Rapid Prototyping Aluminum
Your Designs Become Reality.
Engineering quick complex patterns to effectively test numerous iterations of your component or product.
CAD and FEA Analysis
Our dedication to quality aluminum sand castings starts with a proper CAD model and FEA analysis.
We work with your product developers to make sure all CAD or similar models meet mechanical stress, fluid flow, and many other simulations.

Prototype Aluminum Casting Pattern
Creating a master pattern for your aluminum sand casting will come from your CAD model. The cost to have a prototype aluminum casting made with our process is much more cost-effective than die casts- saving a huge upfront cost.
These patterns can be used to produce low-volume production parts of your prototype. Low-volume manufacturing for Precise Cast is 1,000 units a month.

Metal Cast Process
Upload a CAD file
Our team will check for design flaws and run a FEA analysis prior to pattern production.
A pattern is created to establish the mold for the sand cast.
After the pattern is inserted into the enclosure, we use our special fine grain sand to produce the pattern indentation.
Molten metal is poured into the mold and allowed to cool to the appropriate temperature fot optimal removal.
Machining is offered for stricter tolerances or complex shapes not achievable with casting.
Our Unique Approach to Sand Castings
Saving you time-
We offer exceptionally fast lead times compared to other foundries. 1-2 weeks or shorter!
Saving you money-
Because we use a unique type of fine-grain sand our metal castings produce a Ra surface of 120-22o, saving you costs on additional tooling or machining of your cast parts.
Aluminum Prototype Castings For Many Industries
Prototype to Production
Because of our quality castings, many of our customers use their prototypes as their production parts.
As an added bonus, as long as Precise Cast is producing your parts you won’t pay for any worn-out tooling!
