MeltingMidwest Manufacturing and Logistics produces gray and ductile iron castings to strict customer DIN or ASTM specifications. Great effort is taken to control incoming raw materials to support our metallurgy excellence.

Two 45-ton vertical induction furnaces meet the molten metal requirements, having a combine melt rate of seven tons per hour.

Rigid quality requirements are maintained by Midwest's modern metallurigical laboratory. The lab is equipped with metallographic and sand testing capabilities. In addition, an ARL 3460 vacuum spectrometer provides accurate chemical composition information on 14 different elements of both iron and steel.

Iron specifications:
  • Gray iron; Class 35 to Class 60.
  • Ductile iron; Class 60-40-18(DIN) to 120-90-02 (ASTM) annealed.
  • Specialty gray or ductile iron upon request.
Foundry melt capabilities:
  • Two 1800KW line frequency 35-ton Ajax holding furnaces.
  • 120 tons per day.
  • 80,000 pound pour weight gray iron.
  • 70,000 pound pour weight ductile Iron.
  • 50,000 pound finished casting weight.
Melt laboratory:
  • ARL optical emission spectrometer.
  • Consistently monitor 14 elements through the melting process.
  • Birnell hardness testing equipment
  • Nodularity count monitoring for ductile iron.
  • X100 magnification -- optical microscope.
  • Temperature immersion process monitoring.
  • Iron sample processing: cast-on, separately cast all sizes as specified.
  • Full independent testing for every heat fully recorded.
  • Casting serial numbers are used to maintain all material specifications.
