- With more than 35 years of experience in white metal casting, The Contenti
Company has made a permanent commitment to quality and improvement in spin-casting
and investment casting technology. Throughout the years, Contenti has expanded
the use of spin-casting equipment for jewelry and other parts to include the
casting of engineered, prototype, and industrial parts. Our acquisition of the
Frank Pertot Company in 2000 has added two exclusive formulations to our selection
of organic mold rubber.
- Spin-Casting is an asset as a manufacturing process, allowing thermoset
plastics, pattern waxes, and metals all to be cast effectively. Fast setting
liquid thermoset plastics can be spin-cast as an alternative to injection molding.
Plastic production parts can now be manufactured economically when injection
molding isn’t cost effective. Pattern wax can also be spin-cast to create
wax patterns for investment casting, greatly increasing productivity.
- The Contenti Company has always dedicated itself to development and research
of new materials and processes for spin-casting. Contenti offers the highest quality tin and lead based casting alloys.
These alloys, as well as other metals such as zinc/aluminum alloys, can be used
in spin-casting to produce tens, hundreds, and even thousands of high quality
production parts. Spin-Casting can offer die cast results in cases where die
casting is cost prohibitive.
- Manufacturing isn’t the only area benefiting from Spin-Casting. Rapid
prototyping and product development is quickly finding Spin-Casting to be a strong
ally. Engineers and product designers can create numerous quick, economical,
and functional parts in high strength metal or plastic from delicate stereo-lithography
models. Molds can be made and parts can be cast in as little as 3 hours, or for
complex parts, rarely more than one day. Design changes in size, function, fit,
or appearance can be quickly reproduced without making or wasting a large investment
in tooling and machine time.
