Agricultural Casting Services
Ermak Foundry & Machining is a leading nonferrous agricultural foundry specializing in producing sand castings using aluminum alloys. As a result, we’re ready to take on any agricultural project, whether it’s a one-part job or thousands of parts.
Modern farm equipment has played an enormous role in the productivity of today’s farm. There are many challenges common to agricultural equipment: harsh conditions, oversized loads, and changing technology that necessitates precision parts.
Aluminum, one-third of the weight of steel or iron, is naturally non-corrosive, strong, durable, and available in alloys ideal for the agricultural industry. Vehicle frames, drums, cylinders, gear casings, and housings are examples of hard-working aluminum cast parts used in the ag sector.
We follow proprietary procedures and exercise lean production methods— which means we’re able to provide repeatable, consistent, and cost-effective products to our ag clients.
Custom Casting Services
Assembly Analysis and Casting Integration
We work with our agricultural clients to identify new methods to save money through assembly analysis and casting integration. For example, we have saved our customers money on manufacturing costs by recognizing that different castings could be produced as a single component.
Reverse Engineering Agricultural Equipment Parts
3D scanning enables us to give design analysis and duplicate an existing item. We may also analyze chemical and metallographic properties to determine materials and post-production processes used. Following a thorough examination, we engage with our clients to devise a feasible plan of action for moving forward with manufacturing.
Agricultural Part Prototypes
Prototypes assist in evaluating the efficiency of the manufacturing process and give an accurate preview of exactly how a part looks, feels, handles, and performs. The prototypes we produce are typically fully functional, but we also design non-working versions to present to potential investors and test market panels.
