Armada Metal implements a type of squeeze casting method. The process starts when the molten metal is poured into the bottom half of a pre-heated die. As soon as the metal starts solidifying, the upper half of the die closes and starts applying pressure during the solidification process. The high pressure and the close contact of molten alloy with the metal die surface results in minimum porosity, improvised mechanical properties. excellent part accuracy and surface finish.
Armada Metal currently has 6 press machines enabling approxiamtely 15,000 pieces capacity per week. Casting moulds are produced in house based on customer requirements. Main casting products of Armada Metal are pot and pan bodies.
