Over the years it has been our goal to utilise the latest automated machinery to improve quality and reduce costs. One of the few remaining manual processes in the foundry is the cutting and dressing of castings.

As of this month things are about to change. We have just taken delivery of a brand new Koyama Barinder 400 robotic cut off and dressing machine from P.S. Auto Grinding Ltd. Accurate to 0.1mm and capable of reducing cutting and dressing times by up to 50%.

This machine is the latest in foundry technology. Along with the associated cost savings, this machine also removes the health and safety concerns associated with manual cutting and dressing.
