When farm equipment parts fail, production suffers. And when production suffers, there can be serious consequences, as delicate food supply chains locally, regionally, nationally, or even globally are affected. Traditional farmers continuously modified and improved their own machinery; today's larger-scale agricultural operations demand a reliable partner who can innovate to scale.
Urick produces high-quality ductile iron farm equipment parts for the agricultural equipment industry. Ductile iron castings are perfectly matched to withstand the relentless wear-and-tear of modern agricultural operations, maximizing the useful lifespan of agricultural equipment. That's peace of mind American farms can grow with as they continue to feed the world.
Ductile iron bends before it breaks, withstanding the enormous pressures exerted by heavy machinery used in everyday farming operations like plowing, planting, and harvesting.
Ductile iron castings — especially austempered ductile iron castings — offer similar or equivalent strength and hardness to steel, with greatly reduced final machining costs.
Urick Ductile Solutions utilizes highly specialized casting processes to create highly specialized farm equipment parts for highly specialized machines.
What farm equipment does Urick make ductile iron parts for?
Urick produces ductile iron farm equipment parts for a wide variety of agricultural machinery and vehicles including:
What are some examples of farm equipment parts Urick has manufactured?
Examples of farm equipment parts Urick has manufactured include hubs, bearings, parallel arms, housings, and more.
Is ductile iron durable enough for my demanding farming operation?
Yes, ductile iron is more than durable enough for the most demanding farming operations due to both its elongation and hardness properties (especially after austempering).
Are ductile iron castings an inexpensive replacement for steel weldments and fabrications?
Ductile iron castings for farm equipment are typically less expensive to produce than the equivalent part made from steel. This is because ductile iron requires less energy to heat to a molten state, pours more readily, and fills complex shapes with less shrinkage (therefore requiring less material). These cost savings add up quickly in large-scale production!
