Casting Development and Supply
MCPL produces alloyed grey cast iron castings up to 50kg per piece using 100% shell mould and core process catering customers' demands for high quality castings with close tolerances and accurate shapes. MCPL is mainly specialized in pressure tight thin-walled castings like cylinder heads, hydraulic valves, Lub-oil pumps, gear box housing etc.
MCPL utilizes the shell-moulding process to manufacture its moulds and cores. Shell moulding is a process for producing simple or complex near net shape castings, maintaining tight tolerances and a high degree of dimensional stability. Shell moulding is a method for making high quality castings. These qualities of precision can be obtained in a wider range of alloys and with greater flexibility in design than die-casting and at a lower cost than investment casting. Overall, the shell-moulding process provides customers with the best quality castings and the lowest total cost solution.
