  • What is the approximate turnaround time for an order?

    Upon approval of pattern equipment, AMERICAN Castings can have production parts to the customer within approximately 6 weeks for many orders.

  • What information do you need from me to quote on my project?

    The sales representative will discuss project details with you, including drawings and/or models, casting weight, use of existing or new tooling, type(s) of iron required, quality standards that apply, production quantity and estimated annual usage.

  • How can your modeling capability benefit my project?

    Our engineers can simulate your casting, specific to material and chemistry, to predict its transition from liquid to solid state. Known as solidification modeling, this tool helps identify trouble areas related to shrinkage or metal flow and provides information for improving a design before it enters production.

  • What quality assurance measures do you take?

    From receipt of raw materials to final inspection of your product, American Castings uses a certified quality assurance system to ensure the casting meets or exceeds the mutually agreed upon quality standard. The analytical laboratory is equipped with the latest tools for sand, metallurgical and mechanical testing. The sand testing system includes the latest advancements in electronics, sensors, and digital process technology to yield accurate and repeatable results. In addition, American Castings’ sand lab compares its test results to supplier testing results as an extra measure of accuracy, consistency and control. Metallurgical and mechanical analysis of carefully prepared samples document the microstructure, chemical, strength and elasticity properties of the metal and confirm that the product meets or exceeds customer and applicable industry standards.
