Focused on cost reduction
Castings are manufactured on five dedicated moulding lines that result in the lowest manufacturing cost whilst achieving the technical criteria required.
Castings produced by this method offers the ultimate dimensional accuracy for small components. Machining allowances can be reduced or even eliminated with tolerances of 0.25mm achievable.
Casting weight range 0.10 – 20 kgs Boxless Moulding
Taking full advantage of the strength of the Alphaset chemically bonded sand system, compact moulds provide a cost effective method of manufacturing castings. Compact moulds are tailor made to suit the component size ensuring that material usage is kept to an absolute minimum. Alphaset is recognised within the industry as offering the best surface finish and dimensional accuracy of any chemically bonded sand system currently available. Moulds are handled with self levelling hydraulic manipulators and flood coated to ensure that a superior surface finish and accuracy for which BAS Castings is renowned is maintained
Small Boxless Moulding: – Casting weight range 0.25 – 25 kgs
Medium Boxless Moulding: – Casting weight range 25 – 200 kgs
Metal Box Moulds
When component size is too large for boxless moulding we have two boxed sections that handle large components efficiently and safely. Where economically sized moulding boxes are not available purpose made boxes are procured. Board mounted production pattern equipment ensures that complex castings are manufactured efficiently to achieve the lowest production costs. Step joint and diablo location ensures that the mould halves close precisely giving neat flush joint lines.
Consultation with our technical staff at the design stage will result in taking the sand casting process to its extremes enabling cast features to be incorporated resulting in reduced machining and finishing costs.
Medium Metal Box: – 200 – 750 kgs
Large Metal Box: – 750 – 4000 kgs
