state of the art

Non-Ferrous Foundry


We are a green sand foundry with manual jolt squeeze molding, semiautomatic cope drag molding line and a highly automatic Disa molding system.

Our molds are made internally using plastic resin systems and CNC Machined Metal. CIALC produces castings, machined cast parts and assembled products in a box ready for sale to suit the customer’s needs. Our specialty is red brass from less than a pound to 10 pounds. However, we can cast other copper based alloys, aluminum based alloys and zinc based alloys as needed.
