“The Lethbridge Iron Works vision statement reads: “Our success is driven by relationships with our employees, our customers, and our suppliers”, and Applied Process is exactly the caliber of supplier that we seek out. Leth Iron customers expect the highest quality castings commercially available, and Applied Process is the only company that we can trust to heat treat iron to those standards. When we’re presented with casting opportunities that require heat treatment but don’t fit within our process, I’m always confident that the Applied Process team will provide exceptional service to our customers. Their process control, communication, and consistency set them apart in the industry, and we have been proud to use Applied Process as our austempering destination for over 25 years.”

Pier Foundry values the relationship with Applied Process and we work together to achieve solutions for our customers when Austempered Ductile Iron can be of benefit. AP has three world class Salt Bath Quenching facilities with very technical and professional support staff. AP provides us with competitive pricing and lead times and has very fast turnaround on quotes. I would highly recommend AP to others who seek service in Austempering and ADI. They are number one when it comes to Austempering and Salt Bath Quench Heat Treatment and the technical support that goes along with it.

The high level of customer service at Applied Process is exceptional on its own but it comes with technical support that makes the combination truly outstanding. The response to State Line’s needs is prompt and the value added in supporting us on technical matters is a tangible benefit. On several occasions their technical experts have made recommendations that led to quick, cost effective solutions. I highly recommend Applied Process.

Austempered Ductile Iron was a new material for my company and the staff at Applied Process were incredibly helpful in advising me of the advantages of the material and what kinds of considerations to use in the design of the castings. The team exceeded my expectations by spending time educating me about the material and process, so I was very comfortable designing with this material in mind. The small R&D Furnace at the Livonia, MI plant, was crucial to my development process, allowing me to test a small number of development samples. We have successfully replaced steel forgings with austempered ductile iron castings, and plan to make more use of austempering to set ourselves apart from our competition.
