Lost Foam Casting -
Lost Foam Metalcasting -
Weldments and complex casting assemblies can be made using this near net shape casting process. Similar to lost wax investment casting, the process uses a single ceramic coat for process step reduction. This is a value added casting method, which reduces finish machining and increases foundry yield for overall project cost advantages.
Custom Molded Foam
Our custom foam molds are heated and cooled using Tempo’s unique mold circulation system derived from our molded cup technology.  This process yields a smooth, glossy surface finish, and semi-flexible molded parts.  It also allows molding of thin wall sections in your part geometry, we are currently in production on several jobs with wall sections under 2.5mm (.100”) thickness.
