Iron Castings at Durham Foundry
At Durham Foundry we have been producing engineering iron castings for over a hundred years. As well as castings for the engineering market, our customer base also covers the decorative, architectural and artistic sectors and we can supply castings from one off up to small to medium batch production using Alkali Phenolic resin bonded sands. Our workforce of highly skilled moulders can work from complex loose pattern equipment, particularly where low volumes are required, whilst our moulding line is suited for batch production. Our long trading history, coupled with an investment programme that has enabled us to keep up with modern production methods and environmental legislation has meant that we have been involved with many engineering projects and continue to be so. All our castings are produced to a current ISO material specification along with any further testing which a customer may require.
Our diverse customer base has also given us experience in a wide range of applications for iron castings , including pumps and valves, forges, foundries and rolling mills, automotive and aerospace, a wide range of OEM’s, quarries and mines, railways and rolling stock, local authorities and artists and sculptors. We also have long term trading relationships with local pattern makers, machine shops and surface finishers which enable us to quote for the complete supply of machined and painted castings.
