Our modern, ISO-9001 certified, 245,000 square-foot foundry is dedicated to creating quality iron castings for your business. With various labs and processes Kohler Industrial Castings can tackle any job, whether you require one hundred or one million castings annually.

MELT

With five Inductotherm, 35 ton capacity coreless melting furnaces and three channel inductor holding furnaces, Kohler Industrial Castings has the capacity to offer greater process flexibility and highly consistent quality products to our customers.

We remove impurities and oxides before iron is to the holding furnaces, and use overhead monorail ladles to deliver molten iron from the melting furnaces ensuring a safe and timely delivery process.

CORE MAKING

Produced on cold box and pep-set equipment, our precision cores are maintained with rigorous testing, dimensional gauging, weighing and visual inspections.

We only accept A-1 cores for production which are then transported to the molding line and prepared for pouring.

MOLDING CENTER

Our molding center uses the Osborn in-line molding machine.

Capable of producing 300 molds per hour, the Osborn machine uses a conveyor-type pouring line, with multiple pouring ladles and core-setting stations with a flask size of 28" x 34" with a 9" cope over a 9" drag.

CASTING FINISHING

Our centralized cleaning and finishing facility ensures every casting is quickly and thoroughly processed, no matter the size.

Castings are finished on a 28-cubic-foot Wheelabrator tumblast machine or compartment Spin blast unit using grit or steel shot to mechanically clean them. Castings are robotically or manually ground to obtain the desired finish per customer specifications.
