Where to buy cheap iron castings
As for a buyer for
iron castings, the prices
are always the most important consideration. In my works in
iron foundry for many years,
I was also wondering if our cast
iron prices were the cheapest in the world. Unfortunately,
we were not. There are many iron
foundries worldwide who could produce the iron castings by
the lower costs than ours.
The prices of iron castings in China
There are thousands of iron foundries in China, and the numbers of
workers are different from dozens to hundreds. Moreover, they have
their own specialties, such as
automobile parts, machinery parts,
stove burners, manholes or
others. Therefore, if you are going to buy many pipe fittings, and
you find an iron foundry who mainly produced pipe fittings, then I
think you will get a very good price from them.
In addition, there are some iron foundries who could use large
volume of iron scraps to produce iron castings. Although their
material quality is not good, but their prices are really very low.
If your cast iron parts do not have material requirements, they
should be a good choice. It is a pity that
Dandong Foundry could not reduce the production costs by
this way. Most of our products have certain material requirements.
Another situation is the prices from small iron foundries. Some
small iron foundries have more compact administration team, which
means they have lower management costs. So, their prices will be
lower than medium and large iron foundries. Of course, their
shortcomings are quality risk and delivery time. Small iron
foundries do not have the capability to take large orders.
The prices of iron castings in India
As I know, there are many iron foundries in India too. I guess it is
because their material costs and manpower costs are lower than those
in China, therefore, I heard that their cast iron prices were not
high. However, from our clients, we heard that their quality and
delivery were not good. It is not proper if I say too many bad words
here since we are the competitors. I believe that there are many
good suppliers and bed suppliers anywhere.
The prices of iron castings in Vietnam
There are some iron foundries in Vietnam, I did not know the exact
amount, but as I heard, their prices of iron castings are low.
However, some buyers in Vietnam are still buying iron castings from
China. Some clients said the iron foundries in Vietnam can not
produce ductile iron castings.
Actually, I still think it is impossible since the most of iron
foundries in China could produce ductile iron castings very well,
but I think maybe their quality was not good enough for some buyers.
All in all, these information is just my personal opinion, I think
you should not look for the cheapest iron castings, but need to find
the suitable iron foundries according to your technical and other
requirements. The reasonable prices could guarantee you to gain the
