To deliver completely finished castings that meet customers’ exact specifications, PPCP offers a variety of high-quality value-added services. These include:
Our team of investment casting and metallurgy professionals will work with you to develop the most efficient, cost-effective solution for your needs. Our staff is among the most experienced in the industry, with the expertise to avoid pitfalls and optimize the process, resulting in the best possible castings.
Our in-house craftsmen can provide a variety of precise machining and finishing services using cutting-edge equipment and software to take your castings from near net shape to exact specifications.
PPCP offers lead times of as little as zero days with our Zero Days Lead Time Stocking Program. This consignment or stocking program enables our customers to access key components and pay when used rather than when the castings are shipped. This high-value service saves time and expense, while ensuring immediate parts availability.
PPCP’s Rapid Prototyping, also known as 3D printing or Free-Form Fabrication, is the process of creating a 3D model of your parts in a material that allows you to cast, test and review your product specifications. It enables you to get a copy of your product at a fraction of the cost required to create the actual investment cast tooling. This also makes it cost effective to order multiple prototypes with different specifications for comparison. The typical time frame to get a prototype in this program is just a few days.
We can provide heat-treating that is necessary to improve casting ductility and machinability, which can be lost during rapid cooling. It also can increase casting strength and result in a more uniform or homogeneous structure throughout the parts.
To ensure the highest levels of quality, the best performance and consistency with specifications, PPCP offers a full range of non-destructive testing. Included are Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI), Radiographic Testing (RT) and more.
