The company is delighted to announce that the brand new Disamatic D3-Z-425 moulding line is now fully operational.
Part of a major investment programme at the Tipton foundry that will exceed £10m, the new line was installed earlier this year. It has provided a 50% increase in production capacity and together with our 4 other lines, will allow to manufacture over 1,300 quality assured castings per hour.
The D3-Z-425 has been built in a building close to the one that houses our Kunkel Wagner line and together with Disamatic 2110 and 131Z plus airset capabilities at our nearby Dudley foundry, provide a unique ability to select the perfect production platform for each project.
A new 60m AMC has also been installed to provide extended casting cooling times for even greater metallurgical stability.Director Mick Cramphorn is delighted by the development news within the Thomas Dudley Foundry.
