Hallam MD joins MAKE UK National Economic Policy Committee

Hallam MD Rob Pickersgill has been invited to join the MAKE UK National Economic Policy Committee formulating policy and advising central government on a range of economic issues affecting UK manufacturing. Meetings are held in London near Westminster, convenient for senior civil servants and senior politicians to attend.

Rob comments:

We’ve tried to draw attention to UK manufacturers’ current supply side problems, including energy, raw material and wages cost escalation, increased lead times even for basic supplies but also for essential equipment, and worries about climate change, energy sources and carbon taxes. So far I have to say that we have not been able to draw much comfort from the responses we have had, but we will persist.”


Additional diecasting machine for Hallam

Hallam has acquired a Frech DAK 580 diecasting machine from Germany to further enhance an impressive array of diecasting equipment. The foundry division now has the capability of manufacturing an even wider range of aluminium castings, by weight and complexity. As a guide, the new machine can make castings weighing up to 8kg and 60cm in diameter, and is the largest machine in the Hallam’s portfolio, which now includes a total of 6 Frech machines ranging from 210 to 580 tons locking force.


Hallam Offers State of-the-art architectural powder coating system

Independent trials have confirmed that Hallam can now offer market leading powder coating with powders that have significantly longer gloss retention and resistance to colour change combined with maximum film integrity to ensure long term cosmetic and functional protection.

The trials were undertaken in accordance with ISO 4892-3 and ASTM G154 by an independent professional testing house and simulated 10 years exposure to Caribbean sunshine. The test report conclusions were that “the exposure to UV radiation had no noticeable effects on the colouring or surface finish of the components”.

Products powder coated using the system are now available commercially from Hallam. Please contact Rob Pickersgill, 07720591991 anytime, for full details.
