Custom Casting & Molding of a DuraDex® Iron Component for the Agriculture Industry
( Click image to enlarge )
Fairfield Castings, LLC was chosen to manufacture the component shown here for a customer in the agriculture industry. After reviewing the application requirements, we recommended our patented DuraDex® Iron as the material of construction. We were able to engineer alloy additions to provide the minimum 302 hardness and the elevated level of abrasion-resistance this hard-wearing application required. Enhancing the alloy properties made it comparable in performance to quench and tempered or austempered ductile iron. Our ability to provide the part in an as-cast condition enabled us to lower the overall cost and shorten production lead time.
