City Aluminum Foundry operates a modern facility to handle most sizes and types of aluminum castings. We recently added a state-of-the-art no-bake production line in a new 11,000 sq. ft. expansion.
OUR NEW FACILITY IS LARGER TO SERVE OUR CUSTOMERS
City Aluminum Foundry has added a new 11,000 sq. ft. building, to our existing 23,000 sq.ft. facility, with a state-of-the-art no-bake production line.
The Palmer roll-over allows us to draw molds out mechanically to give a good draw every time on very large molds.
Our no-bake knockout process separates the part form the mold and then thermally reclaims the sand for use again.
This system uses a Palmer mixer, with a turntable and a draw station that can handle a 60 x 80 inch mold with a draw of 30 inches.
The Palmer mixer uses thermally reclaimed sand to face the mold and mechanically reclaimed sand to keep costs down.
Two 2500 pound Dynarad electric furnaces support production on this line.
OUR QUALITY LAB
Our Angstrom spectrograph is used to assure that all metal poured meets Aluminum Association chemical standards.
Our Herschal “Gas Tech” RPT gas porosity testing system provides a highly accurate method of monitoring the gas level of each furnace melt
A Dietert Detroit sand lab helps provide accurate measurement of variables that must be controlled to produce castings of high quality.
