Automotive Castings

From Transmission Cases to Engine Blocks

Automotive Investment CastingsSince the first Model T rolled off the assembly line, the automotive industry has relied on repeatability, flexibility, and cost-saving manufacturing methods. Today, investment casting's automotive castings offer the next generation of weight reduction, highly complex designs, and surface finishing for major automotive manufacturers worldwide.

Global auto manufacturers turn to PCT's investment casting process to convert existing components into tougher, lighter automotive castings. PCT produced the first investment castings incorporated into Peterbilt Motor Company trucks. Honda Motor Company also depends on the weight reducing opportunities afforded by investment casting.

Automotive Casting Advantages

With automotive castings, the design possibilities are practically limitless. We specialize in converting multi-part assemblies into single, stronger investment castings. Ribs or bosses can be added to increase the structural integrity of critical frame components.

Automotive Netshape automotive castings require significantly less machining than other mass manufacturing methods, and can easily achieve superior surface finishes (125 RMS or better). From polished stainless steel to lightweight aluminum, PCT fits the alloy to the application.

Automotive investment castings also introduce thin wall and tapering capabilities, allowing for increased design flexibility and dimensional stability. Since investment castings produce such little waste, they offer clear economic advantage for high production rates.
