Reading time: min

Ductile and Gray iron foundry located in the north of Mexico (Monterrey Area) just two hours from the USA Texas Border.

Blackhawk is currently producing castings between 2 kgs (5 lbs) and 90 kgs (200 lbs) mainly for the heavy truck and agriculture markets.

It has an installed capacity of 25,000 metric tons per year using coreless induction melting and three green sand match-plate molding machines. It also uses CNC grinders and state of the art equipment for CAD design and solidification simulation.

Currently 15% of the production is supplied fully machined and 25% of the production is directly exported mainly to the USA.

Blackhawk was awarded as Metalcaster of the Year 2009 by the Modern Casting Magazine.

A project is being implemented at this moment for an additional 50% capacity. This project will be ready by late 2013 and it includes a new no-bake molding line 1.4 x 1.2 mts. (55” x 47”), coreless induction melting and finishing equipment. This will allow Blackhawk to offer castings up to 300 kgs (660 lbs).

One of the main reasons for attending CastExpo 2013 is to show our customers the new capabilities and get potential customers and business for our new line.
