The Technical Department at Eastern Alloys focuses mainly on two main aspects: Problem Solving, Technology Transfer & Market Development. We provide die casting consulting free of charge to our customers.

Die casters must apply the latest technologies in order to stay competitive. Customers benefit from Eastern Alloys' introduction of PQ2 principles to calibrate and measure the capabilities of die casting machines.

This new technology, coupled with the latest gate and die-design concepts, assists customers to achieve faster production on smaller casting machines at lower processing costs and higher quality levels. Eastern works with customers at seminars and in their plants to demonstrate these benefits as part of a continuing technology transfer program.

As an added service provided to preferred customers, Eastern Alloys makes its A2LA certified lab available for chemical analysis (OES/ICP) on samples of customer's products.

Derek L. Cocks - former Manager of Customer Service Engineering - presenting
