Amerway Inc. has boosted its production capabilities with the installation of a new ‘Continuous Casting’ machine at the company’s Beale Avenue manufacturing facility in Altoona, Pennsylvania. The new machine, with its innovative circular ‘casting wheel’ design, speeds up production capabilities for Amerway solder bar and wire products.
In making the announcement, Terry Buck, president, said, “We’re pleased to have this new capability up and running in-house now, because it improves lead times for all orders, especially large orders. It can generate on average 2,000 lbs. an hour of alloy products, depending on the alloy, and of course that means lead-free. Its design prevents cross-contamination of alloys so that our customers not only receive their products fast and on time, but they can also be assured of its absolute purity.”
Tim Brown, Sales Manager, added that “This machine utilizes a single-cast operation, reducing the cost of manufacturing and that includes labor and press expenses. Its greater capability frees up press time for other products, and thereby reduces lead times across the board for all Amerway products.”
