All the aluminum we present to market is alloyed aluminum. Alloys vary by what the end need of the product is, but we can help you narrow your choices by understanding the end need of product. 


The MATRIX shows aluminum being castable by a variety of different processes with die cast, sand cast, permanent mold and investment cast being typical first stops. We'll walk you through how to decide again by understanding your end product need. 

Typical needs of aluminum castings include: near net shape, high strength to weight ratio, fine surface finish, wear resistance, cost effective to other options. Each process noted on the MATRIX page has a high degree of dimensional stability with aluminum, as well as castable density run over run.


Solidification modeling is used extensively in tooling development no matter what process is chosen. This leads to ‘first shot’ success and limited resampling, once defined porosity is well controlled in any of the noted processes.

Tool life in Aluminum is excellent but does vary by process. Machinability in  aluminum is another high point, with a low machine tool wear.


Production casting tooling can be had for as little as $4K and available for production in as little as 3 weeks.Aluminum castings can be painted,plated,polished, anodized.


Typical markets are Power tool, power distribution,r ecreational, military, aerospace, automotive and the list goes on.
