In today’s competitive global marketplace, your business partners should be meeting your delivery expectations. At NFCA, company-wide resources are dedicated to ensure on-time delivery. One of NFCA's goals is to meet your delivery expectations every time.
When developing new components sand castings provides the ability to create workable and testable prototypes unlike many other casting processes. "One off" pars use your design and the exact alloy of the production component to give a better understanding of your component.
Few manufacturers and engineers are experts in casting and metallurgy. Manufacturers focused on what happens AFTER your components are produced, not how the part is produced. However, component design has a direct effect on "manufacturability." NFCA has decades of casting and manufacturing that assist in determining the best path for higher quality and lower cost production. NFCA will use your design, blueprint, or CAD files and work with your engineers to create a more valuable product.
Shorter set up time
When comparing the time and cost involved in set up and tooling, sand casting offers greater value than other processes. In one case, NFCA provided a client with revised tooling for their component in just one week. Tooling in other processes for the same component required twelve weeks. Not every project requires that level of urgency.
Efficient company logistics, or the timing of component transport and delivery, can also significantly affect the profitability of your business.
Modern manufacturing is a balancing act between late deliveries and insufficient quantities. NFCA understands the importance of delivering your components exactly when you need them and in the needed volume to ensure balance.
If parts arrive on time, but don’t meet your quality specifications. More time is spent inspecting and spot-checking the parts, adding unwarranted expenses for the component. NFCA has experience and a reputation for casting excellence. Allowing the customer to spend less time worrying and more time producing.
