Hallam is installing two new volume melt furnaces for its high pressure casting foundry. The gas-fired units are highly energy efficient and will facilitate Hallam’s work with customers in developing bespoke aluminium and zinc alloys with tailored or enhanced mechanical properties for specific applications.

Operations manager Colin Woodruff commented; “The new furnaces will finally eliminate the need to melt ingot in smaller localised furnaces, which we still have a few of, and replace these with a comprehensive centralised melt facility. This is a key element of our energy use reduction programme and has many other operational and environmental benefits. It is an exciting development.”

Grant for this project was obtained with the support of the Business Growth Unit, City of Doncaster Council.
