Our gravity die casting foundry is set up to ensure we offer our customers competitive prices and excellent quality. We can produce gravity die castings in aluminium and zinc up to a weight of 25Kg. All our operators follow precise work instructions to ensure quality is consistently repeated.

Due to the applications our die castings are made for only the best quality of metal is sourced. This ensures our castings meet our customers demands and expectations. Certificate of conformances are issued with every delivery of metal along with a chemical analysis. We are then able to offer full metal traceability from the melt number to finished die casting.

Tools can be made on bespoke frames with hydraulic movement which helps production rates and also extends tool life. Tools can also be manufactured for tilting gravity machines which offer more control over the process and higher production rates.
