State-of-the-Art Proving and Improving Ground

Columbus Castings state-of -the-art Advanced Technology Center is the finest of its kind in North America for proving and improving the design, quality, and cost effectiveness of steel castings for railroad, mass transit, mining, off-highway equipment, miltary, and other industrial applications.  The 10,000 sqaure foot facility is 100% designed, built, and equipped for static monotonic and dynamic testing of new and existing products.  Much of the testing that we perform defines the optimal combination of strength, weight, and cost in product design and metallurgy to ensure compliance with industry, government, and legal requirements.

Our Advanced Technology Center is staffed with highly trained qualified people who have experience in design validation and verification, test engineering, and APQP process deliverables.  They work closely with our customers and our design engineers to meet or exceed customer specifications, government regulations, and Columbus Castings standards, developmental objectives, and continuous improvement goals.
