Permanent molds

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.

    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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.
