Harrison Steel's engineering team is responsible for developing the appropriate methods and design requirements for establishing molding processes. We utilize the most advanced three-dimensional engineering software available and the experience of our seasoned team of engineers to help predict performance and potential defects. Simulations of mold filling and solidification analysis help us "see" issues before a part is ever cast. This capability enables our engineers to leverage data in the design of molds and production processes so that they are correct from the start and end performance is assured. If there is a potential design flaw, we notify customers so that changes can be made before problems occur.

“The methods and rigging engineers at Harrison Steel are as good as you will work with in the industry. Their experience and willingness to collaborate on projects is something our organization has benefited from greatly.” – Casting Buyer, Mining Industry
