Delivering a single source manufacturing solution for aluminium castings is helping a Black Country foundry bounce back from the pandemic. Alucast, which employs nearly 100 people at its factory in Wednesbury, has secured a number of new wins with major carmakers thanks to its ability to provide simulation, casting, machining and the latest testing facilities.
The latter is now strengthened further with the company investing more than £200,000 into creating a specialist dye penetrant resource. A form of NDT, dye penetrant is used to assess structural vehicle components and other parts for cracks. This new line has been successfully operating for several months at Alucast, which is part of the Manufacturing Assembly Network (MAN), where five employees are already fully trained.
