Aluminum Casthouse

In-House Aluminum Casting Solutions

Our recently upgraded, state-of-the-art aluminum casthouse allows Taber Extrusions to manufacture aluminum billets for aerospace, marine, and other specialized industries. Combining advanced, specialized systems with experienced metallurgists and research engineers, Taber is a capable of producing an aluminum billet of superior quality. The full range of aluminum alloys along with custom chemistries are available.

A new level of purity and renewability

Taber makes use of Almex’s Liquid Aluminum Refining System (LARS) for refinement and purification prior to casting. This process removes dissolved hydrogen gas, nitrides, oxides, and alkali metals, eliminating the impurities and gasses in a controlled and environmentally friendly process. And our dedication to using 75% commercial and extrusion manufacturing scrap further highlights our commitment to renewability.
