Precision Sand Casting to Meet Your Specific Demands
Whether you need a few specialty components or a large volume of castings, Badger Alloys is equipped to meet your demands.
Our casting size capabilities range from 1 pound to 4000+ pounds, with induction melting capabilities up to 6,000 pounds.
With 10 different furnace shells we pour a wide variety of ferrous & non-ferrous alloys.
Sand Casting Process
Badger Alloys’ efficient airset, no-bake molding process results in high-quality sand castings for our customers. This process allows for closer dimensional tolerances, with design flexibility to accommodate your most intricate casting shapes.
Many different specialty sands are available for improved surface finishes that meet your requirements. Our sand is cleaned and recycled through our sand reclamation unit - delivering a more efficient, environmentally-resourceful process.
Secondary processing methods -- such as pickling/passivation, polishing, and even stainless steel blast -- are available. Tight control over these processes allows us to produce high quality castings with good performance.
When possible, we prefer to finish your components here at our on-site casting machining shop. This consistency and continuity:
- Shortens production time
- Eliminates errors due to miscommunication between vendors
- Minimizes likelihood of damage that may occur when shipping from the foundry to an outside machine shop
