Products Supplied

Master Alloys

Our range of master alloys are used within several extreme engineering applications including aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines, commercial and military vehicles and medical implants

Forged Alloys

Like our range of master alloys our forged alloys have also been deployed within several extreme applications that include aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines, oil and gas and steam turbines. 

Revert Products

Our revert services include sorting, cutting, shot blasting and washing. The processed reverts we have supplied are used in master alloys and wrought alloys for the production of several demanding applications. 

Equipment Used

VIM Master Alloys

Consarc VIM 2500 kg with built in error prevention, safety systems, automatic melting programming, quality analysis systems and an intelligent operating system.
