Graphicast’s graphite mold casting process is a suitable solution for the manufacture of high-precision components and features decreased mold production and parts costs. The process produces castings of the zinc-aluminum alloy ZA-12 for production quantities of 200 to 20,000 parts per year. Single-source production capabilities include in-house design services, rapid prototyping, mold production, net-shape casting, secondary machining, and finishing with typical turnaround times of four to six weeks. With the ZA-12 casting process, graphite molds can be created quicker than steel molds, reducing up-front tooling costs. Graphite also can be machined and modified easily, improving flexibility in debugging. Spark-proof graphite molds are machined in two halves and used repeatedly but require no heat treating; stability and low porosity create molds that hold their shape without warping or corrosion.
