The group produce very large aluminium sand castings for magnetic resonance imaging housings. Body scanning is one of medicine’s most valuable diagnosis techniques, and we are immensely proud to support this industry.
Few sand casting foundries exist that are capable of managing the sheer size of a component as a single piece, high integrity casting. For such a large and complicated pour, the metallurgy requires careful management, with components offered proof and finish machined.
We have supported general engineering applications such as steel works over many decades. We have produced components in all ferrous and non-ferrous alloys up to 15,000 kgs. Static sand castings have been supported with centrifugal castings such as screw down nuts. All of these components have been finish machined and regularly assembled with other parts.
