Happy 70th Birthday LA Aluminum!
This year landmarks 70 years of aluminum casting success. A very special thanks to our customers and employees- none of this would have been possible without you! We welcome you to join us on the journey of how it all began... http://laaluminum.com/about
LA Aluminum Featured in national Metal Casting magazine
Much to our surprise, LA Aluminum was featured in the March/April Metal Casting Design & Purchasing magazine article about “Knowing When To Switch To Casting”. The article features our Casting Competition entry from last year and covers the specific signs a part needs a new manufacturing method. We are highlighted under “#7: The market is ready for an improvement” and features MCDP’s rendition of how we helped develop their new high end product line. A very special thank you to Shannon Wetzel and Jim Beckwith at Metal Casting Design & Purchasing magazine.
New Mazak Arrival
Just in time for Christmas... It's with much gratitude we are pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new Mazak Horizontal CNC. This machine comes just two years after our last Mazak Horizontal purchase and is intended to pair side by side to increase speed and efficiency. Our Foundry also received a gift- a new and upgraded variable speed hoist that will improve safety and maneuverability.
