Alcoa Howmet's primary business is the manufacture of precision investment castings that meet our customers' specifications.
Alcoa Howmet pioneered the airfoil casting process. Our numerous breakthroughs include casting intricate internal and external features in a variety of sophisticated alloys.
Alcoa Howmet created the integral casting process in the 1960s, casting critical components with supporting structures as one unit, often eliminating the need for fabricated assemblies.
Alcoa Howmet began offering large structural castings in the early 1980s and manufactures frames, cases, airframe structures and other components from a variety of light-weight metals and superalloys.
From performance racing to the oil production industry, Alcoa Howmet continuously explores new markets. Our castings can provide reduced weight, increased performance and cost savings.
