Castool takes on the greatest challenges facing Die Casters and Extruders today. Our modular, system-based products, unmatched expertise and ability to create customized solutions for individual clients are industry-leading.
Many of Castool’s products, materials and processes are patented, and all Castool products promote energy conservation and are environmentally friendly. Our onsite service, integration and warranties are the best in the business.
Castool’s most important contribution is its introduction of the System Approach to production – that for any Die Casting or Extrusion process, no single component can be evaluated in isolation. Understanding how they interact is the key to improvement, and properly employed, this holistic approach invariably increases productivity.
The ultimate production system has all major interacting components designed and produced by the same supplier – providing the unique benefits of undivided responsibility. This is the Castool advantage.
Exco Technologies Limited, Castool’s parent corporation, is a multinational group of 17 companies with more than 6,600 employees. It is a major technology provider serving the extrusion, die casting and automotive industries in the global market. Castool Tooling Systems has 168 employees at its two locations in Canada and Thailand.
Castool’s newest plant in Thailand – aptly named Castool 180 because of its location half way around the world from the plant in Canada – has allowed them to efficiently service the global market.
CASTOOL NEWS & EVENTS
CASTOOL MAKES EXTRUSION BETTER
No single component of the extrusion production process should be examined or evaluated individually. Each interacts with at least one other complementary element of the process. If the interacting elements are equally efficient, they will reinforce and enhance the function of each other. Only if the entire production process is considered as an integrated system, with all parts operating together in common cause, can maximum efficiency be approached.
CASTOOL MAKES DIE CASTING BETTER
Any die caster knows how to produce large, thin, convoluted aluminum castings for the automotive industry. It is already being done quite satisfactorily and profitably in large quantities. There are no secrets. Knowing how to do it and actually doing it, however, are two very different things. When theory is finally replaced by reality, the most fundamental precept of die casting for the automotive industry can be found in the old adage: a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
