Foundry

Clements Engineering products are truly Made in Britain with their own foundry on site, close to their other facilities in Bedfordshire.  The foundry produces castings for the marine, engineering and automotive industries. The castings are produced by experienced moulders from their Continuous Screw Sand Mixers using an alpha set system and cast from one of Clements Engineering’s 4 furnaces- 2 centre axis tilt furnaces, one lift out and an electric bale out furnace for aluminium. Clements Engineering has a low level attrition unit and reclamation plant where we recycle our used sand.

Clements are able to use a range of alloys including:

  • AB2   – cast weight up to 1.1 tonne
  • HTB1 – cast weight up to 750kg
  • LG2    – cast weight up to 200kg
  • LM 4   – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM 6   – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM 25 – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM 31 – cast weight up to 300kg

Various heat treatments are also available.

Clements can produce prototype or small batch castings from loose single impression patterns, or alternatively they can produce larger batches from boxless patterns. They work either from current tooling or provide tooling from their new fully equipped pattern and tooling facility on site.
