The molding and core making work centers at Midwest use 100 percent no-bake chemically bonded sand. The lake sand used in each of these mixers is a coarse four-screen distribution. Each of Midwest's five sand mixers is strictly maintained and calibrated to strict quality standards.
Large Molding Floor
Large MoldMost of the molds produced in the large molding area are manufactured with loose patterns while only one-third are core assemblies. Thanks to the Furan process, cores that are too large to be handled in the Core Room can be produced on the molding line.

A wide variety of castings can be produced on Midwest's Large Molding Floor. For quality assurance each mold is identified by its own sequence number. This sequence number is visible on each casting and any test sample required for traceability.

Main floor capabilities include:
  • Weight range from 4,000 to 50,000 pounds.
  • Mold size from 72" x 72" x 12"/12" to 154" x 144" x 96"48".
  • Crane Capacity from 7.5 tons to 50 tons with three cranes operating overhead.
  • Floor capacity is 29,000 square feet.
  • Crane rail height is 37 feet.
Molding Line
Flaskless MoldThe flaskless molding line at Midwest can utilize either fixed or loose pattern equipment. This versatile line incorporates the use of fully machined oron boards. These boards are used to assure dimensional stability of our castings during the molding and casting process, and to provide a safe, secure work environment.

Molding line capabilities include:
  • Weight range from 250 pounds to 4,000 pounds.
  • Mold size from 48" x 48" x 12"/10" to 128" x 68" x 27"/27".
  • Pattern set up from a typical one up to 12 up.
  • Pattern types; wood, urethance, styrofoam, and lost foam.
