    CASTING METHODS

    Components are made from Colmonoy® (nickel), Wallex® (cobalt) or customer-specific alloys using the casting methods of Investment, Centrifugal, Sand or Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). Over the last 50 years, our technical team has amassed a wealth of knowledge and know-how turning rigorous requirements into economically viable solutions. Our engineers can advise optimum alloy selection and process to suit specific needs.

    Investment – offers design flexibility, close dimensional control, consistency & repeatability, cost savings.

    Centrifugal or Spin – is used to produce high integrity densely structured, cylindrical components like bushes and sleeves.

    Sand – is typically used to produce larger components in smaller batches. It is capable of making mostly complex shapes using relatively inexpensive wood or resin patterns.

    Hot Isostatic Pressing – forms pore free bars or tubes with a fine grain homogeneous structure that enhances the physical properties of the cast alloy.


    RAPID PROTOTYPING – NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

    Wall Colmonoy’s castings are processed through applied technologies such as automation, collaborative robots, data analytics – embracing Industry 4.0. With an extensive laboratory and deeply experienced team of Material Scientists and Engineers, Wall Colmonoy can undertake R&D, Rapid Prototyping, and New Product Development. For rapid prototyping, the team implements 3-D printed investment patterns and tooling, reducing the necessity for tooling on small batches and product qualification. Quality castings are assured through advanced laser measurement techniques.


    HIGH QUALITY MANUFACTURE & ON-SITE LABORATORY

    Wall Colmonoy has an ongoing commitment to high quality manufacture and with its on-site laboratory and test facilities offers certification to national and internationally recognised standards. Each engineered component goes through a reassuringly stringent inspection process before final delivery. We maintain the quality assurance of ISO 9001.

    A proud member of Cast Metals Federation.
