No Bake Aluminum Window Grate Cast Molding

Print Friendly, PDF & Email
A customer in the architecture industry approached Meloon Foundries Inc. to manufacture aluminum window grates using the no-bake molding process. The corrosion resistant, 356F aluminum window grates, which measured 68″ long, 48″ wide and 1″ thick, were created on a continuous no-bake mixer production line.


After molding, the grates were machined, shot blasted and then painted. Standard tolerances of +/- .030” were held. As requested by the client, we produced 1,800 of the 82 lbs grates over a six-month period.
