When you need top-quality metal castings, turn to the company with the proven ability to perform both in-house machining and brass, bronze and aluminum casting. The vertical integration of our foundry and machining teams allows for immediate, real-time response to an ever-changing production environment. This strategic advantage allows Cast Technologies instantaneous flexibility to meet changes in our foundry customers’ requirements while maintaining the highest quality standards. As the largest aluminum foundry, and the largest brass and bronze foundry in Illinois, we have the experience and expertise in casting aluminum and brass to produce castings ranging in size from less than a pound to hundreds of pounds.
We specialize in the sand casting method of aluminum casting. Our aluminum foundry allows us to handle a wide range of castings. We offer both green sand and no-bake sand casting. We do casting design analysis and modeling in-house using Solidworks and can supply as cast or complete to print. We can also machine and pressure test in-house.
We have the ability to cast over 30 different leaded and non-leaded alloys and were one of the first to pour non-leaded and low-leaded brass. We have invested in the environmental equipment to safely and responsibly pour leaded materials. Stringent controls are in place to maintain a physical separation between the ladles and liners used to produce no-lead brass and those used for other alloys.
Almost our entire copper based product is produced in our green sand foundry. Pouring for all lines is done with a hooded ladle on an overhead track system. Molding options include:
