Intercast UK have been supplying carbon stainless steel castings and
forgings since 2001. With over 35 years from within the Sheffield
foundry and metal forming industries it uses a proven overseas
supply route that is simple, repeatable and dependable. We offer an
extremely competitive solution for one off and continuous supply
projects. During our life we have developed into a one stop supplier
offering customers finished goods including final assembly, paint
Served industries include petrochemical, architectural, motor,
bespoke light and heavy engineering, railway and marine.
Testing can include material composition, mechanical at room and sub
zero. Corrosion resistance and fatigue testing compliment non
destructive testing to International accreditation. Dimensional
verification uses standard metrology equipment and can be supported
by utilising bespoke gauges designed and built for specific product.
Dynamic and static balancing is available for a few grams and to 20
tonnes for larger machined flywheels.
We readily offer help and advice during process selection. Where an
unknown presents itself we help our customer’s research, trial and
test. Rapid prototyping is available usually used before costly
commitments are made to complicated and expensive tooling.
Processes include sand
casting, carbon stainless steel castings, lost wax casting, lost
foam casting, pressure die casting, gravity die casting and vacuum
casting in steel, aluminium, zinc and non ferrous alloys. The
casting process is firstly selected to meet the casting designs’
final function and then best fitted to achieve least cost. Chemical
composition is controlled utilising fast analytical measurement to
Mechanical properties are achieved through heat treatment utilising
control of time, temperature and cooling rates. Environmental
controlled heat treatment furnaces include annealing, hardening,
tempering and carburising, with the addition of vacuum heat
treatment for super alloys.
Forging & Stamping
Able to cast billet to specification gives an added advantage to the
designer particularly for smaller batches or unusual compositions
offering open and closed die forging processes. Stamping of plate
section to 6mm.
Utilising our partners we are able to supply aluminium extrusion and
in T conditions and shipping lengths to 4 metres. A speciality is to
bend polished, stainless steel sheet over aluminium extrusions
producing architectural hand rail balustrade features. Cut lengths
are accurate to +/-0.5mm.
We offer CNC or conventional hand controlled utilising fixtures for
turning, milling, boring and precision grinding with a capability of
achieving tolerances to a few microns and capacities up to 3 meters
Galvanising lengths to 4 metres utilising hot dipping to 80 to 180
micron thicknesses typical. More ornate shapes are spun galvanised
to 40 microns and for even shapes sheradising is used to apply a
very smooth and accurate surface finish.
Additionally we can supply aluminium anodising, corrosion
preventative marine paint systems, stove enamelling, powder coating
and plastic polymer systems to RAL designated colour descriptions.
Please contact us at your earliest convenience, be it for informal
help and advice to a detailed quotation in advance of a cost
reduction in supply or development of a project in design.
