Magnesium Castings

Bronze Castings
Aluminum Sand Castings

Key Benefits

 Light Weight
 High Strength
 Reduced Machining Times




    Our aluminum castings are used for their light weight, and are applied to a wide range of commercial and aerospace parts.

    Applications include: racing, medical, environmental testing, boating, machinery, aerospace, military, naval, automotive prototyping, food processing, etc....

    Our induction melting equipment offers us the ability to melt cleanly and without the H2O associated with burning fossil fuels -- that can introduce Hydrogen into the melt. The result is porosity free aluminum.
