MOTORSPORT FOUNDRY: FORMULA ONE GRADE CASTINGS
We have a co-operative understanding of our Motorsport customers, including unique confidentiality, high integrity casting and tooling requirements. At our foundry in Bridgnorth, we’ve incorporated a specific process that’s been designed and developed to produce Formula One grade castings in support of the Motorsport Industry.
Unrivaled experience in racing, rally engine and transmission programs
Our experience in racing, rally engine and transmission programs is unparalleled. We use this experience to meet demanding requirements for high complexity, high quality and compressed lead-times place, as well as technology to achieve the highest level of casting quality in both Aluminium and CGI (compacted graphite iron).
Championship winning engine programs
We’re unique in the provision of a team and facility dedicated to Motorsport providing quality assured components.
In house computer tomography and casting simulation technology combined with the Cosworth Casting process consistently provides the race engine designer with the tools required to deliver multiple championship winning engine programs.
Over many years, we’ve developed the roll-over casting process to meet the latest requirements in high integrity castings. As a result, we produce the most reliable castings in the world.
Making globally renowned, reliable castings
Only defect free parts get delivered to our customers. These castings are achieving higher strengths and levels of durability whilst meeting the needs of engine downsizing; meeting the key challenges of being lighter, thinner and more accurate.There are Golden Rules that exist for making ‘the perfect casting’.
- Developed over recent years by many academics these focus on the avoidance of defects borne out of shortcomings in liquid melting, effects of oxide (bifilm) formation through turbulent pouring and gas bubble generation, importance of temperature gradient and adequate feeding.
- There are others but so far these ‘ideals’ can be summarised as the Casting Process. We operate a specialised industry leading Low Pressure Pumped system, formally known as Cosworth Rollover Casting Process.
