Foundry Capabilities

Flexible Job Shop

Steel Foundry CapabilitiesWhile we predominately pour stainless steel alloys, our facility is fully capable of pouring gray iron, ductile iron, nickel base, non-leaded bronzes and low carbon steels.

As for the size of castings we pour, everything besides our bronze alloys has a pour weight capacity of 4,000 lbs. which usually translates into castings of 2,000 lbs. or less, depending on yield. For bronze alloys, our pour weight capacity is 1,000 lbs., and the resulting yield is usually 500 lbs. or less.

Our specialty is in short run, pressure-containing castings requiring multiple grades of metal. Steps of our process can be rearranged or removed, contingent on the customer’s specifications. Our flexibility as a job shop foundry allows us to provide superior service to our customers.
