Contract Manufacturing
Semi-solid. Thixocasting. Aluminum.

Forging integrity. Casting efficiency.
Material advantage from metallurgy. 

Solution

(1) Credibly eliminate shrinkage defects & gas porosity for near-net shapes.

(2) Reduce weight and optimize mechanical and thermal properties.

(3) Lower the total manufacturing cost of complex part design.

Production

We start with premium grade ingot to make our own SSM thixotropic bar. This in-house capability enables onsite recycling at >98% material yield.

From prototype to production, we offer tooling, thixocasting, T5 & T6 heat treatment, machining, finishing, and coating to deliver value engineering solutions ready for assembly.

Consultation

Part weights: 5 g to 5 kg.
Quantities: 1,000 to 500,000 per year.

Rethink forgings, extrusions, and machined parts to benefit from a near-net shape, fully dense process at lower cost.

Replace castings prone to costly porosity, field failure, or dimensional instability.

Thixocasting & Heat Treatment

From premium grade ingot, material heats are alloyed, filtered, degassed, electromagnetically stirred, and continuously cast as bar to produce and control the equiaxed grain structure that enables our high-integrity, semi-solid thixocasting process. Billets are cut, preheated to induce thixotropy, then injected, turbulence-free, into isothermal dies. Material solidification occurs under high consolidation pressure to yield fully dense, near-net shape, heat-treatable parts with peak mechanical properties that conform to NADCA precision tolerance standards.

Machining, Finishing & Coating

We provide onsite CNC machining, surface preparation, shot blasting, vibratory tumbling, and light assembly. We also offer managed services for anodize, powder coat, chrome plating, e-coat, liquid paint, chromate, and more.
