Facilities & Services
Our well-established production facilities will satisfy the most exacting industrial requirements
All our castings are made from virgin ingots, supplied within specification by reputable manufacturers. Each and every batch we cast is checked with our in-house Spectrograph to make sure all castings are supplied within requested specifications. To ensure continuous supply of product, we keep a stock of bronze and aluminium ingots in our metal stores.
We are able to supply the following up to a casting mass of 1500kg (excluding runners & risers):
- Phosphor Bronze
- Gun Metal
- High Tensile Brass
- Aluminium Bronze
- Leaded Bronze
- 60/40 Brass
We also produce various grades of Aluminium up to a mass of 500kg.
We are able to produce a wide range of Carbon Steels, as well as a selection of Low Alloy Steels up to a maximum casting mass of 5000kg (excluding runners & risers). All Steels are heat treated in our in-house furnaces. We also produce a full range of Cast Iron (Grey Iron), as well as Ductile Iron (SG Iron), up to a maximum casting mass of 7000kg (excluding runners & risers).
Our Green Sand Plant produces medium to large runs of Cast Iron, as well as Ductile Iron (SG Iron).
Metal is supplied from four dedicated, state of the art Induction Furnaces. Two 1½-ton furnaces, one 3-ton furnace and one 4-ton Furnace give us the versatility to meet your requirements. All cast metal is analysed using our in-house Spectrograph to ensure your castings are supplied within specification.
- 610mm x 455mm (24” x 18”)
- 610mm x 610mm (24” x 24”)
- 900mm x 460mm (35½” x 18”)
All casting’s produced on this plant are Stress Relieved in our in-house Heat Treatment Furnaces prior to delivery.
By ordering your bush close to your finished machined sizes, not only do you save money on your machining time, but you also only pay for Bronze you need, no wastage.
The capacity of the furnaces are 3 Tons, and 5 Tons.
We are able to include a Heat Treatment Graph in your quality control data pack if required.
This is done by analysing a metal sample from the furnace, using our in-house Spectrograph, prior to pouring into the mould. If required, a Chemical Certificate will be supplied with the casting for your records.
Customers supply sketches and/or samples and our team uses them to produce professional engineering drawings. With over 100 years of experience in this industry, we will add value to the design of your casting to help you achieve a superior quality casting.
The ability to build a pattern in a way that will best facilitate the feeding of the castings is of paramount importance. Far too often private pattern shops do not take the moulding process into consideration and rather opt for the quickest and cheapest way to construct a pattern. This, more often than not, results in a poor quality casting.
Having qualified and experience pattern-makers on site who are familiar with our casting methods and processes eliminates this problem.
