Transition from welding to casting to realize impactful benefits

  • Reduced number of required components                                                                                             
  • Reduced number of required secondary/assembly operations                                                                    
  • Reduced complexity of inventory management and therefore inventory costs                                               
  • Reduced inventory holding costs due to less inventory being required
  • Increased reliability of product performance
  • Increased performance quality
  • Reduced failure modes 

Using ductile iron instead of aluminum results in 

  • Enhanced strength
  • Longer part life
  • Greater ductility
  • Reduced risk of deformation
  • Reduced risk of failure

Using austempered ductile results in 

  • Reduced part weight
  • Enhanced strength to weight ratios
  • Enhanced toughness
  • Improved elongation, even competitive with steel
