An Engineer asks: “How can I decrease parts count, maximize value, and improve reliability?” 

With MMP, it may be as easy as converting labor intensive ‘Weldments’ into castings.

Why is having a metallurgist onsite important?

In the casting world, it’s the difference between a house painter and Picasso. MMP’s Picasso is Joe Plunger. There are over 1,000 variables within the casting process. When foundry operations run into a problem either producing a part or heat treating, they call the expert, a metallurgist, in for a consultation. Metallurgists are highly trained professionals who are in high demand in the industry, and luckily at MMP, we have two as part of the ownership group, both working actively at the plant.

All foundries have casting challenges, called “scrap rate” in the industry. The fewer mistakes, or lower the scrap rate, the lower the cost factor in the price you pay.  With metallurgists on staff, we have certified experts to plan and identify problems before they become mistakes or scrap. With metallurgical oversight, you are assured that MMP will meet or exceed any quality specification you demand. If MMP can’t meet the specification you require, we won’t even quote!
