We are a trusted and preferred manufacturer and supplier to a wide range of global industries for three primary casting methods:
Iron casting is one of our three principle types alongside aluminium sand casting and aluminium gravity die-casting. The manufacture and supply of iron casting components has been an integral part of our business for over 200 years where this thoroughbred experience and our continuous investment in the latest technologies have steered us into an industry-leading position.
Aluminium casting is one of our two principle capabilities alongside iron casting.
Sand casting is the most versatile aluminium casting method where virtually any pattern can be pressed into a fine sand mixture to form a mold into which the aluminum is poured. Sand casting is very economical and ideally suited for one-off prototypes or small quantities, or when an intricate design is required. We also have a reputation for delivering high quality results for very large or irregular shaped castings; another advantage of the versatility of this method.
- Aluminium Gravity Die-casting.
Gravity die casting, in which molten metal is poured into a steel or cast iron die is normally used for medium to high-volume production. Accurate parts, requiring a minimum of machinery, can be produced via this very effective aluminium casting method. A variety of aluminium grades can be manufactured using either aluminium sand and gravity die casting processes. We can advise on the most appropriate grades for any project and our quality control procedures ensure grade consistency.
We are ISO Accredited and pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service.
