Lead counterweights in every size, shape and quantity you can imagine.

Because of its density, lead is an ideal material for ballast – either for weight distribution or as a counterweight.

At Ultraray Metals, we’re pleased to always provide the level of material supply, project management, consulting or partnership that works best for you.

With three manufacturing facilities and several additional warehouse locations across North America, our foundry direct advantage ensures only the best in quality matched to production capacity and custom engineering expertise that is unrivalled. Our in-house machining and shipping experts will deliver even the most demanding lead counterweight projects on spec, on budget, and on time.
