The hitch coupling for an agriculture implement is a replacement that consolidates five different hitches into one. Each original hitch was made of multiple steel pieces that were bent and welded together. The consolidation of hitches into a single casting reduced the number of parts and allowed commonality of products for the customer, as well as the consumer. The new casting provided the customer an annual savings of $20,000. ...

The part offered the customer a cost reduction, simplified assembly and reduced inventory costs. It was integral to the success of the customer’s engine build, as it accommodated limited space and weight restrictions. To make the component castable, design changes were required to the 170-lb. John Deere tractor engine auxiliary drive casting due to challenging geometry. The casting avoided the need for multiple cast, fabricated and/or welded parts. ...

The casting design features cast-to-size holes, diameters, and internal ports and passages. Some internal passages and overflow ports could not be formed through the extraction of steel cores, so the casting supplier used two expendable sand cores. Customer Matrix by Midmark selected A020 alloy for its high strength, mechanical properties and wear resistance. The high tensile and yield strengths of the material allowed the casting supplier to cast the housing with minimum wall thicknesses, keeping part weight and material costs down. ...

The seven tiny parts have wall thicknesses as low as 0.035 in. and slots of 0.04 in. The stationary jaw part has a 0.04-in. diameter hole through two interior walls and could not be machined. ...

The cam was converted from a machined solid billet. The investment casting, weighing 1 lb., eliminated machining of the component. The casting supplier was able to produce the cam tracks and spline in near-net-shape. Signicast also provided the star shape on the end of the casting that was previously a secondary component pressed onto the original machined part. Overall part performance was improved due to a reduction in weight, which resulted in less rotational inertia. ...

The single piece magnesium casting achieved a more than 20% weight reduction over the traditional steel liftgate and integrated six parts into one panel, the largest of its type in the world. ...

The high performance automotive aftermarket manifold was less expensive to manufacture than the sheet metal alternative and provided a 5% engine performance boost. ...

The dental suction pump’s casting design features cast-to size holes, diameters, and internal ports and passages. Some internal passages and overflow ports could not be formed through the extraction of steel cores, so the casting supplier used two expendable sand cores. The casting design also incorporated three mounting feet into the housing, which reduced the net casting weight by 7% and overall cost by 14% compared to purchasing the housing and mounting baseplate separately. ...

The casting reduced costs by eliminating bolt-on components and reduced weight by eliminating unnecessary mass and reducting draft. The casting incorporates a water pump component, EGR passage and coolant return passage (all with no cores required), idler pulley mounting pedestal and alternator mounting bracket (eliminating additional components), washer face and various cast passages and openings. ...
