Castings with Machining

Where to buy the castings with machining in China? There are many iron foundries in China, who can machine the castings in-house.

In the past, I heard many clients said they were surprised by the machining capability for the metal foundries and machining workshops in China. They thought China foundries just had some simple and poor casting equipments, but there were no high-precision machining equipments, but they found there were many foundries in China equipped CNC centers, numerical control machines and CMM. They have the equipments to machine very small or very large metal castings with high machining precision. I guess it is because China foundries have improved their machining capability in the recent years.

However, where could you buy the metal castings with machining? I suggest you to consider the following ways:

1. From the iron foundries who have the machining capability in-house.

As I said, there are many metal foundries especially iron foundries in China, they have many machining equipments, so you could ask them to produce the rough castings, and do the finish machining, or rough machining if they could not meet your high requirements.

In this way, you will find many advantages. If they find the defective castings during their machining process, then they could replace them quickly and free of charge for the buyers. So, it will save you many time and costs. Moreover, it does not need your coordination between the foundries and machining workshops. According to my experience, the coordination works will kill you.

2. From the machining workshops who can buy the rough castings locally.

This is also a good way if your products need many machining works, or need high-precision machining. In this way, you just need to ask for the finish castings from the machining workshops, and ask the machining workshops to solve the any defective problems either from machining or from rough castings. So, the machining workshops will try their best to control the quality of quality and solve the defective castings with their subcontractors. It will also save your time and costs. The disadvantage of this way is the price. The price will be higher than the first way. Why? The machining workshops have to add some extra costs in their quotations, such as the administrative costs, the defective costs, the profit from rough castings, the margin in case of increased prices of rough castings. As I know, in Dandong Foundry in China, we will quote the rough castings with very low profit, sometimes, even lower than 3%, and tried to get more profit from machining to compensate our loss for rough castings. However, if you ask us to supply the rough castings to other machining workshops, then we will have to quote with a normal profit since we can not get the profit from machining.

3. From castings trading companies.

There are many trading companies in China and overseas, who could supply the metal castings to the final clients in USA, UK, and other countries. Usually, they could go to the foundries to inspect the dimensions and coordinate the defective issues between the clients, metal foundries and machining workshops. I think they should also be a good choice for you if you could not find a suitable metal foundry or machining workshop.

In order to buy the good castings with machining, you do need to consider many aspects.
