VEEM Ltd operates one of the largest non-ferrous and ferrous foundry facilities in Australia.
A foundry is a factory that creates castings of various metal objects. Metals are melted down, poured into a mould, and left to cool and solidify. All kinds of metals can be used, the most common being aluminium and cast iron.
Foundries make a wide variety of objects, ranging from jewellery, doors, cabinet hardware, and skillets to larger items such as bells, machinery parts and sculptures. There are two types of foundry; ferrous and non-ferrous metal foundries. Put simply, a ferrous metal contains iron, whereas a non-ferrous does not.
The type of metal used for casting is determined by functionality. Aluminium, for example is used for casting automotive parts due to its light weight. Cast iron, on the other hand, is used in casting cookware as it is heavier and can withstand higher temperatures.
