Vacuum-Assist as a Corrective Process

Vacuum-assist can be a highly effective remediation tool when a casting presents unacceptable or undesirable fallout rates due to poor fill or excessive air and gas porosity. Midland Technologies provides the service of reviewing specific casting porosity and fill issues to evaluate applicability of vacuum-assist.

The first step is to fill out our Block Sizing Form so that we can confirm evacuation areas required to remove gas and air from the cavity within your shot parameters.

Additionally, when you provide pictures and details of the porosity issue along with a layout of the die we are able to thoroughly evaluate the applicability of vacuum-assist or vent blocks to the project, and supply a plan for implementation.
