Our Shot Sleeve Reconditioning Service Helps You Save

When undertaking a die casting project, tooling costs are usually quite substantial. By choosing Precision Tool Company for shot sleeve reconditioning, you can significantly reduce tooling costs while ensuring quality components. Our process for reconditioning shot sleeves is thorough and reliable. We can repair all manner of wear and tear, such as excessive erosion opposite the pour hole. We carefully rework and inspect each shot sleeve we receive.

Our shot sleeve reconditioning capabilities include:

  • Quick Turnaround Times – At Precision Tool, we can rework your shot sleeves to the ID size you require in just 7-10 days. ┬áThis is thanks to our expertly trained technicians.
  • Thorough Inspection – Shot sleeves we receive can be ultrasonically checked, especially near the pour hole, to establish depth of ID washout opposite the Pour Hole.
  • Precise Specifications – We can rework shot sleeves to a minimum clean-up size or to the exact increment required by the customer.
  • Boring, Grinding, and Honing – All reworked shot sleeves inner diameters are initially bored out. Then ID’s are bored and machine ground to within .0005 inches. This is done because just honing will not correct a bowed shot sleeve and can often create an eccentricity of the ID and OD. The reworked shot sleeves are finally honed to an 8-12 RMS finish, ensuring a superior product.
  • Gas Nitriding – After the process of reconditioning shot sleeves, we polish IDs and use gas nitriding if required.
  • Tool Tagging – We ensure that all tooling is tagged with a new ID size for our customer’s convenience.
