Sarcol's mission statement is: To
work with our customers to identify the lowest cost solution for
their production needs and continuous quality improvement.
position in the market
SARCOL was established almost 60
years ago, sand casting parts to fight World War II. Over the years
SARCOL has been moving toward combining traditional sand casting
with more advanced and sophisticated mold making techniques. Through
intensive research, our development effort has culminated in a unique
casting process for producing high grade molds in a ceramic cast-to-size
tool production technology. This unique process is called The SARCOL
PROCESS and only SARCOL can provide it. This patented process is
currently being used to produce tools for a very broad range of
products on a global level. Ceramic, cast-to-size technology has
a number of advantages over traditional, machined tooling. These
include more efficient production of multiple cavities,
a superior ability to deal with intricate parting line configurations
and a more cost effective method for creating highly
realistic, three-dimensional surfaces. There are many others...
A broad range of
The SARCOL process is ideal for
plastic and rubber injection molds, zinc die cast, RIM molds and
compression molds. SARCOL castings are currently producing such
automotive parts as steering wheels, airbag covers, gear shift knobs,
brake handles and pedals, arm rests and door panels.
Also, golf grips and racquet handles
for the sporting goods industry, toys and trophies, industrial/gas
masks, glass molds, shake shingles and ceiling tiles, and a wide
variety of other complex molded parts.
A broad range of
SARCOL has also adapted its unique
process for higher tolerance applications. SARCOL's chemically bonded
sand mold production system can be used to produce "near net
shape" mold cavities, mold inserts and cores, which can be
subsequently machined to high tolerance specifications. SARCOL has
successfully teamed up with several machine shops to provide an
overall cost reduction for a variety of mold production applications.
