A Revolutionary Approach

A Process Unmatched in its Uniqueness & Efficiency.

With over 40 years of operation producing well over a billion pounds of Aluminum the Golden Aluminum Block Caster is by far the most successful block caster in the world.

The block caster uses tracks of copper coated steel blocks on tracks to cool and solidify the aluminum into a sheet.

The block concept was a breakthrough in thinking vs previous belt concepts as the blocks had the thermal mass and rigidity to produce a sheet of consistent structure while running at a relatively high speed.

A Revolutionary Approach

A Process Unmatched in its Uniqueness & Efficiency.

Before 1982, aluminum beverage cans were made solely from raw aluminum. But all of that changed when the revered and revolutionary Bill Coors envisioned a more sustainable approach, which involved repurposing used beverage cans and recasting them as aluminum alloys to be used in the production of new beverage cans.

Fast forward to today — Our solutions are a testament to the fact that Bill Coors’ vision has since then blossomed. Today, Golden Aluminum incorporates proprietary casting technology to deliver to our customers the highest quality aluminum products in the fastest way possible. Our processes and solutions are what set us apart.
