This aluminum exhaust housing for the marine industry integrates the exhaust, cooling, steering, and mount, replacing a 28-component assembly and saving $75.04 per unit.
The lost foam tooling for this ductile iron chain roll is designed to produce multiple part configurations/part numbers with a single tool using interchangeable inserts.
Making this ductile iron differential carrier via the lost foam casting method meant less machine stock and the addition of machining relief features.
Fuel Filter Housing
A complex coring design produced seven independent passages in this iron fuel filter housing. The original design was simpler, but lost foam allowed the more complex coring to better route fuel through the filtration system.
