Moulding

Flexibility of moulding production facilities to meet customer requirements

All moulds are manufactured in either metal moulding boxes or tailor made compact moulds when manufacturing smaller components. Both processes utilise a alkaline phenolic chemically bonded sand system. This medium produces a hard rigid mould that gives the resulting casting a superior surface finish and improved dimensional stability over other moulding mediums.

Shell cores can be utilised where the customer demands a high level of precision around internal passageways. Zircon and Chromite sands are used for super heated areas of the mould / cores or to promote a change in directional solidification.

The surfaces of all moulds are coated in Zircon based refractory mould paints to further enhance the surface finish of the casting.
