About DP Cast

For over 50 years, DP Cast has been producing custom steel and aluminum investment castings for North American aerospace, nuclear, defense and industrial clients. We have a proven track record in “aerospace-quality,” precision parts. In fact, both facility – and our experts – are certified to serve the aerospace industry and defense requirements – where each part we make is precise and enduring. We apply that same quality and care into every part, for every industry, ensuring quality – and saving our clients time and money.

*DP Cast FCG Results are based on Test Bars. Tolerances may vary depending on process, design complexity and material specifications. DP Cast Functional Counter Gravity results represent internal destructive testing conducted by our in-house licensed inspectors using equipment certified to ASTM E8/ASTM 8557. DP Cast is lab control at source and Non-Destructive Testing control at source. A representative sampling of DP Cast FCG results have been validated by a third-party, NADCAP-licensed laboratory.
