Finding the Right Casting Company

avalon pmi tradeshow boardSelecting the right casting company to partner with can be a difficult task.  There are a few factors to take into consideration in selecting the right casting company.

Start by finding a full-service turnkey casting company that provides one-stop shopping for all your casting-related needs, including:

Expertise and Experience

You want a casting company dedicated to being a long-term partner committed to building relationships, not just filling orders. A company that understands the importance of adding value to your product line and can assist with your new product development to not only produce a functional part but a part that processes more efficiently at less cost.  We can suggest changes that could reduce part weight, while adding features that eliminate machining and / or other secondary operations.

It’s also important to find a company that can provide a broad range of casting process capabilities, and experience working with a variety of alloys.  Vertical integration along with offshore services and redundant manufacturing capabilities enables Avalon to help launch new products in a timely manner at the right cost.

Redundant manufacturing across several facilities means your project won’t be delayed during peak demand cycles. A casting company with redundant manufacturing capabilities can level load to ensure that projects are completed on time.

Another critical consideration is the number and types of alloys that the company can cast. A broad range of materials ensures the correct material characteristics for your part can be utilized.

Make sure the company has the right certifications for your industry and or your part requirements.
