GMT PLANT III - FOUNDRY DIVISION
 
our foundry

Foundry Division : After four decades in operation, Guindy Machine Tools Ltd., Chennai, (GMT), needs no introduction to the Indian manufacturing industry particularly to the machine tools, automotive, aeronautics, earth moving, defence production units and other general engineering tool rooms and machine shops.

We established a foundry in 1979 to meet our in-house casting requirements. Castings for GMT products like Surface Plates, Large Sized Bed Plates, Joint Plates, Angle Plates, Box Angle Plates, Straight Edges, etc., supplied to a number of major units to meet their inspection and standards room needs are also manufactured in this foundry.

To meet the growing requirement of quality CI Castings, we have recently established a foundry facility in SIPCOT complex - Hosur, Tamil Nadu. Spread over 30,000 sq.ft., the outstanding facilities at the foundry consists of new furnaces with auxiliary facilities such as Spectrometer and Test Laboratory. Our machine shop is located in a 10,000 sq.ft. facility.

Products: We have acquired expertise over 25 years, in the manufacture of Grey Iron Castings of IS210-1978 specification. Grades normally poured are FG - 150, FG - 200, FG - 220, FG - 260, FG - 300, FG - 350 as required for various applications. We also produce S.G.Iron Castings ranging from 3 kgs to 750 kgs of IS 1865-1974 specification. Grades normally poured are SG - 400/12, SG - 450/10, SG - 500/7, SG - 600/3. We have sucessfully produced vermicular castings to cater to the needs of the windmill and automotive industry.

Vermicular Cast Iron : This type of cast iron is characterized by its graphite’s form. The vermicular cast iron presents graphite in the shape of a bar, which gives it mechanical characteristics between the lamellate graphite cast and the spheroïdal graphit cast. The vermicular cast iron is obtained by metallurgical treatment of the alloy.
