Billet stacked and ready for shipment at Aluminicaste, Guanajuato State, Mexico.
The February 2014 issue of Light Metal Age features an article on the new aluminum greenfield remelt facility located in Guanajuato State, Mexico. Aluminicaste is close to full production capacity, producing primarily extrusion billet, but also capable of manufacturing world class rolling ingot and forging/large press billet, in both hard and soft alloys on their two DC casting lines. This product mix and the ability to cast both hard and soft alloys make the Aluminicaste plant unique in the flexibility of products it can produce.
This article, which Aluminicaste has made this article available as a free download via its website, describes the concepts of the location, plant configuration, and market focus for what has been completed in this initial phase, as well as the expansion potential that will take the plant from the largest remelt in Mexico to being one of the largest operations of its kind on the entire North America continent.
