Chamberlin & Hill operates one of the largest cupola melting facilities within the UK.

Our four short-campaign cupolas are capable of melting up to
tonnes per hour, continually feeding our three disamatic production lines.

One of the oldest methods of producing cast iron, cupola furnaces have stood the test of time due to their ability to produce large amounts of iron effectively, accurately and affordably making them ideal for serving the metal demands of Disa moulding machines in a high-volume manufacturing facility.


Chamberlin and Hill specialises in the manufacture of grey (flake) cast iron and is capable of producing all grades to the European standard:

  • EN 1561
  • EN-GJL-150
  • EN-GJL-200
  • EN-GJL-250
  • EN-GJL-300
  • EN-GJL-350


The vertical, green sand Disa Castings moulding process offers the speed, efficiency, quality, reliability and versatility required in manufacturing castings for medium to high volume production. Each of Chamberlin & Hills three vertically moulded DISA Castings production lines is equipped with automatic core loaders and are capable of producing a mould every 15 seconds. This cost-efficient method of manufacture allows Chamberlin & Hill to provide high-quality components at competitive prices.


As the leading UK Cast Iron foundry, we have been manufacturing castings on site for over 125 years. During that time we have produced castings for a variety of different markets in many countries.
