W H Rowe offers a complete service to all sectors of manufacturing industry in the production and supply of aluminium sand and gravity die castings, extending from castings only through to fully finished and tested parts or assemblies.

General

All casting related operations are carried out at our Bond Street site, a self contained, purpose-built foundry unit. Included are a SAND foundry and a GRAVITY DIE foundry, each carrying out different casting and process methods. Supporting these departments are Fettling/Trimming shop, Tool Room, Heat Treatment plant and a team of Quality Assurance personnel

Non destructive testing is carried out on Real Time X-ray equipment and by Dye Penetrant crack detection methods. Routine Hardness and Tensile testing/reporting is also carried out

Castings requiring machining, finishing and further testing are transferred to the Engineering Division at our Quayside Road site

Machining operations are carried out on CNC lathes and machining centres, on conventional machine tools and on special purpose designed and built equipment often organised within cellular manufacturing units. Pressure testing, hydraulic testing, vacuum testing and leak detection facilities are also available, as is certification if required. We specialise in producing internally sound castings. More than 70 % of castings produced are leak or pressure tested

Finishing processes include pre-treatments such as hot water degreasing, shot blasting, acid etch priming and final treatments such as Epoxy and Polyester Electrostatic powder coating

Approvals

The company holds LRQA approval for Quality Management Systems to BS EN ISO 9001:2000. Approval Certificate No: 881762.
