Matt Cast Supplies has been in operation since 1999 and has grown considerably over the years producing a wide range of castings using the no-bake resin system for the manufacturing of pump, wear part, mining, rail, valves and castings for the general engineering industries.
Matt Cast Supplies was established manufacturing brass sundials and cast iron, chrome iron and stainless steel pump and valve components. Rapid growth of the company, and with limited space to expand, necessitated a move. The company bought larger premises in Germiston South, Gauteng where it relocated to in April 2003 and still operates from this facility.
Matt Cast Supplies is a jobbing foundry casting a range of materials, ranging from 1kg to 900kg. Box sizes vary up to 1 800mm. Although it focuses on special materials for the pump and valve industry, it casts components for a variety of industries. These include castings for wear and grinding parts as well as gears, bushes, liners and a vast range of engineering components, including the rail industry.
The foundry has 1 800m² under roof and is based on a 3 300m² site and employs more than forty people.
All castings are made in sand moulds using the no-bake resin system and the furnaces include a 350kW 500kg induction melter and a 200kW 250kg induction melter. The two no-bake moulding lines are supported by a core shop with core shooters and a comprehensive fettling shop. The company has also recently invested in a Endeco Omega Spartan 3 PLC controlled continuous sand mixer. The Spartan 3 is a six-ton per hour mixer and comes equipped with an auto blender, giving four catalyst options and two sand selection options. This allows Matt Cast Supplies to automatically adjust sand temperatures, resin and catalyst input amounts.
Metals cast include 27% chrome iron, cast iron, cast steel and special steels, SG iron, stainless steel, special alloys and many more material types to suit their customers’ needs.
Matt Cast Supplies also have a Belec 3000s spectrometer to ensure that all materials are analysed and certification can be given for each melt. Their in-house heat treatment facility compliments the foundry enabling quick turnaround times.”
In 2017 Matt Cast Supplies was accredited with the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system, affirming that the company’s Germiston, Gauteng operation adheres to the internationally recognised standard for the quality system. This has now been subsequently upgraded to ISO 9001:2015. The foundry can cast to various BS, ASTM, DIN and other specifications and has an inhouse metallurgist to certify your products and issue certificates.
