Foundry

Truly "Made in Britain"!

With our own on-site foundry close to our other facilities in Bedfordshire, Clements Engineering produces castings for the marine engineering industries.

The castings are produced by experienced moulders from our Continuous Screw Sand Mixers using an alpha set system and cast from one of the 4 furnaces we have on the premises.

We have 2 centre axis tilt furnaces, one lift out and an electric bale out furnace for aluminium. We have a low level attrition unit and reclamation plant where we recycle our used sand.

We 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
  • LM4   – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM6   – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM25 – cast weight up to 300kg
  • LM31 – cast weight up to 300kg

Various heat treatments are also available.

We can produce prototype or small batch castings from loose single impression patterns, or alternatively larger batches from boxless patterns.

We work from current tooling or can provide tooling from our fully equipped onsite pattern and tooling facility.
