- New patterns in wood, metal or
plastic can be made very competively by well-equipped local
pattern shops. Engineering changes and maintenance of your
patterns are done by our in-house pattern maker. Heated pattern
storage is furnished for customers' patterns in an effort to
provide longer service life.
- Cores are made in four types:
shell, airset, warm box and oil. Depending on quality, finish and
tolerance, we can provide a core to fit your casting needs in the
most economical way.
- Primary melting is done
economically by two (2) #3 1/2 cupolas capable of six tons per
hour. Iron chemistry is controlled by spectograph. Testing is also
available with a Digi-Lab on each melt charge. Process control
test bars are cast for every heat to monitor tensile strength,
brinnell hardness and machining specifications. Spectograph for
daily metallurgical control.
- A variety of tensile strengths and
hardness ranges can be specified and certified to meet your
requirements. Local heat treatment enables us to further modify
mechanical properties to meet your engineering and machining
- Molding is designed for flexibility
and process control. This allows us to continually service our
customers changing requirements.
- The process of final finishing from
de-gating, cutoff and blasting (spin, table, tumble_ to chipping
and grinding, insures a quality part to specification and
tolerance. Special services include brinnell, ultrasonic and
hydrostatic for pressure vessels, visual and dimensional
inspection is routine. Primer painting also is available. You, our
customer, determine our final finishing process.
