The heart of Cast Technologies is our casting foundry. We specialize in producing high-quality casting. To do this, we’ve chosen the best industrial equipment available. Paired with our experienced workforce, quality materials and strict quality-control procedures, we are confident that we produce the very best cast aluminum, brass and bronze components available anywhere.
Cast Technologies is both the largest aluminum sand foundry and the largest brass and bronze sand casting foundry in Illinois. As such, we can produce a wide range of castings in all these metals, ranging in size from under one pound to hundreds of pounds. Our ability to pour over 30 different brass and bronze alloys sets us apart from many of our competitors.
We can meet any challenge our customers bring to us. We will collaborate with you to make sure your component is produced with the exact characteristics, quality and strength you need.
We have been pouring brass since 1887 and today we pour more than 30 different brass and bronze alloys. One of these is low-leaded brass, which we have been pouring since its inception. We have placed stringent controls in place to maintain a physical separation between the ladles and liners used to produce “no-lead brass” and those used for other alloys.
With a whole range of manufacturing equipment and a crew of dedicated craftspeople, we are confident we can fabricate virtually any aluminum, brass or bronze component you need.
Almost our entire copper-based product is produced in our green sand foundry. Molding options include:
Green sand casting is an ancient technology still used today. It is an economical, efficient and versatile casting material that can produce highly detailed components. It will leave a slightly rough surface, so machining is usually required to finish the parts. Fortunately, our on-site CNC machine shop works hand-in-hand with our casting foundry. Cast Technologies has six furnaces with collection and 100,000 pounds per day capacity.
Any component you can make using green sand can also be made using no-bake molding, also known as air set. However, no-bake has some capabilities that green sand molding does not. It is a good choice for more complex components. If no-bake or air set casting is the method best suited for the parts you need us to fabricate, our casting foundry has the capabilities you need.
Talk to us. Our experienced team is happy to discuss your individual situation. Depending on the level of complexity, the cost, the size of the production run planned and other factors, we will help you determine the manufacturing process that will give you the desired results at the best price. We have multiple process options in our casting foundry and can work with you to decide the process and equipment that will give you exactly the product you need.
Cast Technologies is your expert aluminum sand casting provider. Our aluminum casting abilities include:
Cast Technologies casts a large number of alloys, each with its own strengths. If you’re putting together a prototype and are unsure which alloy would work best for your application, talk to us. We have expertise across multiple different industries and can collaborate with you as you finalize your design.
Aluminum alloys we cast include:
Our aluminum product can be produced with:
Modern molding machines make casting safer and easier while producing higher quality moldings.
For Core Making:
Using a core allows a molded part to have an internal cavity. In some cases, the core is a one-use item that must be destroyed in order to remove it from the newly cast part. We have multiple core-making machines to allow us to custom make these items as needed.
At Cast Technologies, we believe safety and quality go hand-in-hand. Maintaining a safe, well-ordered workplace with high standards is the best way to produce high-quality products that always meet our customers’ most stringent tolerances. Cast Technologies places a very high value on worker safety, environmental protection and quality control. We have invested in the environmental equipment to safely and responsibly pour leaded materials.
We also have the equipment to machine and pressure test in-house, leading to higher-quality parts for you. It is this testing equipment and our procedures that allow us to stand behind our work with confidence. Talk to us about our Quality Record. We will happily share it with you at any time!
