Our gravity operations work in tandem with our pressure foundry. This encourages the sharing of technology, engineering ideas and design / process experiences. This further aids and enhances both product and process developments
Our gravity foundry operates varied processes incorporating hydraulic tilting systems and numerous semi automated casting process and operations. We also operate on a more traditional basis for lower volume components ensuring both large and lower volume customers are catered for.
JHL’s gravity foundry in many ways highlights the diverse range of components we make. The gravity foundry serves around 6 different industry sectors with volumes ranging from 30 castings per annum to 70 thousand. Shot weights range from as low as 0.2kg up to 40kg with up to 10 different alloy specifications being used at any given time.
