Produce quality castings with reliable foundry tooling
Permanent molds make casting consistent, repeatable parts easy. But only when they’re done right. Projects struggle to get off the ground when potential pitfalls go unnoticed in the design stage.
Validating our engineering in simulations always helps get you casting faster, with a more reliable mold. And every permanent mold we ship comes with a CAD model to promote easier maintenance.
Permanent molds engineered around your exact application
Cooling and venting solutions that range from simple to complex
Most defects in parts formed with permanent molds come from poor cooling or venting of gas. If defects like shrinkage and pinholes keep your parts from meeting your standard, you need to work with expert design engineers on a mold that can be strategically cooled and vented properly.
We’ve never seen a design condition we couldn’t accommodate with creative cooling and venting. Air cooling, water cooling, chill inserts, bubblers, round chills, and rectangular chills, as well as parting vents, sintered vents, insert venting – you name it, we’ve done it right.
Permanent mold technical specifications
Permanent molds from Anderson Global are durable, consistent, and engineered for high-volume production.
- Molds made from steel (P20, 4140, H13) or iron
- While aluminum (356-T6, 355-T6, 319-F, 357-T6) is the most common casting material, we also work with others
- We’ve designed for many machines, including CMH Hall’s, Stahl’s & Eckle’s. No matter your molding machine specifications, we can design a solution for you
The total solution for your foundry mold needs
Whether your needs are complex, simple, or somewhere in between, our expertise ensures you get durable, reliable equipment that creates accurate and consistent parts from the first pour.
A one-stop shop for your whole project
Design, simulation, casting process, machining, benching, validation — we’ll meet you anywhere in your process. No matter the challenge, we can solve it in our Michigan facility.
Decades of experience
Our team of design engineers and journeyman patternmakers have delivered hundreds of molds and core boxes across every industry. And their expertise is on call when you need it.
Modern, data-driven designs
All of our molds and core boxes start in the digital world. Problem-solving in simulations keeps issues out of your foundry and generates accurate data that makes machining, maintenance, and repairs easy.
