In July Hallam took delivery of a second Frech DAK 350 cold chamber diecasting machine to increase the company’ mid-range casting capacity. Hallam now has four Frech cold chamber machines, all with online diagnostic links to Germany. In total the company runs 10 diecasting machines.

The new machine will run alongside Hallam’s existing DAK 350 to provide capacity and contingency. Hallam is also purchasing a second DMG Mori vertical machining centre to create additional machining capacity following the acquisition of the DAK 350.
