FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Pricing & Purchasing

How can I get a quote?


You can request a quote for castings by sending an email to jay@russelloyfoundry.com. Before a part can be priced, we will require a print and a material specification at a minimum. The more information you can send (part weights, estimated annual demand, pictures of existing tooling, etc.) the faster we will be able to process your request. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.




How much do castings cost?


The cost of casting varies according to project demands such as:

  • Casting function
  • Dimensions
  • Metal grade
  • Tolerances
  • Finishing / secondary processing requirements
Casting relies on economies of scale, so higher volume production runs will cost less per casting than low volume runs. For detailed information on costs for your project, request a quote at our contact page or email: jay@russelloyfoundry.com




What is the lead time for my order?


Lead time vary based on several factors, including current facility capacity, order volume, complexity of parts and materials required. Our current standard lead time is 14 weeks from receipt of purchase order since iron castings are currently in high demand, but we are flexible and will do everything we can to accomodate. We are continuously working to decrease lead time and increase capacity, and our process is fluid enough that we are able to satisfy urgent needs for customers as they arise. Our new equipment installed in Nov. 2020 will be 4 times faster and should reduce lead-times to 6 weeks by Jan. 2021.




How can I pay for my order?


Payment by ACH is our preferred method of payment. When submitting payment by check allow time for transit and processing. Orders ship only after checks have been received, processed and funds deposited. Send checks collect to: 1010 4th Street, P.O. Box, Durant, Iowa, 52747. Other available payment methods are: Check and electronic funds transfer (EFT): Specify EFT when submitting an order and we will provide bank transfer details.




How much do custom products cost?


All our casting work is custom and priced on a case-by-case basis. Custom castings and moldings have many elements that influence their final cost, including pattern complexity, run size, casting process, material used, and secondary processing required. Consultation with Jay Irwin, President of Russelloy, will help find the most economical combination of these factors to answer your needs. Contact Jay at jay@russelloyfoundry.com.
