Palcam considers the shot sleeve as one of the most important pieces of tooling within the HPDC process.  It is a relatively high wear item which needs to operate within a balanced dimensional and temperature range.  Palcam designs and builds shot sleeves to manage this thermal balance from end to end and top to bottom.  Using high quality steel and the latest techniques in machining and bore finishing, we strive to make a long lasting sleeve which continually performs within its operating temperature range.  Whether it's a standard sleeve or a fully thermally controlled sleeve with substitute inserts, Palcam can ensure a sleeve which allows for consistent production process while maintaining casting quality and reduced wear.
