This casting was once a 17-piece weldment, which was converted to a one-piece Investment Casting which netted a much more accurately consistent motorcycle steering head.

These components demonstrate the ability to imbed a component inside a casting, very inexpensively

Sequential lot coding for complete traceability with Investment Castings

AVK is made in the USA and offers a complete line of tooling and threaded inserts

Solidification modeling takes the guesswork out of how to gate and pour a casting, and might suggest design alterations for the most effective production

The Composi-sert is AVK’s unique design to utilize radial expansion of a spline to prevent insert spin-out better than any other round insert in soft material

Part quality and consistency is a product of the tool, an IC tool that monitors the temperature of the wax, that is injected in a thixotropic state is far superior to conventional tooling

This is an inboard/outboard steering lever, this was originally a forging with heavy machining operations, with Investment casting and staking a nut for threading, all machining was eliminated

Swapping models with the customer is the most effective way of collaborating on a design

Robotic pouring of steel and stainless steel assures consistency
