OUR PROCESS

Each stage of production is designed to unlock the full casting potential of your components.

STAGE ONE

DESIGN OPTIMISATION

Streamlined from the start

We look at your job requirements from the inside out, identifying opportunities to enhance the design and refine the stages of production, to unlock the most casting potential from your components.

STAGE TWO

CASTING SIMULATION

Solving problems before they arise

We greatly decrease job development time and ensure castings are sound from the outset with Magmasoft technology, rendering flow and solidification simulations to pre-empt potential problems before tooling is ever made.

STAGE THREE

IN-HOUSE TOOLING

Rapid production at your fingertips

The power to output complex programming instructions through CAD/CAM for use in tool-making gives unparalleled speed and accuracy. We produce our own match-plate pattern equipment and Shell core boxes in-house, seeing a process that once took weeks happen in a matter of hours.

STAGE FOUR

CORE MAKING

Crafted from the inside out

Surface finish matters and we achieve it with our fleet of Primafond shell core machines, delivering structurally sound cores with precise geometry, while keeping raw material consumption to a minimum.

STAGE FIVE

MOULDING & CASTING

Where consistency meets capacity

Consistency matters at every stage. But when you’re pouring metal it matters most. That’s why we’ve created a production-line that places Hunter automation at it’s heart, giving us the capacity to produce 1000 moulds per shift.

STAGE SIX

CUTTING & FETTLING

Shaving off more than just metal

Reducing the errors associated with manual cutting saves valuable time down the line. Our Koyama auto-grinding machines remove gating systems and prepare castings to CNC tolerances prior to final machining.

STAGE SEVEN

CNC MACHINING

Your one-stop-precision-shop

There’s no need to pass castings between various subcontractors. As your complete manufacturing partner, we can supply you with finish-machined castings, ready to be integrated into your assembly, or pre-assembled to order.

STAGE EIGHT

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Peace of mind that’s pressure-tight

Safety and integrity count for nothing without accountability. Get peace of mind knowing that any product we manufacture for you meets and exceeds industry quality standards.
