FOUNDRY & MACHINE SHOP

CASTING

DYN-Metal Ltd operates all works activities from its North West London works in North Acton. We provide a complete solution from designing, casting, machining and finish machining. Our foundry operates a 16 hour split shift in order to maximize production and cope with ongoing demand. Whilst we operate under an organized and controlled schedule, our flexibility in changing casting production often within hours is what allows us to respond in the quickest possible time to breakdown situations. In addition to our vast continuous cast stock production, we also have the facility to centrifugally cast a wide spectrum of bronze alloys and sizes. As recently as July 2015, we have added a Gibson Alpha Gyra 2 to our existing works plant to further bolster our centrifugal casting capacity. We offer a centrifugal casting service depending on requirements and are able to respond with urgency in order to cast and manufacture materials for breakdown situations within 24 hours.

PROOF MACHINING

Since DYN-Metal holds a vast range of centrifugal stock in various alloys and sizes, stock castings that require proof machining can very often be turned around within hours. Breakdown situations that require custom sizes that can be taken from stock castings can result in being turned around on the same day at no extra cost. Our flexibility and response to urgent enquiries is something we pride ourselves on.

FINISH MACHINING

DYN-Metal LTD also boasts a fully equipped CNC machine shop containing Yamazaki MAZAK and DMG Mori Seiki CNC machines. Our workload is such that we have been able to add a brand new CNC machine every year to increase capacity. We have capacity to turn up to 1.8m in diameter and to machine pieces weighing up to 5 tonnes. See our plant list for a full run down on our CNC Machines.

CONTROL & QUALITY

DYN-Metal has operated an ISO 9001 quality management system since 1990. Due to the critical nature of fitment of customers' components, we use a Wenzel XO87 as well as our Aberlink CMM Axiom Too for measuring of all critical dimensions and tolerances on all finished machined pieces.
