Aluminum Castings Company, A Galesburg Illinois Aluminum Sand Foundry
The Aluminum Castings Company aluminum sand foundry is located in Galesburg, Illinois and has been producing high quality aluminum sand castings since 1964. We specialize in both high quality green sand and air set or no bake sand molds. Both types of our sand molds can also have complex internal sand coring using our shell core sands, cold box sand cores, air set, or no bake sand cores, and oil sand cores to supply you a wide variety of aluminum sand casting options.
We cast several aluminum alloys in our aluminum casting process. These certified aluminum alloys include: Almag 35(535), Tenzaloy 713, 319, 355, 356, A356, 771, and 850 series. Aluminum Castings Company LLC can produce aluminum sand castings of all sizes, with our newest Kloster air set molding equipment we are able to produce air set, or no bake sand molds up to 12 feet long and 4 tons in weight!
In 2011 Aluminum Castings Corp of Galesburg Illinois became a subsidiary of Alcast Company, a permanent mold aluminum foundry in Peoria Illinois. This will allow our aluminum sand foundry to continue to grow with our customers and also offer a wider variety of aluminum castings options, along with heat treat and machining options as well.
In 2015 our aluminum foundry's name was changed to Aluminum Castings Company LLC, but no other changes were made to the company.
