Foundry Services

Foundry Services

Foundry services refer to the testing and manufacturing of products and services.

Foundry uses a casting process to produce metal shapes that are used in products, manufacturing, and machinery. The casting process starts with hot metal poured into a mold, the metal is then cooled to solidify. The resulting metal shape is then trimmed and polished, ready to be used. Castings are not the only operation that foundries provide. Foundries also provide things like tool building, assembly, and prototyping. GK’s foundry systems are committed to optimizing your metal casting processes. General Kinematics is a premier manufacturer producing innovative equipment ideas and problem-solving application techniques for more than six decades.
