CastAlum is continuing its investment program with the order of a 2000 tonne Buhler Prince HPDC machine. As with all of our diecasting equipment this DCM is part of a fully automated cell complete with a tower melt furnace. The cell will be installed for production by April 2016.
The new DCM ordered in July 2015 is now fully integrated into our production capacity, operating on a 6 x 24 hr basis. The technology of this new DCM is advanced by up-graded ladling systems and by spray head controls. Further the water and lubrication flow per shot is closely controlled and monitored as an integrated production parameter
CastAlum have invested in new shotblasting equipment that operates in a smaller production footprint, used less energy and less shotblasting medium. This equipment, operating 24 x6, was purchased to improve our capacity and waste usage equation
