The casting process at Schaler Manufacturing
includes the following steps:

MODEL MAKING

We create a metal pattern of your design; this is used to build the molds used in casting. Experienced model-makers can recommend modifications to reduce costs and improve the quality of your finished pieces.

MOLD MAKING

We work with traditional rubber molds that are created from metal models. These molds remain durable and functional for many, many runs.

Mold sizes include:
Flasks: 4" to 7" diameter x 6" to 12" tall
Rubber Mold: 9" to 18" diameter x 1" to 4" thick

CASTING

We utilize two methods of casting: the lost wax process for precious metals and centrifugal for pewter casting.

FINISHING

• Hand and Vibratory
• Machine High Polish
• Antique Pewter Finish
• Hand High Gloss Polish

• Bright Pewter Finish

PACKAGING

Bagging, boxing, wrapping – we can customize the way your finished piece is shipped to your specifications.
