Outdoor sports recreation assumes many forms, but few where performance isn't paramount. These are our hobbies, interests, and passions — often threaded with an element of excitement or danger that makes us feel more alive. Given this, it's imperative recreation equipment matches the demands of the activity — and our enthusiasm.
Whether your customers' adventures take them near or far, ductile iron is up to the challenge. Strong and durable yet flexible and adaptable, Urick's ductile iron castings consistently outperform the competition. And when your recreation equipment performs, your brand wins.
In sports recreation, physics matters. In-mold inoculation and sand casting produce near-net shapes — meaning your equipment performs exactly as you engineered it.
Urick uses some of the finest grain sand in the industry for its castings, resulting in remarkable lettering clarity and quality — and allowing your branding to stand out in the spotlight.
The "u" in Urick is for "unique" — we take pride in our capability to form unique products for your unique applications through our unique processes. Your niche is truly our command.
What kind of sports equipment does Urick cast parts for?
Urick casts horseshoes, parts for 4-wheelers (ATVs), lift kits for trucks, off-roading equipment, and more. Tell us what you need — we'd love to help bring ductile iron into your sport's arena as well.
What are the benefits of fine sand casting for sports recreation equipment?
The benefits of fine grain sand casting are numerous — better surface finish, better feel, better fit, and better branding details. Although close does count in horseshoes, at Urick we're shooting for dead ringers.
Is ductile iron tough enough for extreme sports?
Ductile iron was practically meant for extreme sports. Why? It is as strong as steel, but 10% lighter. When you pair that strength with the flexibility properties of ductile iron's spheroidal graphite nodules, you have the ideal material to go where other materials do not dare go. For instance, off-roaders trust ductile iron parts in their suspension systems to get across the roughest terrain, and ductile iron winches to get themselves out of it.
Can Urick scale production for my recreation equipment part?
Urick is well-suited to produce as many or as few of your specified recreation equipment parts as you need. We maintain lifetime patterns for our customers, giving us the ability to adapt to fluid production demands and schedules.
