The Best Equipment

Signicast consistently invests in our Finishing Division to ensure our machine tools remain top-of-the-line. All machinery receives scheduled maintenance so unexpected shutdowns won’t interfere with your lead times. In the event a tool may need maintenance during a run, our in-house tool room offers immediate assistance. We can accommodate unforeseen tooling issues in hours while other investment casting companies have to outsource their tooling repairs—which can take days!
