A Message From Farrar

We have updated news to share about our investments in new technology.

In late winter we began the installation of two new pieces of equipment:

A Laempe core machine for our foundry core department

A Fanuc robot for our grinding operations

Our Laempe core machine is in full production mode, and we are in the process of converting core boxes to run on this machine. The core machine has met all expectations and is operating as designed. We will be continuing the process of core box conversion for several months, with new castings having their respective core boxes manufactured for processing on the Laempe core machine.

We have had numerous “eyes on our implementation” of the robot and vision system from not only suppliers, but from other foundries. For years, the technology to perform completely unattended robotic operation for a grinding cell was thought to be cost prohibitive for mid-sized foundries. With the choosing of our robot integrator, BG Automation, and the superb staff here at Farrar, we are nearing the end of the debugging process. The vision system has proven to be effective and our employee involvement in this working cell continues to decrease as we see an increased number of parts being processed by this automated technology.

You may have also noticed an increased digital presence from Farrar. In addition to our sales efforts, our CFO, Gregg Farrar, and sales associate Dalton Douglas continue to keep our respected name and brand at the forefront of quality castings safely produced on time. We can be followed on Facebook and LinkedIn in addition to numerous blog posts and write-ups.

We are excited for what we have seen in 2024 and welcome the opportunity to help you solve any of the casting concerns you may encounter; from part design, patten development, prototypes, and full production to annealing, machining, and specialized outsourced processes.

We look forward to our continued growth with you.

About Farrar Corporation

Our History

Farrar Corporation began in 1933 as a blacksmith and repair shop. The green sand foundry was added in 1967 as a way to make our own castings and then grew to the point that Farrar dropped its own product line to focus only on providing cast and machined parts to O.E.M. customers. In the early 1990’s, Farrar began producing Austempered Ductile Iron (ADI) in addition to the standard ASTM grades of Ductile Iron. Farrar is a family-owned/privately held corporation that is currently in its third generation of ownership. Through the years we have grown into a nationally recognized company known for our service, specializing in providing finish machined ductile iron castings and assemblies. Farrar Corporation is your single source for pattern design and production throughout the continental United States.
