Watry’s Permanent Mold Aluminum Casting Capabilities

Watry Industries specializes in permanent mold aluminum castings.

The permanent mold process employs gravity pouring of metal (which reduces the likelihood of porosity) using steel or cast iron molds. The molds, created economically, are durable enough to produce many castings, which translates into the affordable parts costs you require.

Watry’s capabilities extend far beyond your typical permanent mold foundry. As your single source for permanent mold castings, we can reduce your transportation costs and eliminate the headaches that arise in dealing with subcontractors.

More detailed information regarding our operational offerings can be accessed through the links above. We are committed to ongoing expansion of our services to meet your needs.

Why Watry Permanent Mold?

Watry has one of the most modern permanent mold foundries in the country. Whenever possible we utilize robotics in the pouring and casting extraction process as well as material handling to maximize uptime and through-put. Watry’s universal mold mounting system minimizes set-up time while maximizing versatility between various casting work centers. Castings are manufactured right the first time and delivered on-time.

Our permanent mold process provides cost effective tooling that delivers high integrity castings with excellent repeat-ability and dimensional accuracy. Permanent Mold maintains a higher-quality surface finish providing excellent machining characteristics.

Watry’s castings include:

  • Low unit costs
  • Long tool life
  • Excellent repeat-ability
  • Less porosity
  • Superior mechanical characteristics

Our permanent mold process fits in between high pressure die cast and sand casting methods for cost effective tooling, while providing a higher integrity casting with excellent repeat-ability.

The gravity permanent mold casting process provides greater detail than sand casting. Machined dimensions can be precisely placed and sized for superior overall dimensional accuracy.

What Does Single Source Responsibility Mean To You?

  • Lower Production Costs
  • Lower Transportation Costs
  • Shorter Lead Times
  • Lower Inventory
  • And Most of All. . .
    Fewer Headaches!

Single source responsibility is the key to headache-free casting purchasing!
