Metal Castings

The field of metalworking employs various processes for achieving a certain shaped part. Casting specifically involves pouring liquid metal into a mold (cavity) and then allowing the metal to cool and solidify.

Glocon manufactures castings in aluminum, zinc, bronze, brass, steel, stainless steel, and other alloys. We can manufacture a variety of components from fully machined sand castings (with cores) to very complex shapes in high pressure die castings. In addition to casting, we have extensive capabilities in other metalworking areas, including full secondary finishing.
