People choose Protocast Inc to be their Denver metal shop of choice because our company manufactures metal components in prototype and low-volume production quantities better than anyone else around — and we do it for an affordable rate. No matter if you have one part or 12,000 that need manufacturing, we offer the functional components, assemblies, and casting knowledge to bring you a viable solution within a reasonable timeframe. We understand that many of our customers are working with challenging delivery schedules, so they need to find a local foundry that can accommodate such requests.
Protocast Inc. was founded with a cornerstone principle being that we work diligently to meet the unique needs of our individual customers. When you choose us, you get access to our team of engineers, who are able to provide consulting services at your request. If you are in need of a second opinion, the clean and efficient manufacturing we offer is only supplemented by our expert metal workers and engineers on staff.
However, this is part two of a two-part series, as the title no doubt gave away. So instead of describing the intricacies of our casting processes and other services, we will be taking a trip back in time. In our previous post, we highlighted the early beginnings of metal casting, starting with the ancient gods of lore, from whom humans stole the power of fire, and, by extension, metalworking and casting. We eventually talked about the actual history of metal casting, starting with the oldest known cast still in existence, the copper frog, and ending with the (re)invention of producing cast crucible steel.
All that to say, you should check out part one when you get a chance, even if your interest in casting is merely mild — you might just learn an interesting tidbit or two you could get a chance to share at your next dinner party! More seriously though, we find this stuff interesting, though we are slightly biased. Either way, keep reading if you want to learn more about the more recent history of metal casting, brought to you by your local Denver foundry, Protocast Inc.!
