Tableware foundry sifts out defects
A foundry installs a centrifugal sifter that removes contaminant materials from casting sand to reduce casting defects.
Wilton Armetale, a foundry in Mount Joy, Pa., manufactures tableware using Armetale, a proprietary nonferrous metal blended from 10 alloys. Armetale resists chips, breaks, cracks, or dents and has insulating properties, making it useful for Wilton's tableware line, including plates, mugs, goblets, pitchers, platters, sconces, and other accessories. Wilton also has an Engineered Products Division that casts, finishes, and polishes short runs of products for such industries as baking, furniture, plumbing lighting, and power tools.
