Victaulic Co of America Expands Casting Capacity

Casting production capacity has been increased substantially by Victaulic Company of America, a manufacturer of grooved mechanical pipe couplings, related components and varied custom castings.

In addition to its main foundry in Easton, PA, a 52,000-sq-ft facility in nearby Alburtis, PA (formerly Kline Foundries) is now in full production.

Victaulic's fully integrated capabilities in one- to 30-lb custom ductile iron casting include engineering and design, pattern and coremaking, and melting and molding using high-production Disamatic and medium-production Hunter matchplate processes.

Other capabilities include heat treating and annealing, machining, finishing, plating, galvanizing and rubber-to-metal bonding.
