Aluminum Casting Fountry
Morris Bean’s aluminum castings are feats of modern engineering and artistry, brought to life within a vast facility nestled in Yellow Springs, Ohio. This expansive 185,000 square-feet complex sits on 60 acres, dedicated to crafting aluminum into remarkable forms. From intricate designs weighing just a pound to formidable creations of 4,000 pounds, these castings showcase the versatility of aluminum. The process involves various techniques like Antioch plaster molding and advanced spectrographic analysis to ensure the highest quality. With their mastery over thickness and innovative casting methods, this facility transforms molten aluminum into stunning pieces that span industries, from aviation to architecture, leaving an indelible mark on the world of manufacturing.
Our Antioch plaster process was developed years ago and has been honed for decades by our company. It is suited to produce airflow impellers. Antioch plaster molds can be poured at a low temperature, which allows rapid solidification and leads to high mechanical properties. Once the mold is through processing, it becomes an insulator as opposed to a conductor, so we can fill thin cross-sections and vanes. Parts produced with our Antioch plaster process have a surface finish whose quality far exceeds that of parts produced by more common foundry molding techniques. You can expect 100RMS on most parts produced with this process.
