Moulding

The moulding area consists of three loops, one for coremaking and a large and small loop for moulds.
We use the Novaset sand binder system and all moulding is boxed for improved quality.
The recent addition of a core blower has also improved the quality and speed of our coremaking.

Melting

Three electric induction furnaces enable us to melt up to 3.8 tonnes of steel.

Heat Treatment

The state-of-the-art, new furnace is capable of heat-treating up to 5t of material at a time and utilises a 51,000l jet-chilling process post-heat. The facilities not only meet, but exceed, current specifications on quality and health and safety, achieving a transfer time of just 30 seconds.

Finishing

Finishing processes include:  Cutting and Grinding, Shotblasting, Grit Blasting, Pickling, Plating, Proof and Finished Machining.
Welding is carried out by ASME IX qualified welders.

Inspection

All castings are inspected to the prescribed specification which could include any or all of the following:
Visual, Dimensional, MPI, DPI, Ultrasonic and Radiography.
