We have designed & built specialty machines and have on staff master electricians with excellent skills in robotics and control.


GREEN SAND CASTINGS . . . Our expertise in sand castings is in high integrity, complexly cored castings that require an excellent surface finish.  The molding facilities include: Automatic 16X20, squeezers, cope and drag lines, roto-lift and loose floor molding.  Our casting sizes range from 6” square to 50” square, with a maximum weight of 700 pounds.


DRY SAND AND CORE ROOM . . . One high-speed air set lines for intricate and highly accurate castings and is the mainstay of our larger core making. Castings in this process range from 6” square to 96”square with a maximum pour weight of 2000 pounds.  We also have 3 Laempe L-50 high speed cold box machines Capable of blowing 350 pound cores, along with 5 shell core and 4 other cold box machines.
