Though we’ve been pouring sand and investment castings since 1957, we’ve stayed on top of ever-evolving technologies, so we can continue to provide our customers with top quality and value.

From MAGMASOFT Casting Simulation using digital 3-D Solidworks CAD to make your casting sound, to FARO measurement device verification and reverse engineering scans to manufacture patterns from original parts, Fisher Cast Steel can work directly with your team to put our latest technology to work for you, customizing the process and products to your exact specifications.

Foundry Engineering with Casting Simulation and CAD

Fisher Cast Steel utilizes Solidworks CAD in conjunction with MAGMASOFT to review and design a gating and risering system to make your casting sound. With Solidworks and MAGMASOFT casting simulation, Fisher can effectively work with your engineers to propose the most cast able solution for your stainless and carbon steel casting needs.

MAGMASOFT simulation software affords Fisher the ability to simulate pouring a casting before real-time manufacturing in the foundry. This helps when predict problematic gating and risering designs to avoid unnecessary scrap. In addition, the software aids non-destructive (NDT) casting requirements that may apply to a project.

Fisher Cast Steel’s engineering personnel utilize the latest version of Solidworks and has the capability of accepting a wide range of file formats including STEP, x_t, .IGS, etc.

Scanning and Reverse Engineering

Fisher Cast Steel utilizes a FARO measurement device to ensure dimensional accuracy of tooling, castings and machined parts. This technology can be critical to the manufacturing process.

In addition, this technology allows reverse engineering of existing parts and patterns. A 3-D model is generated in this process to allow the reproduction of a part. Once a model is created, the appropriate tooling can be manufactured for your project. This tool allows parts to be made faster, more accurately and less costly.

3-D Printed Cores, Molds and Wax

Fisher Cast Steel has stayed in the forefront of the ever-changing foundry industry. The desire to make stainless and carbon castings faster, dimensionally more accurate, and less costly has aided the advancement in 3-D printing.

Fisher designs cores and molds using Solidworks and MAGMASOFT, to insure soundness and dimensional accuracy of the casting. We have experience with printed molds and cores in various sand media.

Parts cast have included impellers, volutes, pumps, valves for a wide range of applications.

CNC Cut Permanent and Short-Run Tooling

Fisher Cast Steel has vast knowledge and experience manufacturing CNC tooling in various materials for stainless and carbon steel castings. Our experience gives the customer the ability to utilize the most appropriate means for its tooling.

Pattern precision, costs and lead times can be improved with CNC machining equipment. In tandem with Solidworks CAD, models are engineered with adjustments to ensure the parts are properly cast. CNC cut tooling can include wood, urethane, red board, aluminum and polystyrene or foam. Our Faro Arm measurement tool can be used to verify accuracy.

Tooling can produce parts a few ounces to several thousand pounds in a wide range of alloys.

Your consistent high level of performance on all our orders is noticed and appreciated. We can always count on Fisher.
