DEVELOPMENT & PRODUCTION SPEED

ENABLER FOR PRODUCT VARIANTS AND GEOMETRIES

AS FAST AS 3D PRINTING, WITHOUT COMPROMISED MATERIALS PROPERTIES

DIGITAL CORE & WAX PRODUCTION

ENTERING CASTING PRODUCTION WITHIN A FEW WEEKS


FLC FLOWCASTINGS IS THE MODERN RAPID TURBINE AIRFOIL CASTINGS INNOVATOR

Since our inception in 2011, Flowcastings has been developing and producing high-value turbine castings for the power generation (oil & gas) and aviation industries, currently a $3.5bn annual global market. Flowcastings' unique customer values are: 

  • Unrivaled speed from concept to metal

  • Economic flexibility to achieve fast production runs for new or modified components

  • Faster access and expanded degrees of freedom for new geometric features (enabling higher jet engine and power turbine efficiency and reducing global CO2 emissions and other pollutants)

  • Supporting our customers in translating 'Industry 4.0' turbine fleet feedback into product innovations

  • Delivery of high end single crystal and directionally solidified airfoil products

  • Cooperations and collaborations, supporting external casting processes with Flowcastings' unique ceramics and wax products
