FSPrecision – located in the Los Angeles, CA suburb of Rancho Dominguez – has been producing titanium investment castings for nearly 50 years. Our reliable process, dedication to improvement, and high standards give FS Precision a reputation for unequaled results and customer support. This reputation would not be possible without an exceptional team to back our product; and we are looking for people like you to fill important metal casting jobs to become part of our great team!

From the deepest ocean floor to the stratosphere and beyond, our titanium castings are at the forefront of modern technology. FS Precision near-net titanium castings are enabling exploration initiatives from our world’s oceans with the Wave Glider to the wonders of the air with our fuel system valves and manifolds for aircraft and space vehicles.

We outline our titanium investment casting process below from start to finish to identify the critical roles that FS Precision is seeking to fill with qualified professionals. Talented people like you are required in support of our mission to deliver superior investment castings and unmatched process control.

Metal Casting Jobs – Wax Pattern Technicians

The beginning phase of our investment casting process involves creating a wax model – or ‘pattern’ – of the final product that captures all of the design complexities and intricacies off the finished component. At FS Precision, this pattern is most often manufactured through injection molding. Injection molding provides a stable and repeatable process to ensure an efficient and high-quality casting production line. Once multiple patterns have been created, they are welded together in a ‘tree’ using a hydrogen torch, known as “water welding.” This allows for multiple castings to be produced simultaneously. We are currently seeking both Wax Injectors and Assemblers to support our wax operations. See below for a brief description of these positions.

Wax Injection Technician

Injects wax into mold cavities which are subsequently replaced by molten metal to produce metal castings.  Activates machines to hydraulically inject wax into mold cavities according to specifications and following established procedures.  Assembles molds and may place inserts into the mold cavity to produce special metal casting configurations.

Wax Assembly Technician

Prepares wax patterns and gating wax for assembly by trimming wax flash and blending sharp corners.  Assembles wax patterns into wax trees as described in casting specific wax technique cards.  Seals wax joints and cleans assembled trees.  Documents daily production rates.

Ceramic Mold

After the wax trees are created, the next step at FS Precision is to create the mold for investment casting. The tree, comprising multiple wax patterns, is dipped into a tank of viscous ceramic slurry. After the tree is removed from the dipping tank, the slurry is allowed to solidify, thus creating a mold encasing the wax patterns. The mold tree is then placed in a high-temperature furnace and heated to melt the wax patterns. The liquid wax is drained and burned from the ceramic mold, leaving behind a tree of hollow ceramic molds of the final casting design.

Molten Titanium

The ceramic mold tree is next placed in FS Precision’s Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR) furnace. Using an electric arc, a titanium electrode is melted and the molten titanium alloy is collected in a crucible. The crucible is tipped, allowing the molten titanium to be poured into the ceramic molds.

Post-Cast Processing

After the titanium has solidified, the ceramic molds are no longer required and they are therefore destroyed to remove the castings. This yields a tree of nearly completed titanium castings. All that remains are a series of post- casting processes and final inspections to ensure that the castings meet all required specifications and FS Precision quality requirements. To support these post-casting processes, FS Precision is currently seeking Welders and Finishers I, II, & III.

Metal Casting Jobs – Finishing Technician

Works on cast parts using various hand tools and finishing equipment to meet its required finished shape, dimension, surface finish, and mechanical strength requirements.  Removes shell materials from cast tree.  Masks casting discontinuities prior to chemical milling process.  Removes casting flaws and prepares cast parts for weld repair.  Welds cavities formed from weld preparation process.  Blends welded and masked areas.  Transports castings for further production operations.
