History of Whip Mix
Whip Mix started to make a name for itself in the 1920’s with innovative solutions in the lost wax casting process. In the 1940’s, we started supplying other companies during the war effort. After staring a precision casting foundry based on our experience in the dental field, Whip Mix brought those innovations to the industrial casting field, and receiving U.S. Patents for many of those improvements. We are still proud of the way our small, lightweight, precision, castings found their way into the aviation industry. Many important components, such as the machine gears for the Norden bombsight were traceable to the technology we developed.
Today, our equipment and materials continue to be highly regarded as the standard in dental labs around the globe.
