SAND CASTING
Specialising in: High temperature steels, low temperature steels, corrosion and acid resistant steels, duplex, super duplex, nickel based alloys, tool steels, non-alloyed steels, heat resisting steels and modular cast iron.
Our German partner are specialising in producing sand castings with complex geometries. The size range of sand castings manufactured is comprehensive.

  • Sand castings from 5KG-20Tonnes (cast size) (35 tonne ;liquid weight)
  • Production envelope 7mtr x 7mtr x 6mtr.
  • Semi-automatic resin sand line 2mtr x 2mtr x 1.5mtr 10 (10 tonne cast size)

INVESTMENT CASTING/ LOST WAX CASTING

  • Investment casting using lost wax
  • Max weight 70KG
  • Possible wall thickness min 1mm (depending on geometries)
  • Production robots
  • Surface tolerance to category 1 based on VDG P 690 norm

CERAMIC MOULD CASTINGS
Features:

  • Maximum dimensions 1.8mtr x 1.8mtr x 1.2mtr
  • Maximum weight 1000kg
  • Superior contour accuracy
  • Exceptional surface quality
  • Surface finish to ISOCT9-10 / GTA147-15

PARTIAL CERAMIC
This is a hybrid process combining both sand and ceramic casting techniques. (CORE CERAMIC: MOULD SAND)
BENEFITS:

  • Better surface finish compared with sand casting.
  • Lower cost in comparison to full ceramic mould casting.
