Specialist Cast Iron Foundry

Casting a wide range of materials Grey Iron, Ductile Iron, Compacted Graphite Iron, Steel, NiRisist, ADI in weights from 1kg to 500kg. Grainger & Worrall’s specialist iron foundry approaches prototype products with an open mind adding value, delivering successful high integrity castings.

Standing by the values of good engineering practice the customer expectation of accuracy, integrity, reliability and lead-time are guaranteed.

Our iron and Steel Cast products demonstrate superior quality and performance through the consistent application of best practise and technology. Multiple sand medias Silica, Chromite, Alumina, Zircon are employed along with appropriate coatings and chill placement within our high-precision engineered moulds.

No allowances are made for the preconceptions of the traditionalists – our approach will always consider the use of the latest technological developments such as the novel Hybrid Ceramic-Sand Core Casting Technology developed by Grainger &Worrall or Digital Sand Printing with High Heat Strength HHS binder technology specifically aimed at Iron and Steel castings.

The fundamental requirements of clean metal, controlled pouring and engineered gating systems are respected to eradicate casting defects at source.

Application of the latest technologies in the melting, analysis and control of metals include unique capability to produce prototype and specialist parts in Compacted Graphite Iron utilising the Sintercast Logoprocess.

Core capability is centred on highly complex sand castings. We offer a wide range of ferrous alloys, normal to high strength cast irons, ductile iron, CGI for cylinder block and heads, specialised high temperature alloys for turbocharger and exhaust system products.
