Within engine and transmission design, Precision Castings are often used in prototypes/pre-series for the verification of the design/function before the ordering of complex and expensive high pressure die casting dies. Precision Castings based on SPM can be given almost identical properties as high pressure die castings in terms of surface finish, tolerances and strength. The simplicity in alterations of the pattern equipment is an additional advantage for the use of precision castings in prototypes/pre-series within the automotive industry.
Manufacturers of special vehicles in small series also use Precision Castings in their running production as an alternative to hand-moulded sand castings. Sand castings do not give the close tolerances and low weight that are often required by automotive companies.
Precision casting for all shapes
Hackås Precision Foundry can cast, heat treat and machine components from 100 grams up to approx. 50 kilograms. With our own pattern shop we have full control over our pattern production, which means that we can offer short delivery time and quick turn around for pattern modifications. We also take care of surface treatment and assembly.
