Situation: A vendor which owned tooling and had piece requirements that were not ideal for a customer.
Solution: Dielectric Manufacturing, also a vendor for the customer, sourced a different foundry to make a near-form billet to save on machining and to provide the correct thickness required for a heat-treating process. Dielectric Manufacturing then worked with a supplier to come up with a material and process to meet or exceed print specifications and the quoted ductile iron. The ductile iron on its own would not meet the specification, but after Austemper heat-treating, it would.
Result: Collaboration on short-run castings provided the customer what it needed.
