The Mining Industry relies heavily on large and sophisticated equipment for a wide range of applications such as drilling, blasting, digging, hauling, crushing and refining. All of this equipment requires complex and wear resistant components made from materials that can withstand harsh and abusive work environments. ICAST is capable of producing complicated components at near net shapes that require little to no post processing. We utilize the latest technologies and systems all of which add up to faster lead times and lower prices. 

Capabilities : 

  • Superior process engineering including gate and runner design.
  • We can facilitate post processing operations as required such as heat treat, surface treatments, NDT and post machining.
  • Conduct quality control and inspection to ensure parts meet dimensional and metallurgical requirement.


Materials for Mining Components

We have the ability to pour all standard and most specialty alloys that are tough and wear resistant including the following:

  • Nickel Based Alloys (Inconel 625 & 718)
  • Mild Steels & Low Alloy Steels (1020, 8620, 4130)
  • Stainless Steel – 400 Series (410, 416)
  • Stainless Steel – 300 Series (303, 304, 310, 316, 347)
  • Stainless Steel – Precipitation Hardening (17-4, 15-5)
  • Cobalt Based Alloys (Co21, Co25, Co31)


With the capability to produce parts with high accuracy and tight dimensional tolerances, the investment casting process is chosen for the following in the mining industry:

  • Sleeves
  • Chippers blades
  • Impellers
  • Wear rings
  • Gear housings
  • Jaw Plates
  • Crusher Components
  • Bucket teeth
  • Liners
