Core making is a craft that combines the latest technology with more traditional practical processes. Our core making capability is essential to achieving on-time delivery, and we supply our customers' needs for cores utilizing coldbox, shell or baked oil processes.
Sand cores are used in the molding process to shape the casting for the customer's product. We manufacture isocure, oil and shell cores using automated equipment and manual fabrication. The sand recipe is controlled by an automated Muller system to ensure uniformity and quality. Sand is delivered to the core machine where it is activated by gas injection and compressed into the desired shape using core box patterns. Additional machining may be required to assemble or finish the core. Cores are inspected to ensure quality castings. Bar code labels are used for inventory management.
