Experts in Casting Platinum Group Metals

Your trusted partner for the highest quality platinum casting services.

TechForm was founded in 1994 by Teresa Frye and the late Dr. Helmut Frye. Originally established to serve the medical industry’s high temperature casting needs, TechForm’s technology was also ideally suited for newly emerging demands for platinum group metals in the early nineties. The unique, high refractory shell casting system that TechForm employs is very versatile and can be customized for the specific needs of many alloy formulas and geometries.

25 years later, our mission remains the same. We continuously strive to push the envelope on technical forming and to be leaders in platinum casting. Early adoption of promising technologies and keeping one eye firmly on the future is in the fabric of who we are. Check out our two decades of published research for the proof!
