Alucast looks to build on £1m of electrification wins by joining new cluster

Sep 25, 2020

A recent £2.5m investment in its new CNC machining shop is paying off for Alucast, with the new technology paying a pivotal role in helping it secure new contracts in the electrification sector.

The UK’s leading independent aluminium foundry is using its increased 5-axis capability and MagmasoftÒ casting simulation to develop and produce a range of complex casings and housings for high profile car makers across Europe.

Some of these products are liquid cooled and feature complex core designs, requiring high integrity castings that must be leak proof and finished with the latest machining techniques.
