Avalon Facility in Wisconsin Expands Investment Casting Capabilities

We’re excited to announce that we’ve added to the capabilities at our Markesan, WI, investment casting plant.

The addition of four presses gives us more capacity for conventional trees and filled wax casting. Compared to unfilled wax, filled wax requires fewer tooling modifications, generates less sink and can be somewhat more stable.

The new capabilities at Markesan provide several benefits. We’ll be able to run more castings overall and will also be able to shorten lead times because we’ll be able to run different parts on multiple different presses. They also allow us to run larger dies to create larger parts.

In addition to the new capabilities, our Markesan facility also runs vacuum assist and gravity power investment casting and uses the invest process.

Thanks to its AS9100 certification, the Markesan plant is well-suited to serve the aerospace industry, but the added capacity benefits our work for all end markets, including:

We process a broad array of materials at the Markesan facility, including:

  • Stainless steel
  • Low-medium alloy steels
  • Tool steels

The new capabilities in Markesan are an important complement to the capacity at our Cleveland, Ohio, investment casting plant, positioning us to meet customer requirements well into the future. Together, the plants offer redundant engineering and manufacturing capabilities, lowering our customers’ cost of ownership and delivering investment castings that surpass our customers’ expectations.

We’ve also expanded the capabilities of the dip area at our Markesan facility. We’ve added a robot, tanks and sanders to further boost productivity at the plant.

All of these expansions taken together mean we’re better poised to achieve our customers’ goals through shorter lead times, larger parts and faster production.
