With more than 50 years of metal casting experience, Richmond Industries can assist its customers in determining the best process and materials for their parts based on size, complexity, and volume.
We specialize in sand casting, the most widely used casting process. This process involves heating up the alloy in a furnace, ladling and pouring it into the cavity of the sand mold, which is formed from a pattern. The sand mold separates along the parting line and the solidified casting part can be removed. The expandability of the sand molding process means it can be used with almost any alloy.
We can cast from ounces up to 2,000 lbs. This means we can handle everything from a single piece up to thousands of pieces.
Our foundry consists of two separate sand systems which feed a 14 by 19 Hunter 10H and a 20 by 20 BMM (British Molding Machine). These molding lines are supported by six induction furnaces and three separate Inductotherm power supplies ( 1- 750KW dual trak, and 2 – 500KW dual traks).
At Richmond Industries, meeting customer requirements comes first. Upon completion of the tooling, we produce and evaluate samples to guarantee that the customer’s requirements have been met. Once sample approval is obtained from the customer, production is implemented. Richmond Industries, Inc. utilizes a disciplined system of process controls to ensure that production castings meet customer requirements to ensure customer satisfaction.
Alloys – C81100, C83450, C83600, C87300, C89833, C91300, C92200, and C95500 are some of the common alloys that are poured, but special alloys can be used upon request. Click here for a list of alloys we pour.
We will quote any brass, bronze or aluminum sand cast alloy, and we can meet any commercial or governmental specifications.
In addition to high quality casted parts, Richmond can manage your needs for a broad array of value added services, including machining, painting, polishing, plating, assembly as well as provide tooling. Third party inspection is also available upon request.
