Three automated mold lines: 2 automated 20" X 30" cope & drag mold lines are equipped with BMM Molding machines and a Sinto brand 20" X 24" matchplate flaskless molding.
Dry sand molding: A Dry Sand continuous mixer adds to our molding process, capacity, and diversity.
Castings: Automated lines are capable of core intensive castings up to 60-pounds.
Sand handling systems: The sand foundry has a self contained sand handling system capable of processing 100 tons of sand per hour by mixing 5,000 pound batches of sand every 90 seconds. Each batch is tested by a Hartley Automatic Controller for proper moisture content & compactability. Each molding machine is replenished automatically by a complex conveyor system traveling through 400 feet of underground tunnels.
Core production: Edelbrock core production is anchored by (26) core machines, this includes (3) cold box and (23) shell machines.
Robotic Ladling Systems: 2 ABB and one Shamrock 100 lb. bottom pour ladling robots pour aluminum at a preset value for unsurpassed quality. The unique bottom pour design fills the ladle below the metal surface resulting in reduced dross and turbulence for a more consistent casting quality.
