Modeling and Testing

TB Wood’s ISO 9001 registered foundry and machining operations can produce parts that are 5 to 10,000 pounds per cast part. But that’s not all.

Testing and control of metal and molding sand is essential to the quality and performance of commercial castings. Here at TB Wood’s, our quality control procedures (including CMM, gage calibration, and solidification modeling), and our proven delivery system enable us to satisfy most casting requirements quickly and efficiently, on-time and on-budget.

In other words, you can count on our engineers and technicians to utilize solidification modeling and sand and metallurgical testing procedures to ensure your castings meet stringent quality standards.
