The Tritech Group

The Tritech Group (2)

The Tritech Group is delighted to be participating at Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEi), which will take place 13–16th September 2011, at ExCeL in London. As the largest, global fully integrated defence and security exhibition, DSEi brings together the whole defence and security supply chain. The Tritech Group’s presence at the show will highlight just how the company is enabling clients in this sector by providing advanced manufacturing processes to support the demands of the industry.

The Tritech Group’s exhibit will showcase specific examples of the unrivalled high quality, complex investment castings in a range of materials that it supplies. However, this is not the full story, because at the Tritech Group this core discipline is supported by an exceptional in-house machining capability that allows the organization to offer finished machined castings — all from a single source.

Demonstrating progressive manufacturing capabilities the Tritech Group will introduce visitors to DESi to the very latest developments of the company’s proprietary EPIC process.  The Enhanced Property Investment Casting (EPIC) process itself is the culmination of many years of development at Tritech and combines a unique casting technique with the most advanced process engineering available. The result is consistently enhanced properties leading to lightweight, high strength components, which successfully meet — and exceed — the demands of many of today and tomorrow’s defence manufacturing applications. The EPIC aluminium casting process was developed by Tritech's technical and engineering experts and provides consistent, repeatable, computer-controlled solidification of parts. The critical factor within the process is the small dendrite arm spacing (DAS), which is achieved throughout the whole casting. This ensures fine and defect-free structures with superior mechanical properties over conventional casting methods and, crucially, CNC machining methods. The smaller DAS achieved with the EPIC process increases the local fatigue limit and improves crack propagation properties of the part. This means that designers who have traditionally used multi-piece assemblies, forged or machined from solid billet, now have an alternative option. The EPIC process will allow them to use high-strength, thin-wall investment castings in their designs with 100% confidence that they can use a casting factor of 1.0. The immediate benefits that can be gained include reduced costs and significantly lower overall weight without any compromise on structure or strength.  

Experienced Tritech staff will be available during DSEi to discuss the specific details of the EPIC process with any interested parties and to demonstrate how it can be applied to maximum effect within the defence and security industries.

As the Tritech Group continues to expand its reach following its acquisition by UDL earlier this year, DESi provides an excellent platform for the organization to fully demonstrate its exceptional manufacturing capabilities.

Expected to attract more than 25,000 visitors during the four-day show, DSEi is a critical event for anyone within the defence and security sector.

Founded in 1982 as a centre of excellence for providing investment casting products and services, today The Tritech Group has evolved into an organisation that provides comprehensive manufacturing capabilities for its clients from a single point of supply. Fully committed to providing quality products, The Tritech Group has ISO 9002 and AS 9100 approval as well as accreditation from NADCAP for NDT, TIG welding treatments, and heat treatments.

The Tritech Group enjoys an enviable position as one of the leading suppliers of aluminium and stainless steel investment castings within Europe. This is a direct result of the organisation’s unique value proposition whereby it offers its clients expertise with numerous materials for investment casting, with the ability to machine and finish the castings, without outsourcing.

Trusted by a host of clients with demanding requirements that have to meet exceptional quality standards, The Tritech Group continues to invest in the capabilities and the in-house resources to accommodate these needs.

In March 2011 Uni Deritend Limited (UDL), part of the Neterwala Group, acquired The Tritech Group. This acquisition will allow The Tritech Group to further expand its superior manufacturing solutions into new markets, backed by an extensive global support network.

The Tritech Group was recently acquired by Uni Deritend Limited (UDL), which is part of the Neterwala Group. The distinctive result of this acquisition is a two-way partnership that will focus on The Tritech Group expanding its superior manufacturing solutions into new markets backed by an extensive global support network.

The Tritech Group has continued to see steady growth over recent years, despite the general economic conditions that have seen a decline in many parallel industries. This is because the company is able to offer its clients an unrivalled service supplying high quality, complex investment castings in a range of materials; supported by an exceptional machining capability in order to be able to offer finished machined castings — all from a single source. Delivering on time, every time, Tritech has established a reputation within the Aerospace, Defence and related industries that is second to none. This is set to continue, with further growth now predicted at a faster rate — with absolutely no compromise on the service or quality that sets Tritech apart from its competitors.

The definitive alliance between Tritech and UDL is the result of great synergy between the two organizations, an asset that will be used to great effect over the next 12 months and beyond. UDL is a long-established investment-casting group that was set up in India in collaboration with the Deritend Company, a UK enterprise in 1977. Today, UDL manufactures a wide range of quality castings in ferrous alloys for the automotive and related industries. With a large emerging aerospace market in India, this new partnership will allow Tritech to take full advantage of this fact, while simultaneously meeting current customer requirements by incorporating a low-cost source into its existing portfolio with significant growth potential also in the UK.

The opportunities that this acquisition affords immediately and over the coming years are substantial, both to Tritech’s customers and to the group itself. The management structure at Tritech, which remains unchanged, is looking forward to maximizing these opportunities at every level.

Ian Walker, Managing Director of the Tritech Group, commented: “This is an extremely exciting and challenging phase for Tritech. The Group’s acquisition by UDL is a very positive move for both clients and personnel alike as we continue to improve and grow every aspect of the business. It is a compelling message and one that I am delighted to be able to share with new and existing clients who continue to reap the benefits that Tritech offers.”
