Facility Details

The world class facilities of KFIL plants have further advantages over its peers. The KW line integrated with Loramendi core shooters are operated by robots is completely automated with minimal manual intervention and considerable rejection rate. Further, KFIL secures volume requirements with consistent casting weight and dimensions which translate into consistent dimensional performance in machine shop both in terms of mould and core side. The primary setup include the entire gamut of the foundry process flow from Melting, Core Making, Moulding, Pouring, Knock Out, Decoring, Shot Blasting, Fettling, Painting, Averaging and Packing.
