Locomotive Castings / Mass Transit Castings
Locomotive castings and mass transit castings are some of the hardest-working industrial products on the market, and because of that, you need to know you are working with a foundry that knows what they are doing when pouring your castings. We’ve sold steel castings and iron castings to some of the largest private and public entities in this market, and we have no problem documenting every step in our process so that you know you’re getting exactly what you pay for.
We have produced castings to AAR material specs, for mass transit, and for locomotive engine builders. While we are not AAR certified, we have sub-contracted to AAR certified facilities and are familiar with both the material and testing requirements for AAR parts. We’ve produced locomotive castings for brake brackets, mounting lugs, cylinder heads and various engine components, bolsters, couplers, and a variety of other parts. Quaker City Castings has years of experience in the locomotive and mass transit markets.
Quaker City Castings also has in-house machining capacity to finish machine many of the locomotive and mass transit castings we produce. In addition to machining, we can also coast your parts to deliver a finished product ready for testing and installation.
In addition to locomotive components, we also make castings for the following industries: Valve and Pump, Power Generation, Engineering and Construction, Aerospace, Tire Molds, Drilling and Mining, Gears and Defense/Military.
We make iron castings and steel castings of the following types: stainless steel castings, carbon steel castings, alloy steel castings, ductile iron castings and gray iron castings. We make custom stainless steel castings and large steel castings up to 5,000 lbs and large iron castings up to 12,000 lbs.
