Casting Foundry Capabilities

Our steel casting foundry manufactures a wide range of components for multiple industries, including mining, recycling, sugar, cement, oil and gas, heavy transport, power generation, and mineral processing.

Our propriety melting process produces clean, high-quality steel. Clean steel has fewer impurities, which makes it more robust and durable.

With a total pour capacity of 22 tonnes, our foundry has the greatest single pour capacity in Queensland and the capability to manufacture cast lips for the broadest range of mining-class machines in the world.

Some of the components we manufacture include:

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Recycled Steel

We’re always looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint, and one way is by recycling reclaimed steel. Steel is infinitely recyclable and produces net zero emissions.

Our manufacturing process almost exclusively uses recycled scrap steel to produce new, world-class mining components. We recover scrap steel from our customers and all waste steel from our own manufacturing process.

Recycled Sand

As part of our Queensland foundry’s casting process, we use virgin silica sand blended with reclaimed sand to create molds. Molten steel is poured into the sand molds. As the steel cools, it takes the shape of the mold. The sand is then conditioned to be reused to make new molds.

In 2021, we installed a new sand reclamation plant so we could recycle more sand effectively. This has decreased our consumption of new sand by ~50%. Not only does this reduce the need for new sand, but it also means fewer truckloads to dispose of waste sand, further reducing carbon emissions.


Advanced Casting Technology

We’re proud of our industry-leading casting equipment. With our proprietary melting process, our two electric arc furnaces produce stronger and purer steel than achievable with induction furnaces. We use two state-of-the-art Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES) for chemical analysis to ensure our quality is always up to standard.

Five in-house heat treatment ovens to bring steel up to tensile strength with superior impact strength at -40C.

By keeping this process in-house, we retain the highest quality control standards while increasing efficiency. We’re able to work at a variety of temperatures, including 850-1150C (anneal, normalize, and quench hardening), 500-690C (temper), and 150-200C (stress relieve, age).


Skilled and Experienced Team

Our expert team bring a combined experience of 600+ years to our Australian foundry. Onsite metallurgists and casting designers ensure that work is to the highest standard. We use Solidworks for drafting and modeling of products and Magma Software to create casting simulations, all in service of the world’s best castings.
