At the heart of the building is our new furnace and casting pit, re-instated after 30 years to bring new safety, efficiency, and capacity into our foundry.
We cast in Silicon Bronze, Brass, and Silver and thanks to new processes and investment in machinery we have cut our scrap by more than 40%. This means that we can achieve greater accuracy and faster turnarounds on all pieces.
Some of our clients require only parts for which we offer a “cast only” service. This is a very cost effective way of having bronzes made and is most commonly used for architectural hardware and lighting.
For these projects we cast the required number of pieces and dispatch them after they are knocked out and cleaned of the remaining investment plaster.
