Before we use green sand for mold development, we test it in our sand lab for strength characteristics and compactability from the start.

Metals Lab

We conduct a variety of tests in our Metals lab during production and the testing results are then reported to our Gray Iron Casting customers.  

Metals lab testing services we provide include:

  • Evaluating the molecular structure of a casting section using a Unitron MEC 8484 stereomicroscope.
  • Evaluating the thickness of casting walls by measuring and verifying the thickness using a Kraut-Kramer DML-4 ultrasonic thickness gauge.
  • Verifying the tensile strength of the casting using a Detroit tensile strength test machine to perform mechanical performance tests.
  • Verify the chemical composition of the casting using spectrometer.

Shop Floor

Atlas Foundry personnel conduct a number of tests on the shop floor during production and the testing results are then reported to our Gray Iron casting customers.

Shop floor testing services include:

  • Hardness testing using a Tinius Olsen Brinell variable load hardness test machine,
  • Pyrometric testing using an Ircon optical pyrometer located at the Disamatic molding machine to measure and verify the temperature of the molten Gray Iron being cast, and
  • Mold hardness testing using a Dietert Mold hardness tester to ensure the molds have hardened enough to accept the molten Gray Iron and not deform.
