Castings for Different Industries

Date: August 31, 2023

Metal casting is a highly versatile manufacturing process that creates components used in almost every sector and industry. With a vast selection of materials available for our casting operations, including stainless steel and aluminium, metal casting suits demanding areas such as aerospace, automotive, architecture, and many more sectors.

Its adaptability and reliability make it an essential process in the manufacturing industry, contributing to almost every area of modern society. Read on to explore our metal casting operations for various industries and how our team fulfils this wide range of requirements.

Aluminium Casting for Aerospace

We understand the demand for lightweight, high-strength components with intricate designs and dimensional accuracy, making aluminium casting the ideal choice.

Our Aerospace castings are tailored specifically to meet all the stringent requirements with precision and quality. We have honed our techniques to ensure the production of lightweight yet robust components, contributing to overall fuel efficiency and enhanced performance. By leveraging advanced technologies and materials, we adhere to rigorous industry standards.

Benefits of Aluminium Metal Casting for Aerospace

  • It reduces weight, enabling better fuel efficiency, reducing operational costs and environmental impact.
  • The flexibility of the casting process allows us to create complex shapes and intricate features that are difficult to achieve through other manufacturing methods.
  • This material ultimately improves aerodynamics and optimises component functionality.

Superior Strength-To-Weight Ratio

Another standout advantage is the high strength-to-weight ratio of aluminium. Aerospace manufacturers can use our aluminium casting to produce lightweight and strong components, enhancing overall performance and safety. This creates increased payload capacity and improved aircraft manoeuvrability.

Aluminium Casting Aerospace Applications

In the aerospace industry, we apply aluminium casting to various components. These include engine parts like turbine blades, compressor casings, and hydraulic system components such as pump housings and valve bodies. Additionally, we efficiently manufacture structural components like brackets, fittings, and wing sections using our aluminium casting techniques. The versatility of our process enables the production of intricate and critical parts, ensuring the smooth operation of aircraft systems.

Stainless Steel Metal Casting for Various Applications

When it comes to stainless steel casting, its versatility is embraced across many industries. Stainless steel possesses unique properties that make it suitable for diverse applications.

  • Corrosion resistance: This makes them ideal for use in environments with high humidity or exposure to acidic or corrosive substances.
  • Superior strength and durability: This ensures these castings withstand even the most extreme conditions.
  • Retaining their physical properties at high temperatures: This makes them suitable for high-temperature applications.

Stainless Steel Castings for the Automotive Sector

This casting method is widely used in automotive manufacturing to produce engine components and intricate parts with high precision and strength. These metal castings' inherent resistances and properties ensure that parts are not affected by their exposure to outdoor use, such as moisture or rock salt, on the roads.

Additionally, stainless steel offers favourable heat resistance properties, allowing automotive components to withstand high internal combustion temperatures without deformation. This is particularly important for parts near the engine or exhaust system, where temperatures can reach extreme levels.

Stainless Steel Castings for Medical Applications

The medical field also benefits greatly from stainless steel casting's hygienic nature, making it ideal for surgical tools, implants, and medical equipment. Its biocompatibility, ease of sterilisation, and corrosion resistance ensure patient safety and longevity of these critical components. Our castings' precise detailing and corrosion resistance have been instrumental in enhancing the efficiency and safety of medical procedures.

Stainless Steel Casting at Dean Group

At Dean Group, we are proud to have successfully delivered high-quality stainless steel automotive castings for various sectors. In one notable case study, we collaborated with a leading automotive manufacturer, producing complex engine components that not only withstood extreme temperatures and pressures but also contributed to improved fuel efficiency.

But our expertise in stainless steel casting is not limited to medical and automotive markets. With our bespoke metal casting solutions, we create reliable products for a broad range of sectors.

Case Study: Stainless Steel Casting for Cloud Cities Barcelona

One of our proudest achievements is our stainless steel metal casting work on the Cloud Cities installation in Barcelona. We were tasked with creating thousands of nodes in various sizes and variants that connect the polycarbonate panels and cables, and we worked closely with Stage One UK to engineer a solution that met the aesthetic and safety requirements of the installation.

Their use of 3D printing for investment casting accurately predicted the designs' performance under planned stresses, allowing us to eliminate the failed variations with rapid casting prototyping and deliver twelve successful options.

With over ten-thousand individual machining operations conducted, each with its specifications to suit its place in the installation, the nodes were produced in stainless steel, with the integrity of the design being crucial. The result is a stunning, permanent artwork that pushes the boundaries of both creativity and engineering in complex architectural projects, with our cast nodes playing an integral part.
