TEKCAST can provide absolutely everything to "start-up" new operations. Manufacturers worldwide are successfully using our spin casting machinery to cast a broad range of products...from furniture hardware, medallions/medals, fishing lures, decorative collectibles and jewelry to the more demanding applications of industrial prototypes, production run components and reproductions of hard to find replacement parts. Join our rapidly growing TEKCAST family worldwide..... who are now saving time and money with this versatile process!
OFTEN IMITATED - NEVER DUPLICATED
Our innovative, patented "Front Loading" TEKCASTER sets the standard for quality spin-casting equipment. Our focus has always been on providing quality products that meet stringent requirements for performance and economics. Spin-Casting is our only business and our specialty.
A.) Vulcanizer B.) TEKSIL Mold C.) "Front Loading" TEKCASTER D.) Melting Furnace Assembly
With over 35 years of experience, TEKCAST is recognized as the world leader in Spin-Casting equipment and technology. It was founded in 1968 by Leonard Schaer, a graduate metallurgical engineer specializing in casting and mold design. He is the author of 30 technical papers on Spin-Casting and holds USA and International patents on Spin-Casting equipment.
SETTING INDUSTRY STANDARDS FOR INNOVATIVE DESIGN & QUALITY PRODUCTS
From its inception, TEKCAST INDUSTRIES RI has not only made a permanent commitment to quality, but also to the improvement of Spin-Casting technology. As a result, TEKCAST's patented "Front Loading" equipment, process developments and technological innovations have expanded the use of Spin-Casting from a jewelry and novelty technique to a major industrial casting process for engineered, industrial and functional parts.
ONGOING PRODUCT RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
TEKCAST's development of its own high performance TEKSIL silicone rubber mold formulations opened the Spin-Casting frontier to the use of industrial quality, commercially available metals and plastics. TEKCAST also pioneered the use of high strength zinc alloys, thermoset plastics and pattern wax for industrial applications. We offer a broad range of specially formulated metal casting alloys in zinc, pewter & tin base to meet your particular casting requirements and manufacturing needs. Our customer's applications range from Decorative & Novelty products to Industrial and Product Developement requirements.
The Economical Alternative to Die Casting: The TEKCAST Spin-Casting system provides high precision, close tolerances and faithful reproduction of detail. When used with our proprietary TEKALOY zinc alloys, to produce high quality parts equivalent to those produced by pressure die casting.
Replaces Plastic Injection Molding: Spin-Casting can also be used as an alternative to plastic injection molding, using quick-setting liquid thermoset plastics. It is also ideal for making wax patterns for investment casting.
State of the Art Process Controls & Engineering Innovations: With the introduction of the new Series 100 TEKCASTER, TEKCAST now offers the highest state of the art control of casting operations. The Series 100-D TEKCASTER features full digital display of cycle time, clamp pressure and spin speed. You work better because our machines are designed to work better for you!
NEW HIGH-TECH APPLICATIONS
One of the most exciting modern applications of Spin-Casting technology is its use in rapid prototyping and product development. It is ideal for quickly and economically producing numerous, fully functional parts in high strength metal or plastic from any fragile computer generated stereo lithography models. Product designers can then subject multiple parts to thorough testing and evaluation in their intended applications. With TEKCAST's TEKSIL Rubber Mold materials, molds can be made and prototypes or development parts cast in as little as three hours, or for complex parts, rarely more than one day. Design changes in size, function, fit or appearance are quickly reproduced without making or wasting a large investment in tooling or machine time.
DISTRIBUTION, TRAINING & TECHNICAL SUPPORT WORLDWIDE
TEKCAST's continued growth and success have been attributed to the consistent emphasis placed on both the high quality products and the extensive technical support offered to its customers. The training resources it provides include comprehensive 5-8 day training seminars, training manuals, instructional videos and tutorial molds; as well as, in-house training programs.
