As part of our total service to the industry Alan Beckwith Macbro has its own in-house core, chemical sand and shell mould production facilities. This allows us to not only make cores and moulds for use in our own foundry but to also manufacture cores and moulds for outside customers.
We are able to make and supply moulds for all types of metals, ferrous and non-ferrous metals using your pattern equipment or we can manufacture equipment for you.
For non-ferrous and steel castings we can arrange to have these cast, fettled and cleaned ready for you to use.
For the manufacture of cores we are able to employ the latest technologies in cold box resins, either catalysts activated or gas setting processes.
We have available a Warill CB-20 Autocore which can take core boxes up to 550mm x 450mm in size, and blow cores up to 30kg in a single blow or larger weights using multiple blows. The Auto core can also be used to manufacture stack moulds to your specifications again up to 550mm x 45mm in area and to the required number of biscuits.
With the catalyst activated systems we can manufacture up to any size mould required and any quantity required.
It may be that you want us to cast your moulds or if not we can deliver to you your chemical moulds.
For those high precision, dimensionally accurate castings or superior finish cores and moulds then our shell core section can supply.
We have a number of shell core and shell mould machines available with the capability of taking shell boxes up to 610mm x 610mm or shell moulds up to 810mm x 510mm.
