Superior Innovation, Precision, and ServiceLooking for cost savings? Investment casting may be the answer. Sand Castings, forgings, weldments, fabrications, and machined components are frequently converted to investment casting to reduce cost. Often, investment casting is the ONLY way a part can be manufactured economically.

When properly applied, our advancing technology can offer complex "near net-shapes" that reduce overall manufacturing costs by minimizing material and labor inputs. Parts designs can be lighter in weight, more complex and are available in a wider range of alloys than those offered by other processes. Stronger materials, better surface finishes, thinner walls, difficult internal configurations and closer tolerances than those available through alternate processing techniques are some of the other advantages of the investment casting process.

Our management team has extensive experience in the investment casting industry. We operate under a single tier management system, which allows us to be responsive to the customer’s needs. A significant portion of our growth is derived from customers that have moved tooling to us from other foundries, where they had experienced chronic quality and/or delivery problems.
