We utilize:

  • Phenolic Urethane “No-Bake” Sand Molding
    This process incorporates production flexibility, minimal tooling costs, small to large run manufacturing quantities and high quality finishes on produced castings.
  • Shell Molding
    This process utilizes a thermally activated resin bonded sand yielding castings with superior as-cast finishes, excellent dimensional stability, and provides capability for high production quantities.
  • Ceramic Molding
    This process utilizes a special blend of sands which are then subject to a specialized baking process which yields castings with dimensional stability and surface finishes similar to those obtained with the lost wax process.

Always attempting to integrate quality and efficiencies into our solutions, we also have a state-of-the-art thermal sand reclamation system for efficient recovery of sand with minimum environmental impact and waste. What can we do for you?

Melting

Big project? Tough application? With our technical expertise in casting over one hundred different high alloy stainless steels and superalloys, utilizing five induction furnaces on 2 different power supplies, we have the capabilities and team to accomplish your toughest requirements. Our individual casting weights range from 2 pounds to 5,500 pounds. And, our induction furnaces provide excellent temperature melt control, flexibility in melting, with accurate and repeatable chemistries for all alloys. Throughout our process, we have specialized capabilities, like “Teapot” ladles, used to pour metal into molds producing clean defect free castings, to control pouring rates, and maintain accurate temperature control. Additionally, chemistries are assured using internal spectrographic measurements with computerized charge and final additions calculations to the heat. We’ve put rigor into our processes to yield top results for you.

Cleaning

We’re pleased to be able to offer high integrity of our finished products and finish each casting to our customers’ requirements. Thanks to our exacting standards, process controls throughout the cleaning operations are designed to provide assurance that customer requirements are met, maintained, and to the utmost quality.

Product Assurance

Product quality is a top priority. Our efforts include an ANSI/ASQ/Q9001:2000 and ISO9001:2008 Quality System and are key to our success. We are very dedicated to implementing, maintaining, and managing a quality program that continues to advance and embrace all facets of our operational departments and extends to all customer requirements. The department is also responsible for alloy chemistries using computerized heat charges and internal spectrographic analysis. We are pleased to have a complete metrology and spectrographic laboratory solely dedicated to our commitment to customers’ product assurance requirements.

Here are a few of our quality efforts:

  • All Temperform no-bake, ceramic and shell molds contain gating systems that are the result of our CAD and solidification modeling techniques designed to provide clean and sound castings.
  • Our specialized molding techniques and gating and risering developments provide us with the capability of satisfying customer levels of quality, reliability and radiographic requirements.
  • Insure and certify materials meet customer specifications and requirements.

Integrity. Ingenuity. Industrious.
Temperform’s equipped to provide you with the robust results
your business requires.
