Greensand Moulding in Yorkshire
Our greensand moulding process uses a complex blend of clay and water that is synthesised to create a finalised material that can be pushed against a pattern to produce a mould. Water is used in conjunction with the clay to which binds together with the sand. We use 2 pin lift moulding machines which can create both aluminium and copper based metal products.
Air Set Moulding in West Yorkshire
This technique uses a free standing mould of considerable strength. Because it is free standing, it doesn't need a moulding box and parts can be unlimited in size due to this.
Since our company began in 1952 we have believed in our ability to provide customer satisfaction from the design right through to a finished machined component. Working closely with our customers and understanding their needs is vital to a successful relationship.
