Purchasing metal stock or metal components in bulk is largely preferable to buying smaller quantities of specialty items. If you go through our competitors, machinery designed for long production runs will be used to produce a few items, wasting money on operation costs and resulting in higher prices.
American Iron utilizes the cost-efficient properties of our continuous cast iron stock to produce specialty castings and custom metal components at the very lowest price. Bring in old parts and their specifications, and we'll cast a replacement part living up to modern standards. Even if you don't have the precise specifications, our casting professionals match your part and engineer a high-quality replacement.
Cast iron stock options
- Cast iron bars, rounds & rods
- Cast iron tubes
- Cast iron square & rectangular bars
- Cast iron plates
- Cast iron specialty shapes
Machinists prefer continuous casting to sand casting
Continuous casting is a significant improvement over traditional sand casting. Place Versa-Bar and a sand cast bar next to each other, and you'll see a big difference between the cast finish. Continuous casting produces a superior surface finish and nearly eliminates centerline shrinking and internal porosity. Sand casting relies on synthetic silica-based materials to form a mold. The finished product has a rougher surface finish than the continuously cast Versa-Bar.
Due to its cost-efficient properties, continuous cast iron from American Iron is your best option for producing specialty metal components. Our metal fabricators use the latest casting technology to make your custom continuous cast iron products as affordable and high-quality as possible.
