Precision CNC Machining of Custom Casting Services

Glidewell Specialties Foundry Co. is a quality-driven firm with a long history of manufacturing industrial components to precise specifications for clients in a wide variety of industries. We are proud to provide advanced precision CNC machining for our custom casting services. At Glidewell, our list of machining capabilities is very long: drilling, boring, threading, tapping, pocketing, profiling, and reaming are just a few of the processes we provide. Our state-of-the-art facilities have CNC control capabilities, vertical and horizontal milling, welding machines, and burning machines, among others. With 3 and 4 axis machinery available at our 150,000 square foot enclosed facility, we custom machine parts to a wide variety of sizes. Our equipment can turn parts to 141" swing, with 40' between centers; we can horizontal bore mill components with a 7" spindle and 16' maximum vertical travel and 30' maximum horizontal travel. We provide drilling with up to an 8' radial arm and CNC machining to a maximum diameter of 71". Working with castings made from ductile and grey iron, we produce volumes that range from single prototypes to high volume, long runs. Our clients are assured that they are receiving top quality machining by our status as an ISO 9001:2008 certified company, a status we have held since 2010.

Please see the following table to learn more about our precision CNC machining capabilities, or feel free to contact us directly for further information.
