Carlton Die Castings will showcase its new 500Ton Colosio High Pressure Die Casting machine at Subcon
As part of a recent £400,000 investment, Carlton Die Castings will showcase its new 500Ton Colosio High Pressure Die Casting machine at Subcon. Carlton’s second such machine in three years, the purchase will help increase capacity for existing customers as well as offering capacity for potential new contracts.
“The current range of die casting machines can make parts up to 8kg, however, the new machine will increase capacity for castings ranging from 1-4Kg where we currently see the greatest demand,” said a company spokesperson. “The machine has been installed and successfully commissioned and is already producing production parts.”
Carlton has also purchased an electric Krownmatic dosing furnace, which feeds directly into the die casting machine and removes the need for an auto-ladle, and a new Adiabatic Water to replace its existing water tower.
