Engineering And Construction Castings
Quaker City Castings is extremely well situated to meet the casting requirements of the engineering sector. Our broad array of materials in iron castings, steel castings, and nickel-alloy castings lends itself to meeting the wide-ranging needs of both engineers and architects in designing and implementing their projects. We produce engineering and construction castings in many ferrous alloys, including gray iron, ductile iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, and high-alloy steel.
Quaker City Castings makes production castings for almost every conceivable general industrial purpose and some special industrial segments like chemical process, petrochemical, and primary metals. Whether you need a single casting for a service project or to repair an issue in the field, or thousands of castings for an ongoing production need, Quaker City Castings has the flexibility and the dedication to meet your needs.
Ductile iron castings in particular have been used widely in building construction and design due to a combination of the materials’ mechanical properties coupled with the ease by which complex shapes can be produced at a relatively cheap cost compared to other production methods and materials. The relatively low cost of ductile cast iron along with the ability to produce highly complex shapes has led to its use in decorative and architectural castings such as street furniture, lamp posts, seating, fountains, floor grates and railings.
Architectural castings are becoming more and more common as architects learn to integrate cast components into their building designs. Steel, Iron, and Nickel-base castings from Quaker City Castings have been used in numerous applications ranging from structural ductile iron castings to accurate reproductions of historical castings on historically important buildings. Using traditional pattern and mold making techniques or advanced digital reproduction, new designs and historic cast iron or steel can be reproduced or restored accurately.
