Adelaide Casting foundry in South Australia
Castech is a modern foundry in Australia, based in the Adelaide suburb of Wingfield, South Australia.
Castech supplies engineering based industries with high quality, competitively priced ferrous and non-ferrous castings that are delivered on time.
Castech’s Adelaide moulding and casting services has the capabilities to deliver for your projects requirements.
Castech offers a complete Australian owned and operated foundry service from prototyping and trial runs through to production. The phenolic resin sand moulds we use give your castings an excellent surface finish and dimensional accuracy.
To meet your needs, we are able to work with metals such as aluminium, bronze, grey irons, white irons, carbon steels and alloy steels, including stainless steels.
Melting capacities range from 100 to 1000 kg. This means that we are able to produce your castings in various alloys and a range of sizes.
To guarantee the integrity of your castings, we employ the latest computer-aided technology to perform casting solidification simulation before actual moulding takes place. Prior to pouring every heat, we analyse the metal using optical emission spectrometry and computer generated correction to ensure that each production run is the same and certified as conforming.
All castings are carefully hand finished to remove flashing during the casting process. Each casting is then shot blasted with stainless steel shot to give the casting a uniform texture and finish.
The team here at Castech has extensive experience in casting methods and technologies and we have faced and solved a myriad of challenges from various industries.
