The article reports that Ampco Metal Inc. is installing a new vertical billet caster in its Arlington Heights, Illinois, facility. The new caster replaces a horizontal casting line, and will give Ampco the capability to handle larger melts and cast larger diameter billets. Ampco is an international marketer of copper-based alloys. Now owned by Ampco Metal SA based in Switzerland, the company is working hard to recast itself as a leaner, more customer-focused supplier of custom engineered aluminum bronzes.
