    Shelmet In The News

    Shelmet provides highly detailed investment castings worldwide while incorporating designs other firms cannot. Precision investment castings eliminate most, if not all, secondary machine operations by the customer to yield cost savings through lower waste and faster delivery times.

    We push process limits to incorporate many designs which are not obtainable in traditional machining or other processes. A no obligation investment casting process recommendation saves many customers unexpected production issues to get your parts to market fast.

    At Shelmet, we pour over 100 alloys and create custom alloys designed to meet your project specifics. Our emphasis is stainless steel, cobalt and nickel bases.

    With more than 50 years of casting experience Shelmet’s certified Six Sigma trained staff and ISO certified facility provides consistent quality from one casting to thousands; at the same time meeting the tight budgetary guidelines our clients expect.
