Producing large, complex, pressure tight high quality castings and other high performance products requires a team with strong engineering capabilities. Upfront collaboration with our customers is key to ensure that their casting design is robust so that it supports being produced in high yields, at the quality and metallurgical performance levels that the market demands.
One of the first tools used by Stahl’s engineers is solidification software. Utilizing both filling and solidification routines, Stahl Engineers can better understand a castings natural thermal response when coupled with a particular gating scheme and cooling system. By reviewing variations in casting design, gating design, and or the cooling system, a mold can be developed that meets the customers requirements and casting performance requirements, as well as production target goals.
HEAT TREAT & METALLURGY
Stahl has a world-class heat treat process. Stahl has performed decades of extensive studies on a particular alloys response to heat treat recipe variations. This data allows Stahl engineers to provide a specific custom heat treat recommendation to our customers to meet their specific metallurgical requirements.
