Muncie Casting Corporation

High quality iron and aluminum castings, short production runs and rapid turn around of your complex prototypes are our speciality.


Working directlty with our engineering and manufacturing teams we can respond to your changes in design rapidly.

 

Let us show you how we can reduce the design requiremetns of your parts, the material used, the necessary tool costs and shorten your time to market.


Our value-added services solve all your needs. Heat treatment, surfacing, testing, and assembly. Reducing the cost and time needed to make your part.


We can use your labels and seals to drop ship your order anywhere in the world.


When it comes to making a reliable mold you must have good tools. Period. Whether they are metal dies, 3D plastic printed and simple wood patters or high tolerance metal impregnated polymer. Tooling for the manufacture of molds and castings includes the processing of many different types of manufacturing disciplines. Using the most advanced CAD and CAM packages available we can handle any file format or document type you can generate, or even none at all.

Our integrated manufacturing process gives us the ability to use plotted diagrams and prints, as well as digital information from popular 3D model and solid formats, .pdf (Adobe Portable Document File) to obscure and old Sun and IBM formats rarely seen anymore. And, we can build your model from scratch if necessary.


The advantages of using a fully integrated digital system are too many to count! There are times, however when you need the deft touch of a skilled craftsman. Experienced craftsman and knowledgeable CAD/CAM designers combined together with precise control over CNC machining systems provide the best and most accurate tooling surfaces and geometry available today.


How tools are used is important. During the manufacturing process the tools are repeatedly handled by machinery, people, lifting and transport systems such as conveyors, clamping and hoist systems or vibration bars. If that abuse wasn't enough, they are routinely coated in various chemical and metallic or plasticized applicants and constantly filled with sand. The sand can be mixed and dropped into the tool under gravity, blown into the tool or injected under pressure. The tools are exposed to both heat and pressure from all directions, if they are poorly made they will wear out fast.

The sand, which hardens into part of the mold, is either a solid, a shell or is variably dense depending on the process. The mold is then removed from the tool, often with a semi-automated process that 'draws' the mold from the tool and can also flip them over. Once on a flat bottom-board the mold is ready to go.

The tools are cleaned and prepared with a chemical surface treatment called parting or a surface protectant and then reused. Keeping the tools at a constant temperature, clean and free from defects creates the perfect environment to build perfectly formed molds time and time again.
