Fusion Plate Chaplets can be manufactured in a variety of ways and in a range of metals. They are used in castings where two headed chaplets do not knit or fuse creating a defect in the casting, usually porosity. By adding a third plate know as the center dam into the design of the chaplet, this feature can eliminate the defect in the casting. Pending your application we can best match the appropriate manufacturing process to suit your specifications.
Because of the various manufacturing processes these chaplets can have grooved or plain stems. Perforations pierced in the plates. Extensions or pins riveted or welded which protrude from the plates. Center dams can be larger or smaller than the outside plates. Have serrations or smooth edges. Additional design modifications can be integrated to meet your specifications. Creating a Fusion Plate Chaplet for your specification is based on the application required.
