Hot metal

Spotted by chance, I came upon this video on YouTube today, and just had to share it with readers of the blog. It features the last large manufacturing employer in Brownhills, Castings PLC and it’s machining arm, CNC Speedwell. This prominent local company is a successful metal foundry and has a long history in the town. This is a fascinating wander round their manufacturing process, and a showcase of some rather captivating automation.

For once, it’s nice to see manufacturing fighting back…
