Two continuous airset/no-bake sand mixers producing cores and molds at a rate of 300-400 lb/min feed the pouring operations. Complex cores are either blown or produced via the patternless 3D sand printing process.
Non-ferrous alloy requirements are serviced by 50# and 600# gas melters located in plant #1. These units are capable of handling the most common commercially available aluminum and zinc alloys. Solution heat treating and artificial aging of aluminum alloys, as well as stress relieving of ferrous alloys, is done on-site in one of our two batch heat treat ovens.
Ferrous alloys are induction melted in plant #2. Sand molds up to 1250 lbs can be poured. With each heat, chemistries are checked and validated via spectrometer and test bars are poured and pulled to ensure conformance to ASTM and customer specific specifications.
