Pacific Steel Casting Company Engineering

Technology Designed to Shorten Your Production Cycle

From the design stage through testing and production we work closely with you to share the essential data—going from concept to model in a matter of hours. In that time we are able to produce computer simulations for solidification and stress analysis while performing other essential structural tests.

Whether it’s anticipating wear and usage scenarios or working with you to analyze and evaluate your product production considerations, we make sure your expectations are integrated into the workflow at the initial design steps to achieve:

It is essential that the product designer and our engineers be in close agreement during every phase of the design process to deliver the desired quality result.

We practice a collaborative approach – Concurrent Engineering – using modeling software that gives you a view into the design steps leading up to the patterning phase.

Computer assistance and tools also provide for rapid prototyping and aid in critical analysis steps that yield shortened development cycles

Technology and Experience Focused

Initial Review

steel casting engineering

Design specifications and other requirements are carefully reviewed from inception. Every casting request is handled as a custom job.

Risering Design

steel foundry engineering

Molds must have properly placed and sized risers to feed liquid metal into casting during solidification.

Flow Analysis

The flow analysis process analyzes casting and gating design to predict and minimize flow-related defects such as misruns, oxide formation, or mold erosion due to excessive velocities during filling.
