We own and operate a foundry in Mexicali, Mexico. This foundry operates using the latest pollution technology and has set new standards for the Mexican market. We produce cast iron products using green sand molding. This foundry produces 4,000 tons per year of public works castings.
At our Joint Venture facility (DDF) our annual production is 100,000 metric tons of about 3,000 different types of products.
The 3,000 different products include truck tractor & lifting equipment parts, mining machinery & oil industrial parts, construction municipal & fitting parts and more.
DDF is capable of producing ferrous (gray iron, Ductile iron, alloy steel, manganese steel, strength steel, wear resistant iron), and non ferrous metal ranging in size from a few ounces to 30,000 lbs.
DDF passed the ISO 9001:2000 certification in 2001.
DDF now has two foundries 10km cupolas from each other. The old foundry covers 33,000 m2. With two 10-ton cupolas, three vacuum molding systems and two no-bake sanding molding systems, the foundry has an annual capacity of 40,000 tons to produce construction machinery counterweights such as aerial platforms, scissors lifts, excavators, wheel loaders, crushers, crawlers, trailers, etc.
The new foundry is almost two times the old foundry in area. With designed annual production of 60,000 tons, it is equipped with two 10-ton and two 7-ton cupolas separately accompanying with 4 vacuum molding systems mainly for producing forklift counterweights and two no-bake sand molding systems for producing ductile iron / high strength cast iron castings.
Another three electric furnaces make this foundry capable of produce cast steel and wear resistance cast iron castings.
DDF has two machining workshops with over 50 machines and two CNC machining centers - vertical and horizontal that allows us to meet our customers various machining requirements.
