Signicast Corp begins fifth expansion in six years.
On the heels of a 9500-sq-ft expansion of its office, Signicast Corp, Milwaukee, is now embarking on a 15,000-sq-ft plant addition.
The $3 million addition will house a fully automated, rough-clean facility and a robotic dip room. Upon completion of this fifth expansion in six years, the total plant size will be nearly 100,000 sq ft.
The automated rough-cleaning portion will be a state-of-the-art facility that provides cleaner parts with an improved surface finish at lower labor costs. The robotic dipping will complement the conveyor-assisted hand dipping already in place.
Signicast pours more than 100 alloys in castings ranging from ounces to 200 lb. These alloys include stainless, plain carbon, tool steel, nickel, ductile and gray iron, cobalt and copper base.
Signicast has been producing precision investment castings for more than 30 years. Its castings markets include: power-driven hand tools; motorcycle and bicycle parts; agricultural vehicles and equipment; construction vehicles and machinery; dairy equipment; pumps; and valves.
