Engineering & Casting Design Services

Seneca Foundry uses a combination of the latest software and years of hands-on foundry experience to help our customers. We use SolidWorks 2019 3D modeling software, SolidCast solidification software, and FlowCast fluid analysis software prior to production.

Working Together, Partnership Approach

Low volume runs, custom cast iron, reliable delivery, our partnership approach, and being flexible to the customers' needs are what sets Seneca Foundry apart. We strive to work with customers early on in their casting design process so that we can deliver a quality casting at a competitive price.

We understand the need for and work with customers to help reduce their costs of receiving, inspection, and handling. We do this by meeting specifications on packaging, boxes/containers, lot quantities, and just-in-time deliveries. We can handle your complete casting job. 

Converting Weldments

One way our experienced engineering staff can help customers is to convert costly weldments into quality castings. Castings will provide more consistent quality, a more attractive appearance, and significant cost reductions for the customer. This is done by reducing labor and material requirements.

Quality Castings

We understand your need for consistent, high-quality castings. We use a Total Quality Management system that relies on skilled personnel trained in the latest QC procedures, modern testing equipment, and comprehensive process control. This ensures standards, processes, and procedures are in place and working to provide high-quality castings to our customers from start to finish.
