Comprehensive services to support your business

Our foundry provides a range of services, including casting, heat treating, and finishing. We work with customers to deliver high-quality, custom solutions that meet their specific requirements.

Permanent Mold

Permanent mold provides a means to produce castings with intricate detail and exceptional quality. The permanent mold process involves pouring molten aluminum into an iron or steel die. This method of casting produces a finer grain structure with consistent dimension and excellent finish.

 

We offer tilt-pour permanent molding lines to suit your mid-volume casting production needs. Common die or mold sizes are 18×24 and 30×30. We are capable of making or customizing dies to fit your needs and the application. Our static pour lines offer a solution for higher volume runs of smaller sized castings.

Heat Treat

Obtain the maximum hardness, strength and wear resistance of your casting with on-site heat treatment. Our drop bottom and aging furnaces provide heat treatment to T4, T6, T71 or other thermal treatment conditions. Air or water quenching may be performed as required for the condition. Calibrated Honeywell controllers monitor & record temperature uniformity.

Aluminum Alloys

St. Croix Castings is capable of pouring a complete line of ASTM certified alloys. We manufacture a high volume of our work in A356 Prime, 356 and 319 alloys. Aluminum certification may be provided upon request.

Sand Casting

The sand molding process provides a versatile and economic option for higher volume work and low volume, customized runs. Green sand molding is the process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold cavity formed in sand that is bonded by clay and water. We produce castings ranging in size from ounces up to 50 lbs.

 

According to your production requirements and casting size, we manufacture aluminum castings on our 14×19 or 20×24 automatic machines. Our reputation for process control and stability ensure the quality of your casting with an excellent sand cast finish.
