Looking Back On 2023's Global Foundry Review Meeting

Between the 19th and 21st June the MAT Foundry Group hosted its first post pandemic Global Foundry Review meeting where Plant Managers from all 7 MFG foundries meet at The Nici hotel in Bournemouth UK.

During these meetings the Plant Managers presented on a host of topics including:

Product Innovation

Such as the implementation of Automated Machining line for Bi-Metallic Discs

Process Improvement

All facilities presented the hard work they do to remain competitive through process improvement, projects include replacing water based cooling towers with adiabatic or increasing furnace lining life etc.


Biggest Challenges

Such as recruitment and knowledge within the industry especially in equipment maintenance.

Industry 4.0

The MAT Foundry Group central support team presented on the latest developments within Industry 4.0 including the development of Norican’s Monitizer Discover at Eurac Poole and the powerful live data it displays or the virtual training that can be provided by ABP.


Which was a hot topic of conversation across the three days, with detailed discussions on how we measure our carbon footprint, our commitment to carbon reduction and pending commitment to Science Based Targets. The sand reclamation project at Eurac Poole was also reviewed in detail including a plant too of the facility as this project can reduce the use of virgin materials such as sand, resin and catalyst whilst also reducing waste disposal and transport emissions to and from the site.


At MFG we firmly believe in using our experience across 7 foundries globally to share information and ideas to improve all facilities and this event work fantastically to build relationships and share our experiences and ideas.
