Barron Industries can create both ferrous and non-ferrous precision castings ranging from 2 ounces to 150 pounds (68 kilograms).
Quality- & Efficiency-Focused
We are AS9100-Certified and NADCAP-accredited for our welding, digital radiography and dye penetrant testing. Prior to a part being created, we utilize Solidification Modeling software to gauge what a casting’s internal quality level will be. In doing this, we can drastically cut time and costs associated with traditional trial and error phases. In addition to helping you reduce weight, lead time and overall production parts, we will work with you to improve the overall quality and function of your finished part.
