Watry 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.

Our Casting Methods

In addition to using permanent mold processes, Watry produces aluminum castings using semi-permanent mold methods as well. This versatility can best serve each application and various casting designs. Want to learn more? Check out our aluminum casting process comparison chart.
