      CNC - Precision Machining

      Precision machining is the process of removing material to obtain a required shape or surface which cannot be achieved via other production methods such as casting. To do this fast and with consistent quality, CNC machines (computer numerical control) are generally used for large production batches.
      Assisted by CAD-CAM (computer aided design – computer aided manufacturing) software, the design to machined part turnaround time can be kept very short and first-time right.
      At Luxe, all of our parts and product follow this process. It provides fast results and consistent quality.

        Gravity Casting

        In the process of gravity casting, a molten aluminium alloy is poured into a die and fills the cavity only by the force of gravity. Via controlling process parameters and the use of well-placed feeder and risers a solid cast shape can be made witha perfect structural integrity.
        Combined with heat treatment and shot blasting, a hard, high strength, good looking and machinable casting can be obtained.

            Die casting

                • Forging is the technique whereby a force is applied to a blank metal object to cause a plastic deformation. The force required is high and therefore special machines are used.
                  The physical deformations of the metal during the forging process reorganises the internal material structure in such a way that excellent mechanical properties can be achieved.
                  Our Storz coupling are an example and they have proven to be extremely strong, durable and reliable.

                    Investment casting
                    • Investment casting is a casting technique that starts with the molding of a wax model that is identical in size and shape to the required cast product.  A process of dipping and drying follows to produce a hard heat-resistant ceramic outer layer on top of this wax model.  When this layer has reached its required thickness, it is heated to melt and remove the wax on the inside.  The result is a disposable hard ceramic shell which can be used to cast metal alloys.

                      Advantages of investment casting:

                      • The lifetime of the mold is extremely long as the molds are not much affected by the wax molding process.
                      • Complex shapes and smooth surfaces can be cast.  This reduces the amount of secondary operations required.
                      • A wide variety of alloys are suitable for this process.
                      • High degree of casting accuracy and thin wall sections are possible, reducing the overall weight of the part.

                          Metal Powder Sintering
                          • In the metal sintering process a powder is pressure compacted into a die followed by heating until the powder particles are fused together and form a strong bond. 
                            The key difference with casting is that during the sintering process the material temperature does not reach the threshold where solid turns into liquid. It is therefore ideal for materials with a high melting point.
