Rapid Prototype Castings & CAD CAM Design Services

Bescast utilizes casting simulation software and CAD CAM designs to produce rapid prototypes and validate engineered castings. Combined with our manufacturing and logistics capabilities, our rapid prototype castings and CAD CAM services allow us to combine all stages of production under one roof, creating a reliable experience for our customers.

Prototyping Design and Engineering

Our engineering expertise is available to our customers throughout a product's life cycle. To create engineered castings, Bescast not only manufactures our client's stainless steel castings to their exact specifications, but we can also assist in the design and development stages. Leveraging our superior engineering tools, we can go from print to 3D prototype in a matter of minutes. Our CAD CAM services and casting software allow us to emulate and validate all manufacturing operations.

ProCast Software

Casting process simulation is a widely accepted tool in product design and process development that helps to improve yield and casting quality. ProCAST uses Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to simulate casting processes with high accuracy and aid in the understanding of solidification.

Superior Engineering With Rapid Prototype Castings

Based on powerful Finite Element solvers and advanced options developed with leading research institutes and industries, ProCAST is an efficient and accurate casting software solution that meets the industry's needs. Compared to the traditional trial-and-error approach, ProCAST is the key engineered castings solution to reduce manufacturing costs, shorten lead times for mold developments and improve the quality of the casting process. Fewer than 13% of casting companies in the world possess this valuable casting simulation software.

By using ProCAST, Bescast provides a complete cast software solution for predictive evaluations of the entire casting process, including:

  • Mold Filling
  • Solidification
  • Microstructures
  • Thermo-Mechanical Simulations

ProCAST allows our engineering team to visualize the effects of gating design rapidly and to correct the manufacturing process at an early stage of development. Bescast's engineers and investment casting suppliers will combine your electronic model with the realities of the casting process to provide critical feedback necessary to optimize your designs. The result is a concurrent engineering discipline that ensures a reliable casting process with dependable lead times for your engineered castings.

When Precision Investment Casting Matters

Aerospace castings require highly precise and repeatable engineered castings to meet the demands of their industry. Top companies in the industry rely on Bescast for our precision casting simulation software and validation processes as well as our precision investment casting production facilities.

CAD CAM Services

Using your electronic data, we download your solid model or CAD CAM design into our fully integrated system, allowing us to quickly generate rapid prototype models and launch tool builds in our in-house tooling department. Our CAD CAM services allow us to produce rapid prototype castings and provide critical design feedback that can save customers time and money during the production process.
