Foundry Service Centre - Lahore

Small and Medium Enterprises Development Authority (SMEDA), in collaboration with University of Engineering & Technology (UET) and Pakistan Foundry Association (PFA), has established Foundry Service Centre (FSC) for providing training services as well as undertaking applied research for the development and production of prototype castings for foundry industry. The project is being funded by Government of Pakistan and the land for the project has been provided by UET, Lahore.

FSC facilitates in addressing the issue of acute shortage of trained and qualified workforce, lack of designing, simulation, testing and prototype development because in the absence of these facilities casting and pattern design totally rely on the trial and error experimentation method leading to high wastages before final product. This centre helps to increase awareness in production as well as different manufacturing routes in local foundry industry so as to compete in international market.

The center is designed specifically as a common facility center to provide impetus towards the development and growth of the foundry sector. It offers a wide range of services including the following at nominal rates to the industry:

·    Design and Casting Simulation Services
·    Computerized Patternmaking
·    Conventional Machining
·    Prototype Production
·    Materials Testing & Inspection
·    Casting Crack Detection
·    Sand Testing
·    Physical Testing
·    Chemical Analysis
·    Metallographic Testing
·    Consultancy Services
·    Floor shop level/ Industrial visit
