Continuous Cast Bar Blanks
Continuous cast bar blanks are made with an alternative casting method that is particularly competitive when applied to simple, low feature gear blank designs. The continuous cast process allows for part-specific casting, where simple features can be continuous cast into the raw material, thus providing a “near net” shape.
Our high-speed in-house production flow is equipped to cut bars into pucks, then lathe-turn them into gear blanks or shafts at speeds to meet higher volume requirements and Just In Time turn-around.
We offer an array of alternative casting methods aimed at getting our customers the lowest cost solution. Parts made from Continuous Cast Bar may be the right choice in some cases. This method is most competitive when applied to simple, low feature gear blank designs having demand of 1000 pieces per year or more.
