Innovation and Problem-Solving Mitigate Supply Chain Risk
Through collaborative engineering and a prototype 3D-printed core assembly, Waupaca Foundry provided a solution that could improve quality, delivery and cost for a compressor body already in production. It also meant reliably changing the iron casting manufacturing process from horizontal to vertical molding, as well as reshoring the part to a U.S. supply base—with complete peace of mind.
