Floor Molded Sand Castings

The floor molding area is comprised of 4 molding stations. Parts up to 10’x10’ are produced by skilled craftspeople. Aluminum Alloys is currently the leading producer of large sand castings in the United States. Each year we produce over 6,000 sand castings weighing 100 pounds or more, spread over 120 different parts.

Pattern making requires a high degree of attention to detail. In addition to our own pattern shop, we call on specialists in the field to supply quality patterns in wood and metal match plates.

Good core making design and manufacturing is inherent to producing quality castings. The 2 cold set core machines fill large core boxes at rates of 300 to 500 pounds per minute. Oil based and shell core making equipment can meet the most complicated design demands with the least expensive cost.

Single tilt pour technology and expertise have been combined to produce extremely large and complex castings on a production basis. Many of these castings meet ASME Boiler Code requirements for pressure tightness. Each year, we pour more than 6,000 castings weighing 100 pounds or more, with more weighing in excess of 250 pounds.
