INDIMET SOURCING

India has emerged as a premier destination for product sourcing, with companies worldwide choosing to import from the country. Fueled by remarkable growth and transformation, skilled workers, improving infrastructure, cultural compatibility, and a favorable regulatory environment, India has simplified and reduced the cost of sourcing.

Indimet is your source for made-to-print metal components, castings, forgings, gears, and machined components out of India.

  • Grey and Ductile Iron Castings – Sand and Shell Mold
  • Steel Castings – Investment
  • Aluminum Castings – Pressure and Gravity Fed
  • Hot Forgings
  • Machined Components Out of Bar
  • Gears
  • Stampings & Sub-assemblies
  • Many Post-Treatment Operations

PRODUCTS

MACHININGS


Indimet produces all types of components using high-end machining skills on regular CNC machines, fourth axis VMC machines, and HMC machines with 10 micron to 20 micron tolerance. 

We have an in-house lab equipped with measuring instruments such as digital height gauge (Trimos), digital micrometer, dial gauges, bore gauges, hardness tester, roughness tester, depth verniers, and receiving gauges.

We perform third-party CMM, counter tester, profile projector, radiography, and more.

HOT FORGINGS


Forging is the process of deforming metal into a predetermined shape using presses and hammers. It’s a cost-effective way of achieving a uniform microstructure and strong parts of various geometries. Another benefit is that there’s no porosity on forgings.

In forging, steel is heated to at least 1,000 degrees Celsius, creating a small layer of iron oxide called “scales.”

Indimet has competitive pricing on closed and open die hot forgings.

Material: Alloy, stainless steel, all carbon steels

Weight Ranges: 400 g – 500 kg

Value-added Operations: Normalizing, heat treatment, machining, and plating

GREY AND DUCTILE IRON CASTINGS


We work directly with our network of foundries to get you high-quality castings at a low cost. Our casting are broken down into two primary methods of manufacturing:

  • Shell mold casting
  • Sand casting

We ensure a higher frequency of test bar pours at the end of each heat, qualify foundries based on best practices, and have regular audits to ensure quality.

Material: EN-GJL-200 to EN-GJL-350 for grey iron

EN-GJS 400-18, 450-10, 500-7, 600-3, and 700-2 (and their ASTM equivalents.)

Weight ranges :

  • 50 gm – 5 kg for shell mold
  • 500 gm – 150 kg for sand machine mold
  • 150 kg – 1000 kg for sand manual mold

Value-added operations: Heat treatment, painting, and plating (up to 200 hours salt spray), proof machining, and finish machining.

Quality control & equipment: Spark electrode for chemistry, BHN hardness tester, micro structure analysis, tensile test, and Charpy/Izod impact test.

GRAVITY/ PERMANENT MOLD CASTINGS


We begin the gravity process by preheating the mold to 150 – 200 degrees Celsius (300 – 400 degrees Fahrenheit) to ease flow and reduce thermal damage to the casting. The mold cavity is then coated with a refractory material or a mold wash, preventing the casting from sticking to the mold and prolonging mold life.

We produce a variety of gravity mold castings, from aluminum to copper.

Material: LM4, LM6, LM25, 713, A356 (ASTM B108)

Weight ranges: 200 gm – 150 kg

INVESTMENT CASTING


Investment casting is a manufacturing process in which a wax pattern is coated with refractory ceramic material. Once the ceramic material becomes hardened, its internal geometry takes the shape of the casting. The wax is melted out and molten metal is poured into the cavity where the wax pattern once was. The metal then solidifies within the ceramic mold and the metal casting is broken out.

We have products ranging from 300 gm to 12 kg with a potential of up to 240 kg.

PRESSURE DIE CASTING


Pressure die casting is a quick, reliable, and cost-effective manufacturing method used to produce a high volume of metal components with tight tolerances. Essentially, the pressure die casting process involves injecting a molten metal alloy into a steel mold (or tool) using high pressure. Pressure die castings have very good surface finishes and are dimensionally consistent with thin walls, so they’re significantly lighter in weight.

Indimet offers pressure die casting products ranging from 200 gm to 4 kg.

Material: ALSI 9CU3, LM2, LM5, LM20, LM24, and A360 (ASTMB85)

HOT CHAMBER


Hot chamber machinery is used for materials with lower melting points such as zinc and magnesium. Advantages of the hot chamber process include reduced porosity. This method is suitable for mass quantities with small to medium-sized casting.

Indimet currently offers products ranging from 250 gm to 1.07 kg.

Material: Zinc

ALUMINIUM EXTRUSION


Aluminum extrusion is used to transform aluminum alloy into objects that have a definitive cross-sectional profile for a wide range of uses. The extrusion process in metals may also increase the strength of the material.

Indimet offers a variety of aluminum extruded jobs.

BRIGHT PLATES


Bright plates are used in hoist and gear box assemblies.

We offer a wide variety of bright plates with various operations such as laser marking and VMC machining with arcor plating.

PRESS PARTS


Indimet Pvt Ltd brings a wide range of press parts, ranging from 4 gm to 4 kg. Everything is done under one roof, including punching, blanking, embossing, bending, and more. Made from Sheet metal. Machine press capacity is from two tons to 400 tons.
