WHO WE ARE
PROUDLY IN BUSINESS FOR OVER 40 YEARS
As one of the leading pouring cup suppliers, we recognize that pouring cups are purchased on a very regular and repeatable schedule. TKG/Schaefer Industrial Ceramics is the only refractory manufacturer that makes both crucibles and pouring cups. Now you can combine your monthly purchases of cups with your requirements for crucibles and ramming materials too. We will palletize your purchase as efficiently as possible to minimize freight costs.
At TKG/Schaefer Industrial Ceramics, we will provide you with your alumina crucible as well as pre-weighed and packaged amounts of dry ram and wet ram, making it easier and saving your operators time when installing your crucibles. No need to purchase any more product than you need and when you actually need it!
Consider a different approach – a more simplified approach – to purchasing your foundry ceramics. When you consider the true costs of carrying large amounts of inventory and the additional freight for crucibles and ramming materials, it may also be the most economical approach. Buy only what you need as you need it. It’s easy to change your order quantities as your business climate changes and the benefit of leveling your cash flow is the kicker.
