Foundry in a Box

Posted on October 19, 2021 by Thomas Dudley

The Cast Metals Federation have recently presented Thomas Dudley Limited with their innovative Foundry in a Box. It is a means to demonstrate the theory of casting without the danger of hot molten cast iron. Instead the project uses a metal with a much lower melting point that can be heated by a gas burner.

However, the mould making process is the same as we have traditionally used in our floor moulding section and is the basis for our airset and Disa moulding lines. The aim is to show students how the casting process works and we plan to use it as part of our intervention with local schools.
