Case Study: Manufacturer In Need of Ductile Iron Components

Problem: A manufacturer of industrial motion control components approached Carson Castings in need of an existing ductile iron component. The reason for this was to try to find a more cost-effective raw casting supplier of the component.

Solution: Carson Castings participates in the quoting of many “cost savings” initiatives each year. Instead of only finding the lowest cost raw casting source available, Carson Castings also looked at the overall design of the ductilecasting.

Discussing the end use of the component with the customer’s engineering staff, it was discovered that key features could be produced “as-cast” instead of being machined.

The partner foundry not only said it could be done, but produced a small pilot run in-house to prove capability as well. The resulting component with less machining yielded the customer a 23% savings.
