RATHBURN CUSTOMER SOLUTION #26
We saw our customer’s need even before they did.
For a long time, we machined sand cast aluminum pistons for an off-road truck manufacturer. It was profitable business for us that highlighted our skill and quality. Unfortunately they had always struggled with quality issues related to porosity of the cast parts, which led to a very high foundry scrap rate. Over time, their volume decreased while the cost of castings increased.
