The benefits of brass casting are numerous and significant for various industries served by Cast Technologies. Brass casting offers exceptional strength and durability, making it an ideal choice for industries such as marine, industrial, generator sets, agriculture, and construction equipment. With our vertical integration of foundry and machining teams, we’ve the expertise and experience to produce high-quality brass castings in a wide range of sizes, from less than a pound to hundreds of pounds.
One of the key advantages of brass casting is its resistance to corrosion. Brass is known for its excellent resistance to saltwater and other harsh environments, making it a popular choice for marine applications. Additionally, brass castings can withstand high temperatures, making them suitable for industrial and generator set applications.
Another benefit of brass casting is its versatility. Brass can be easily cast into complex shapes and intricate designs, allowing for the production of custom components tailored to specific industry needs. This flexibility makes brass casting a cost-effective solution for a wide range of applications.
Furthermore, brass castings have excellent electrical conductivity, making them suitable for electrical and electronic components. The superior thermal conductivity of brass also makes it an excellent choice for heat exchangers and other heat transfer applications.
At Cast Technologies, we frequently produce various types of brass castings to meet the specific needs of our clients in different industries.
Brass castings are widely used in a range of applications due to their excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and aesthetic appeal.
One of the most common types of brass castings is the plumbing fitting castings, which are used in plumbing systems for connecting pipes and regulating the flow of water or gas. These castings are typically made using the sand casting method and can be produced in various sizes and shapes to fit different plumbing requirements.
Another type of brass casting is the electrical component castings, which are used in electrical systems for conducting and distributing electricity. These castings are often made using the investment casting method to achieve intricate designs and precise dimensions.
Additionally, we also produce brass castings for decorative purposes, such as ornamental hardware, statues, and jewelry. These castings are usually made using the lost wax casting method to achieve intricate details and a smooth surface finish.
To begin the brass casting process, we utilize a precise and efficient method known as sand casting. Sand casting involves creating a mold made of sand, which is then filled with molten brass to form the desired shape. This method is preferred for its flexibility, as it allows for the casting of complex and intricate designs.
The first step in sand casting is to create a pattern, which is a replica of the final product. This pattern is then used to make a mold by packing sand around it. Once the mold is ready, molten brass is poured into the mold through a channel called a sprue. The brass fills the mold and takes the shape of the pattern.
After the brass has solidified, the sand mold is broken away, revealing the newly cast brass part. The casting may then undergo additional processes such as finishing, machining, or heat treatment, depending on the specific requirements of the project.

We supply brass castings to a wide range of industries, including marine, industrial, generator sets, agriculture, and construction equipment.
Brass castings are highly valued in the marine industry due to their excellent corrosion resistance and durability in saltwater environments. They’re used in various components such as propellers, valves, and fittings.
In the industrial sector, brass castings are commonly used in pumps, compressors, and heat exchangers, thanks to their thermal conductivity and resistance to wear and corrosion.
Generator sets rely on brass castings for components like housings, impellers, and exhaust manifolds due to their strength and resistance to high temperatures.
In agriculture, brass castings are used in irrigation systems, sprayers, and machinery parts, as they can withstand harsh outdoor conditions and provide reliable performance.
Brass castings also play a crucial role in construction equipment, where they’re used in hydraulic systems, fittings, and connectors for their strength and resistance to wear.
When selecting a brass casting provider, it’s important to consider their expertise, capabilities, and track record in delivering high-quality castings.
