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.
