Keep reading to learn more about the applications of our castings across these markets.
In the agricultural industry, having equipment you can trust to work when you need it is especially important. From implement seeder boots to flywheels, Prospect Foundy’s iron castings are used throughout the agricultural space. Our engine brackets have powerful tensile strength and elongation to serve tractors, trucks, and other agricultural vehicles. Our baler needles make quick work twine and our weights help farmers safely distribute weight on their tractors. The food on our tables doesn’t happen by magic; it takes a series of dedicated professionals from casters to machinists to farmers and beyond working together to keep us fed.
Construction & Mining
Construction and mining are essential to the American economy. Prospect Foundry produces a number of products used in construction and mining, including clutch, compressor and transmission housings, manifolds, planet carriers and more. We produce turbochargers that increase power and impact fuel economy and emissions and specialized brackets for construction and mining vehicles. Keeping our construction workers and miners equipped with the parts their gear needs to run is a point of pride for Prospect Foundry.
Fluid power is often safer and more efficient than other forms of power transmission. The valve bodies produced by Prospect Foundry aid in the control of speed, direction, power and torque of fluid power systems like hydraulics and pneumatics. We also produce pump housings and adaptor covers to safely contain systems.
We provide a number of products to the industrial market that keep machines, vehicles, and systems running smoothly. Lift eyes, which only have certified capacities when forged, are used widely across a number of industrial applications. We proudly forge lift eyes used on a variety of industrial equipment, including but not limited to: dies, motors, cabinets, molds, compressors, and heat exchangers.
The transportation market relies heavily on strong, forged iron castings. At Prospect Foundry, we produce a wide range of castings to facilitate strength, power, and efficiency in logistical transport. We produce long-lasting brake calipers, differential carriers, saddles, pulleys and more to support the work of our partners in transportation.
