The Culture of Castheon

Unleashing the power of innovation and creativity, the Castheon name was born from the mind of a visionary leader in the aerospace industry, Dr. Youping Gao. The name is derived from Greek mythology and Pantheon history, meaning “Where the Metal Gods Meet”, it is also associated with the Chinese term “triumph voyager”. The name serves as a powerful symbol of the vital role played by metal additive innovation in hypersonic, military, and defense sectors.

As a true innovator in the field of metal additive manufacturing, Dr. Gao boasts 20 years of unmatched experience and has developed the iconic Gao Block, which is depicted in the company’s new logo. The Gao Block is a physical metallurgy-based creation that accelerates and enhances the improvement of AM parameters and microstructures, resulting in the strongest possible material strength. Not only does it quicken the AM process parameter development, but it also helps enhance the microstructure for top-notch material qualities. A seamless build of a Gao Block without any distortions is a clear indicator of successful AM parameters for a particular alloy.

Castheon is poised to take the aerospace industry to new heights and lead the way in the use of metal additive innovation and technology. Castheon’s mission is to push the boundaries of what is possible and drive progress forward in the hypersonic and military and defense sectors.
