WHAT SETS US APART


1. TECHNOLOGY AND EQUIPMENT


At LETH IRON we utilize the most up to date technology to provide you with cost effective casting solutions. Examples of these lean initiatives are state of the art equipment as outlined below:


TWO AUTOMATIC STORAGE & RETRIEVAL SYSTEMS (ASRS)


Essentially robotic forklifts move & store your product in our foundry - movement & storage is not waste in our facility, like it is in so many of our competitors!




SIX FOXALLâ„¢ ROBOTIC GRINDING SYSTEMS


We grind most of your castings robotically. In addition to the increased productivity and reduced costs of robotic grinding compared to normal foundry snag grinding, our customers reap the following additional benefits:

  • Every casting is ground exactly the same
  • We use diamond coated grinding wheels which provide significantly better cosmetics compared to normal snag grinding
  • We can control grinding dimensional tolerances very closely and have worked successfully with our clientele to reduce machining costs.

  • In addition to the above, we utilize other very modern technology and are continually adding further upgrades. We would encourage you to come tour our facility to see for yourself "what sets us apart from the competition"!



    2. CASTING DESIGN ASSISTANCE


    LETH IRON has dedicated & experienced staff to assist our customer's engineering departments with the design of their castings.
