What are full-service investment casting companies?
Complete Assembly at Barron Industries
Full-service or turnkey investment casting companies not only produce both ferrous and non-ferrous precision castings, but also provide secondary services including CNC machining, Non-destructive Testing, and even complete assembly. At Barron Industries, precision cast parts are poured, machined, assembled, plated, painted, tested, part-marked, barcode-labeled and securely packaged for shipping. All processes are handled in-house providing complete one-stop shopping. Using our 3-D printing technologies for rapid prototyping, Barron can deliver a high-quality precision investment casting.
“I think one of the biggest differentiators for Barron to its customers is that we not only provide castings and machined castings but also complete assemblies,” said Bruce Barron, President, and CEO. “Complete assemblies start with perhaps welded fabrications, where Barron performs welding in conformance with the ASME Section IX of the Boiler Code, AWS D1.1, as well as all of the requirements for Ballistic Steel Welding.”
To create a completely painted, stenciled and part-marked assembly, Barron adds additional parts including tubes, electronic sensors, thermostats, O-rings, bushings, bearings, and fasteners. “That’s really what our customers are looking for,” said Barron. “You’ve got one company, one stop for a complete assembly with all requirements and certifications being done under one roof.”
