Yesterday our yard was completely full of cranes, flat beds, and containers ready to collect and handle one of our largest ever shipments of aluminium casting machines and ancillaries. The order consisted of a combination of new and used equipment and included a new McIntyre Orca aluminum casting machine, a used notch bar casting machine and a fully reconditioned Tardis 1062 aluminium dross press. JMC ingot casting machines were originally developed in our own foundry primarily to work with aluminium. We wanted our casting machines to last, and to run smoothly with minimum down time, so we designed all our casting machines accordingly.
Orca is a 3 to 8 tonne an hour machine depending on customer choice of moulds and cooling. It has rapidly become one of our most popular casting machines with systems working in Europe, Mexico and the USA – and now hopefully in Tunisia before Christmas. Tardis is a unique system for recovering aluminium from hot dross. Aluminum dross is simply raked directly from a furnace into a Tardis pot. Once inside Tardis the dross is hydraulically pressed and cooled. Tardis machines typically pay for themselves in less than a year – so our latest customer should benefit from this used Tardis extremely quickly. We have one more left – if anyone is interested!
There’s barely been an inch of room in the factory and it’s now looking a bit bare, with three other large systems also having left us this week. These machines included a triple catalytic converter unit destined for the States, a combined catalytic converter and opening system for the UK, and also for the UK, a large bespoke engine cracker with conveyors. And with them all gone we’ve time for a cup of tea, and a couple of hours to sweep the floor, before we start building all over again.
