Smith Foundry. Practical Experience. Innovative Design.
At Smith Foundry we specialize in low and medium volume production run castings ranging from several ounces up to 250 lbs.
- Short Run Production Castings (< 100 pcs)
- Medium Run Production Castings (100-10,000 pcs)
We offer a versatile line of core making processes. Shell, oil sand and airset (sodium silicate and phenolic urethane) cores form the backbone of our coring capabilities. These processes, in conjunction with our valued core suppliers, enable us to offer creative solutions to your coring problems.
With a variety of core and mold making processes at our disposal, we can handle the jobs that others can't. Our two Beardsley and Piper 2016 automatic molding machines and 2620 automatic molding machine are the workhorses of the shop. Versatile machines built for all levels of production, these molding lines are capable of handling castings ranging from ounces up to 75 pounds. Of course, dimensional limits exist within this weight range which could limit the machine's ability to handle your application.
A 28x36 Osborn cope and drag line (12 over 12 flask) services larger size low to medium volume production work. Quality iron castings up to 250 lbs can be produced using this process. Cope and drag molding is also an option for castings that exceed the physical size limitations of the automated equipment at our disposal.
