Structures Capabilities

We have been producing direct squeeze cast (liquid metal forgings) products for the over 30 years, the process having initially been developed to produce military wheels for the Warrior AFV. Producing high-integrity, defect-free castings, the process has also been used to cast components such as piston heads, cylinder liners, brake callipers, missile cones and automotive suspension components.
