Send pictures of your tooling!
OK Foundry can run many kinds of existing or older tooling. If you already have foundry patterns and core boxes, we can quote castings with minimal rigging charges if we know the condition and configuration of the tooling. Old tooling is not necessarily a problem and old tooling that worked, is a great start for making any casting. But, we need to see it to offer you the cheapest solution for rigging. We understand that often this is not possible due to the current location of the tooling. A photograph of the casting is a good alternative.
Annual volume estimates and order quantities are critical!
Foundry tooling design and process design are very volume dependent and economies of scale make a huge difference in casting pricing. If you have sufficient volume we might suggest you can get a much better deal in a higher volume automated foundry, or if you have very low volumes we need to offer a different kind of solution. Exact numbers are not important, but knowing whether you expect 1, 5, 10, 100, 1,000 or 10,000 castings is a minimal starting point.
Obsolete and spare part castings
OK Foundry has the right scale to make short run castings efficiently, but even our small scale needs volume to be profitable. If you have a few moderate volume castings to combine with your spare part or obsolete castings, we can design a program to offset the setup costs of several low volume parts against a few moderate volume castings.
For small businesses who have critical castings needs, but very low volumes, we can often work something out.
Heavier castings, 250 lbs. or more, can be made cost effectively in much lower quantities, 5 or less per order.
In all cases, the administration of orders of low volume castings must be efficient and compatible with automated procedures for order handling and shipping. To handle small volume orders, OK Foundry uses computer automation for all order handling, shipping paperwork and invoicing.
