Our Facilities

Our facilities give us the ability to produce batches of proprietary alloys ranging from several tons to a few kilograms; provide material certification and analysis; post-cast processing to provide material with a specific temper, aging and heat treatment.

Floor Plan 

Our 9,000 sq. ft. building contains space for meetings, analysis, machining, materials handling, small foundry, DC Casting and Twin Roll Casting.
