Foundry

The foundry is a gateway operation that converts raw material, combined with precise alloys, into net or near net-shaped configurations. This is the only remaining foundry within the Department of Army. It is a full service facility capable of full scale production. The facility has full metallurgical and NDT support and is a member of the American Foundry Society.

This facility has the capability to cast both ferrous and non-ferrous materials using direct arc and coreless induction furnaces, using both green and Furan chemically bonded sand.
