Ductile cast iron is a versatile material that can be employed in numerous product applications, providing an affordable mechanical turnkey solution for many industries. Because products can be cast in one piece and use less material, ductile iron castings are an affordable alternative to steel forgings, stampings, and fabrications. With a host of desirable mechanical properties — particularly yield strength, tensile strength, and elongation — it profiles beautifully in any situation a rugged and dependable alloy is required.
Ductile iron's ability to resist pulling and vibration forces make it a natural choice for couplers connecting train cars on locomotives.
Ductile iron castings are widely used in the high-heat/high-friction environments of automotive/heavy truck transmission systems.
Urick utilizes the finest grain sand in the industry for superior accuracy, ensuring fastener threads with the tightest, most secure fit.
With industry-best nodularity, Urick's ductile iron castings were made to handle the ups and downs and twists and turns of challenging terrain.
