Typical metals and alloys produced are: Chrome-zirconium alloys and stainless steel as well as speciality bronzes.
Modern automatic sand and resin mixing plant provide constant good quality moulds irrespective of weather and other variables affecting high integrity mould surfaces.
General Engineering and Machining
The extensive heavy engineering facility houses the machine shop, comprising a range of lathes, horizontal and vertical boring mills, turret and deep-hole drilling machines, surface grinding, band saw and circular saw units, and drill sharpening equipment. Most equipment is CNC or DRO controlled with 4-axis capability and tables able to handle castings and other items up to 8 t.
A sophisticated CNC programming department develops 3D models from drawings supplied by engineers, which allow highly accurate interpretation of customers’ requirements.
The Fabrication, Refurbishment and Preassembly plant comprises welding and bending capabilities, where water-reticulation tubing made from Monel is fabricated into the most complex of coils and other coils, which eventually are incorporated within the copper castings. The Refurbishment section caters for the repair of castings returned to the
company to be refurbished for re-use in clients’ furnaces.
The Preassembly area is a high-precision floor where completed components are assembled and inspected by the customer and our inspectors, clearly marked and disassembled and packed for transport to the construction site. This process prevents any unnecessary delays due to components not fitting exactly in the designed position and packed in the logical order that the construction team requires them to be.
Delberg also supplies tubing and other engineered components to the petrochemicals and automotive industries.
