Architectural & Body In White Castings

The flexibility of the automated casting process is effectively used in our bespoke facility to supply a diverse range of high quality, large complex aluminium castings. Repeatability and high confidence in the manufacture of moulds in low to medium volumes has resulted in the successful delivery of multiple projects from two metre long automotive torque tubes, commercial transmission housings through to three dimensional sand-cast aluminium panels.

The creative yet functional foundry design was the concept of Grainger& Worrall, driven by customer requirements it has allowed a combination of flexibility and low tooling cost to support varied requests for high quality niche casting supply.

The foundry includes articulated mixers, fill and strip stations and low-level knockout systems.

Thermally stable castings with fine surface detail can be produced in a variety of aluminium alloys suitable for BIW (Body In White) structural automotive castings, large transmission and architectural applications such as cast aluminium wall panels and roof tiles creating impressive building facades for prestige building projects.

All sand is thermally reclaimed in house supporting a sustainable and cost effective supply solution.
