Polycast is a metal forming company with a specialist focus for investment casting. The skills, quality and technology that drive our business have developed over eighty years.

Our services cover every aspect that you may require: from 'as-cast' through to fully finished and assembled components; or from prototyping through to mass production. Specifically : for investment castings we can offer component weight capacity from 1.5g to 15Kg or a component volume of 400 cubic mm. We will always look at your needs beyond these capacities.

We produce highly finished investment cast products and offer skilled technical advice for your product needs. We offer a UK based manufacturing facility. And along with our Indian partners we can produce high-volume, high- quality castings and forgings, tailored for your unique budgetary and technical requirement.

Polycast serves many high-integrity industrial sectors: scientific; aerospace; nuclear; medical; industrial and marine fields are just some examples.

Complex shapes are produced quickly and efficiently and we can cater for a variety of different materials. This gives new freedom and greater scope for your designers.

Advice is available from our Engineering Teams in the UK and India for the suitability of a particular casting process that achieves the desired solution as originally envisaged by the customer.

1022m2 Polycast have recently invested in three new machines to enable us to produce castings more efficiently and driving up the quality of our services. These machines are : MODTECH WAX PRESS This machine offers greater control of temperature , greater control of the flow of wax and also process times are reduced helping us to achieve on-time deliveries. BELL SEMI-AUTOMATIC RISE AND FALL GRINDER This machine guarantees the consistency of grind / surface finishes; together with multiple loading fixtures that reduce process cycle times. BELL AUTOMATIC CUT OFF This machine reduces cost through a reduction in scrap. It also diminishes time of cutting the castings from the runner system; so again decreasing process times.
