After two years of planning, Palloys is set to move its Sydney casting facility to state-of-the-art premises in January.
Palloys Group managing director Andrew Cochineas said the company had made a “significant investment” in the new facility in Marrickville which will feature:
- the biggest and most technologically advanced casting facility in Australia being double the size of the current facility
- the latest in casting technology with vacuum, pressure and centrifugal casting machines including Australia’s premier platinum casting technology
- the newest and largest furnace capacity with computer controlled burnout cycles
- a new CAD Lab with client meeting rooms and design viewing stations
- expanded CAD printing capacity incorporating the latest in ResiWax printing technology ensuring the smoothest porosity free casts, even in Platinum
- a new jewellery finishing division offering polishing, plating and setting services
- new jewellery and design student training rooms
- a new ICP, AAS, XRF and Fire Assay analysis metallurgical laboratory to develop new alloys and ensure casting alloy purity
“Palloys has been preparing for this move for over two years,” he said.
“In 2010, we sent a team to the leading casting facilities in the UK and the USA to report on world’s best practice in casting and CAD/CAM.
“We’ve brought that best practice to Australia and welcome clients old and new to experience international standard quality and service at the new facility.”
In addition to the new facility in Marrickville, a newly expanded Sydney City Palloys office will be open to clients located at Level 5, 155 King Street (next door to AGS Metals & Regentco).
Apart for the physical address, which will be 8-10 Meeks Rd, Marrickville, all other contact and delivery details for Palloys will remain the same.
