Capabilities

Molding

Our three types of molding processes were developed with your needs in mind. We utilize:

  • Phenolic Urethane “No-Bake” Sand Molding
    This process incorporates production flexibility, minimal tooling costs, small to large run manufacturing quantities, and high-quality finishes on produced castings.
  • Shell Molding
    This process utilizes thermally activated resin bonded sand yielding castings with superior as-cast finishes, excellent dimensional stability, and provides the capability for high production quantities.
  • Ceramic Molding
    This process utilizes a special blend of sands which are then subject to a specialized baking process which yields castings with dimensional stability and surface finishes similar to those obtained with the lost wax process.

Melting

Big project? Tough application? With our technical expertise in casting over one hundred different high alloy stainless steels and superalloys, utilizing five induction furnaces on 2 different power supplies, we have the capabilities and team to accomplish your toughest requirements. Our individual casting weights range from 2 pounds to 5,500 pounds. And, our induction furnaces provide excellent temperature melt control, flexibility in melting, with accurate and repeatable chemistries for all alloys. Throughout our process, we have specialized capabilities, like “Teapot” ladles, used to pour metal into molds producing clean defect-free castings, control pouring rates, and maintain accurate temperature control. Additionally, chemistries are assured using internal spectrographic measurements with computerized charge and final additions calculations to the heat. We’ve put rigor into our processes to yield top results for you.
