Investment Casting Breathing Apparatus
A recent project at Sylatech Limited has been an Investment Casting requirement by Bilsom Sentry. The requirements were to reduce the production costs whilst maintaining the high quality of the components. The component (pictured) is for Breathing Apparatus.
Sylatech worked along side the engineers at Bilsom and redesigned the component which resulted in the original need for expensive brazing and machining operations to be avoided. With the use of specialist casting and soluble cores, critical internal detail was cast without any problem. The overall component was significantly improved because of the structural integrity being better than before.
A complete solution was offered from tooling, casting, machining and sourcing the vacuum impregnation and surface plating.
