The Finest Finished Parts Start With The Best Materials

Proper Material Selection Is Essential To A Comprehensive Design.

Thankfully, we have dozens of patented alloys specifically created, tested, and used throughout the world in engines performing to ultra-high standards for wear, fuel economy, corrosion resistance, toughness, and the ability to perform in the harshest field operating conditions. What’s more, we have a unique understanding of material pairings that perform best in the valve train – something our customers rely upon as we guide them in alloy selection and testing.

In addition to the world’s best and widest selection of materials – cast, powder metal, centrifugal, and weld – we constantly develop new, cost-effective options that improve wear resistance and reduce cost. We are materially agnostic and will work with, develop and machine any type of alloy, unlike our competitors who are limited to one or two types of materials. Our sophisticated in-house metallurgical laboratory and equipment help us to develop tomorrow’s required materials. And in our experimental production facility—with its own induction-melting furnace and heat-treating equipment—our metallurgists produce and test new alloys. Talk with our technical staff to learn what materials are under test and may soon be available for production.

WelcomeTo Our New & Improved Website.

We specifically designed this site to be immersive and interactive as to your needs for information.  We realize that you’ve come to our site for a specific reason(s).  We want you to be in the driver’s seat to find what you need. Instead of the typical website you might see from our competitors or from other global OEM component makers, we re-imagined this site from your point of view.  We packaged information based on typical customer investigations and created hyperlinks to provide you with the most flexibility to get to what you need to know.  The scaffolding we built around known areas of interest and needs allow for quick movement in and around connected topics.  We hope your search is productive.  And, if you see something you think would make our site function even better, then email me directly (below):
