Installation of a ShurCast™ 450S casting machine in 2014 at the new R&D Center at Wagstaff, Inc. in Spokane, WA is shown. The R&D Center was largely under wraps until the recent Casting Confidence Week in September 2015 when an industry first occurred. Attendees at the convention center in downtown Spokane were able to view the first ever automated casting of an ingot at the R&D Center using a video monitoring system initiated from a remote location.

The casting cylinder (pictured) accommodates a 7 m cast. Production size billet and ingot in common and aerospace alloys can be cast in the 2,322 sq m center, which also includes a state-of-the-art furnace, filtration, casting, and water quality systems.
