As you may have noticed some of our white metal cast items have been out of stock for a while, this is due to a problem with our very elderly spin casting machine. It seems ok with big chunky castings but not so good with smaller more intricate parts, to the extent that to get, say 10 sets of castings, the machine has to be spun sometimes double that. Not a very efficient use of time. To combat this problem we are going to out source some white metal casting and the first batch of moulds was despatched today.
If this proves to be a workable alternative it means that not only can we keep some very popular items in stock but it will also mean more time here at Trenarren Towers to get back to developing some new products.
