Ross Aluminum Castings Increases Permanent Mold Capacity

See Modern Castings Magazine article released March 25, 2008

Ross Aluminum Castings LLC, Sidney, Ohio, has increased its aluminum permanent mold casting capacity by approximately 50%. The company added a 4,000 lb/hr jet melter, a 75 ft. long integrated molten aluminum launder line that provides metal to eight additional permanent mold casting production cells. A new robotic combination knockout and saw cell also was installed to improve handling of aluminum castings in excess of 100 lbs. Prior to the addition, Ross’ production stemmed more from its green sand, air set and no bake lines

Officials for Ross said the company would continue to provide aluminum castings to manufacturers of fuel pumps and hydraulic valves, as well as gearboxes to the aerospace industry and a range of castings to the specialty and high performance automotive, general manufacturing and diesel truck industries.
