Casting Shop

Photographs of the Casting Shop at Innsworth Metals where the Shaw Process of casting was used.

Castings were produced from the patterns made on site by the Pattern Makermakers

Chemicals were also used in the plating of metals and waste chemicals were collected in a large effluent pit where they were neutralised.
