A Video Interview with Kirk Barrett on the Economic and Design Value of Graphite Permanent Mold Castings

Our sales manager, Kirk Barrett, was interviewed at the Design 2 Part Show in Marlborough, MA.  Kirk speaks on the benefits of graphite permanent mold castings.  Interview with Kirk Barrett.

All Packed Up And Ready To Go…!

Graphicast will be at the Design 2 Part show in Marlborough Massachusetts November 2 & 3.  The show is at the Royal Plaza Trade Center, 181 Boston Post Road, Marlborough MA 01752

Please stop by and say hello.  We would enjoy seeing you to discuss our process or any project requirements you have.

This is our last show of 2011 and is right in our backyard, giving us the opportunity to get the real pulse of what is happening in New England.

Assembly Magazine Gets It

What do they Get?  The value and cost benefits featured in Graphicast’s newest trade magazine article.  This case study shows how moving from CNC produced components to a casting process lead National Optronics to big savings on a low volume part.

After working with Graphicast to convert the design, National Optronics has taken what was a four piece pin and screw assembly, down to a single, precision machined casting.

 This project reduced part inventory, assembly time, and made for a much more rigid design.  Oh yeah, they also brought the cost down!

The Power of Collaboration

Caterpillar recently highlighted how they reduced the cost of a component 20% by working with their supplier from the start of the design step. Graphicast has been pushing this concept for the past several years as we’ve recognized that designs coming to us later in the design process were not able to take advantage of all the features a casting can provide. By getting our customers working with us from the beginning, we can help them optimize their parts for manufacturing while still meeting the design specifications for function and performance. We offer our Design and Rapid Prototyping Service as a means to this end, and it has been very successful, with nearly half of our new customer projects starting out with a design consultation at the beginning of the design phase.

Graphicast Goes To Canada – Manufacturing Innovations – Medical

Graphicast will be exhibiting at the SME show “Manufacturing Innovations – Medical“, November 3 & 4 at the International Centre, Mississauga (Toronto) Canada.

Toronto is the heart of Canada’s medical manufacturing industry. Manufacturing Innovations – Medical is the Nation’s first focused event that connects medical manufacturers with companies that supply the technology and equipment they need to improve quality, innovation and speed to market.

Graphicast is excited to be hopping the boarder for the first time and participating in this show.  To register for the show Click Here.

Graphicast was the subject of a feature article in the September 9, 2010 issue of Machine Design magazine. The article focuses on how a Graphicast customer solved a product introduction  timing problem by working with Graphicast to get his parts manufactured and delivered on time and within budget. You can explore how we work with customers in developing projects through a short video on New Product Development.

Graphicast’s Design and Prototyping Service Continues to Receive National Recognition in Design News

Graphicast’s Design and Rapid Prototyping Service (DRPS) continues to receive national recognition. The most recent issue of the Design News website features our process as the lead article. Unique to other prototyping processes, Graphicast will produce a prototype in our ZA12 alloy with all the features present on a finished, machined castings. This way, our customers can test an exact copy of their machined casting before we even begin to cut the graphite mold! Prototypes such as these confirm design intent and casting performance to ensure the final design meets all the design criteria. Having the finished part design and machining program in place with the prototype shortens the time to produce the mold and first production runs of the machined casting. Our customers and prospects are discovering the value of this service, as we see more new parts going through this prototyping process first.

Prototype Part? Looks Like a Machined Casting.
