Case Studies – News

Our case studies are an excellent example of the versatility of the investment castings process and the ingenuity of our engineers. Each case study highlights the many unique design considerations that were addressed during the prototyping process.

PCT Featured in Incast

Design freedom as well as alloy choice made investment casting the best, and perhaps the only choice for producing an assembly of parts used in “Cable-Tite” tie down system for fixing the walls and roof of a home to its foundation to protect the structure against high winds.

Optical Bench Casting

PCT improved the laser range finder and target acquisitioning system on a series of military vehicles. By converting to investment casting, PCT managed to reduce machining, increase part strength, and expand alloy choice at a fraction of the cost of similar manufacturing methods.

PCT Wins ICI Award

The Investment Casting Institute awarded Precision Casting of Tennessee, Inc. for the design and casting of Cable-Tite components. They were sighted for their contribution to the home building industry for the casting industry’s highest honors.

Gear Worm Wheel

This redesigned M171 gear worm wheel won the 2008 Investment Casting Institute Military Equipment Award, and is a testament to the benefits of investment casting. PCT was able to significantly decrease the total weight of the casting without compromising dimensional stability.

PCT Launches new Website

The new site provides industry-specific examples of PCT's award-winning Netshape casting solutions. Updated case studies, design guides, and white papers offer invaluable information for visitors considering a conversion to investment castings.

Cable-Tite Home Tie Downs

PCT worked with Cable-Tite to develop an innovative home tie down solution that featured design characteristics that were impossible to cost-effectively recreate using other metal forming methods. Cable-Tite is currently being used in homes built by the Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans.
