Elyria Foundry Capabilities

Plant Capabilities

With 5 fully-integrated foundries on a 30-acre plant site, we're capable of producing castings from 50 lbs. to over 10,000 lbs. Our BMM foundry produces castings from lower volume requirements all the way to production quantities from mounted patterns in weights from 50 lbs to 600 lbs. Our intermediate no-bake semi-production line produces castings from 50-1000 lbs. We also produce castings up to 10,000 lbs with mounted or loose pattern equipment. In all, we operate eight induction furnaces with a total daily melt capacity of nearly 350 net tons of all grades of gray and ductile iron.
