In previous blogs we have explained making sand moulds using wooden patterns. Core Assembly is a different way of making sand moulds for iron casting. Simply put a mould made in this way is like a 3D jigsaw puzzle in negative - the technique requires great skill and takes years to master.
Customers can rely on our experience, knowledge and skills, both in the foundry and our pattern shop, to deliver quality castings. We manufacture different products for different clients, many of a bespoke nature, often one off or low volume.
We offer a prompt response to customers whose enquiries will be dealt with personally and by an experienced member of staff. Whether it's an enquiry about an art casting, reproducing decorative railings, or a 12 tonne machine bed, customers can expect professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic support from staff with hands on expertise and understanding. They can also expect a quotation in 48 hours and a commitment to lead times and hitting delivery dates.
We also offer a casting supply service for higher volume needs through our partnerships with overseas foundries.
Bespoke architectural iron castings for new build, conservation, restoration and heritage projects.
Fine art castings in iron commissioned by artists for public and private projects.
Castings for machine tools, pumps, valves and other engineering casting projects where grey iron is required.
Imported castings from China for a cost effective alternative for low and medium volume demand.
We have our own in house pattern shop so that we can provide bespoke castings to meet customers' design needs.
