Cast consistent cavities at any volume
From simple dump boxes to complex, multi-cavity cores for castings like engine blocks, core box tooling from Anderson Global produces reliable, repeatable cores, time after time.
In high-volume applications, we’ve built durable, consistent tooling that stands up to years of wear, even in the most complex applications (10+ cavities) and nonstandard materials, like urethane.
Smart core box engineering delivers durability and consistency
Accuracy and tight tolerances are part of the design
When a cold core goes into a hot mold, it’s crucial that they interface correctly. A poor interface can lead to poor casting quality and accuracy. However, with excellent design and manufacture, core boxes problems can be engineered away.
Our design engineers excel at adjusting shrinks and clearances to ensure your core fits into the mold, creates the correct shape, and achieves your desired tolerances — based on your application and exact specs.
Core box technical specifications
Core box tooling from Anderson Global is durable, accurate, and adaptable to your needs.
- Our core boxes can be made from steel (4140, P20, A36, H13, etc.), iron, red plastic, aluminum, urethane, wood, or any other standard material
- We’ve designed for many machines, including Laempe, Redford, Palmer, and Hottinger. Give us your core machine spec and we’ll make it fit
- If your casting shape dictates that a core assembly is required, we can add glue tracks and glue wells to adhere two cores together. These small details will alleviate downstream issues for your production team.
