Application

This cast piece is used to secure the leg support on a wheelchair. When a patient wants to change the angle/slant of his leg support, the notched wheel can be loosened and adjusted. By using two notched wheels, the leg support can be adjusted easily and precisely.

Advantages

  • Casting toothing without post-processing
  • Saving material and finishing costs
  • Extremely thin walls can be cast
  • Steel alloy scratch-resistant and suitable for varying loads

Advantage of the CIREX casting process

The design freedom makes the development of complete ‘Near Net Shape’ products possible. This gets rid of mechanical post-processing and results in savings in material costs. Our precise casting process also makes it possible to cast the toothing  without post-processing. The selected steel alloy has a low viscosity, allowing even limited wall thicknesses to be cast immediately and precisely to measure.
