Custom Metal Casting Services

At PERIDOT, we specialize in providing custom metal casting services for customers in a wide range of industries. We offer insert, foundry, sand, die, and investment castings, as well as lost wax, and permanent mold services for aluminum, iron, steel, bronze, and zinc castings.

Our engineering staff partners with customers to determine the best casting method for their product and application. Whether it is a prototype or high volume production run, we have a method available to fit the job.

Our staff is trained in meeting any applicable standards including UL, ANSI, AS, ASME, ASTM, CE, DOT, Mil-Spec, and FDA specifications. We operate with standard straightness and flatness tolerances of .002” per inch, with a max tolerance of .040”. Wall thickness tolerances range from as tight as ±.005” in plaster-casting to +/-0.015” in investment-casting to +/-0.030” for sand-casting. In addition to casting, we offer many secondary services including machining, painting, plating, E-coating, powder coating, and heat treating. We offer a very fast turnaround time of approximately 4 weeks to go from CAD model to actual casting, and provide emergency rush services and JIT service as needed. For more information about our casting capabilities, please see the table below, or contact us directly.
