23 Oct New Supplier Member for CMF – Certech UK
Certech UK, part of Morgan Technical Ceramics, has become the latest supplier member of the Cast Metals Federation. Certech UK is the largest independent ceramic core and wax runner and pattern manufacturer for those producing challenging industrial casting applications all over the world.
The ceramic cores are used in investment casting and are suitable for casting by the equiaxed, directional solidification or single crystal process, using combinations of Silica, Alumina and Zircon – materials with very low coefficients of thermal expansion. The company’s wax capability can cater for a wide range of pattern and runner sizes.
Robert Park, General Manager of Certech UK said: “We recognise that being part of the Federation will provide us with new opportunities to engage with customers and potential customers through the regular meetings, as well as access to a range of reports and information.”
Welcoming Certech UK into membership, Pam Murrell said “The investment casting sector is growing and there are opportunities for increased sales in the aerospace and industrial markets but also growing demand in the healthcare, sports and automotive markets. The sector remains a very significant part of the UK casting industry, yet is faced with continuing challenges as end users place increasing demands on their suppliers and the materials they use. We are delighted to be able to welcome Certech UK as our newest supplier member. AS CMF members are active in all areas of the industry, we are well equipped to support every member company in a range of sectors and can help them expand their breadth of knowledge and network of contacts.”
