When asked to take on a casting production project by a company that globally supplies offroad equipment for the mining, construction, and agriculture industries, Plymouth Foundry, Inc. knew they had what it takes to handle it. Being ISO 9001:2015 certified and compliant with PPAP (Product Part Approval Process) Standard, they knew they could handle the unique requirements the company was requesting. The worldwide offroad equipment supplier was requiring that only Hi Si Mo Ductile Iron be used because of its superior heat resistance for the casting of their manifolds. This is a specific grade of Ductile Iron and in this case it was being used for a small order quantity using a Green-Sand molding.
Plymouth Foundry’s ISO 9001:2015 certification and compliance with the PPAP Standard, allowed them to retain a high level of quality control during the production of the customer’s small amount of manifolds. As always, Plymouth’s management team, design team and production staff were instrumental in taking on this challenge from the initial request from this customer to their finished product quality approval. The manifold production project was completed on time and within budget.
