Ductile Iron Castings for the Pump & Bearing Housing Industries

As a provider of large scale ductile iron castings, at Glidewell our reputation is built on providing high quality and consistency. The bearing housings, caps, and pump components shown here require this type of precision, which is why customers from various industries turn to us for their manufacture.

These components are typically cast in ductile iron; however, they can also be manufactured in gray iron. Molds are created to the customer’s specifications and 2D CAD drawings on our floor molding system, and on our semi-automated molding line. After casting, components are machined in-house to tolerances of ±.001”.

Each part is fully inspected, utilizing a wide range of testing and inspection techniques. Our quality program includes advanced testing procedures which allow us to maintain compliance with all applicable industry standards, as well as our own stringent quality standards.
