For over half a century The Basic Aluminum Casting Company has been a privately held, financially solid die casting company with a professional integrity matched by few in today’s industry.
At The Basic Aluminum Casting Company, we bring quality die casting with delivery and pricing achieved through a sound business organization. Centrally located in Cleveland, Ohio, we’re easily accessible across the Midwest and the entire United States. Occupying over 55,000 square feet at our plant, Basic has serves the transportation and general manufacturing industries and beyond! The Basic Aluminum Casting Company can be best described as an engineering company with one simple trait – creating die cast products from listening and understanding our customer’s needs. A strong commitment to that and a focus on quality has enabled us to continue to be one of the best and oldest names in the industry.
When it comes to aluminum casting, the process begins with an idea about a new product. The person who has initiated the project means that he or she has to share the ideas with the market. This person has to develop a certain product or image in order to get through the concept and understand it. But before these factories begin to make any aluminum casting, the product still needs to get through an evaluation process. Whether it meets standards or not is a question that is answered moving forward. These industries also understand the tools and the equipment needed to make this concept a fruitful one.
After the product has been evaluated, the experts in the industry will be present to offer some suggestions for improvement. Some of these include changes that will make the manufacturing process better and others include the aluminum casting alloys that will be used. These may be able to point out certain ways in which the products can be made useful and functional. These may also suggest certain changes and transformation needed to lower expenses.
Before moving forward to the next phases, the creator of the concept and the evaluators will huddle together to do the work. They are introduced to the plans and all the changes that are needed. Each of these pointers are introduced also to a programming module. During the recent years, people and experts who take part in the process of creating these with aluminum casting alloys depend on information acquired using the iron mold. This mold is formulated depending on software and controls that are computerized. These programs then guide the machines into turning them to iron molds.
The Iron and Alloys
The iron is characterized as a durable and stable metal that holds the aluminum during the first casting. Following the formula, the client then examines these products acquired from the mold. Once they are able to approve the sample from the first casting, this becomes the ultimate pattern and the full-scale casting comes underway.
Workers are then able to pour the coating into this mold. This coating has to be functional and strong enough to reduce and decrease the wearing on the mold. It prepares it for a long series of casting during the process. Each series has rounds that have long sequences of casting that induces the melting of these alloys. These alloys are also exposed in temperatures that should be high to make the process a successful one. Once it melts, it is laid onto the molten metal toward the molds. Then, the mold is cooled down and once it has cooled down, the iron cast is taken away. Then, the finishing work begins.
