Shamrock Engineering Co.

The Company

Shamrock Engineering Co. is the world's leading manufacturer of automatic ladling equipment for aluminum foundries.

The company was founded over 20 years ago and initially served the diecast industry exclusively.

In 1988, Shamrock joined forces with Inductotherm and began an intense R&D program to service the foundry industry as well as the diecast industry.

Shamrock Engineering offers the broadest range of automatic ladlers available anywhere. Our Die Casting Ladlers are routinely used for pouring from 4 oz to over 100 lb. Our larger foundry ladlers can be built to meet virtually any requirement.

The largest currently in operation is capable of pouring up to 250 lb anywhere on a 10-foot radius while servicing five mold positions from either of two furnaces.

New Developments

Now Shamrock features a new programmable multispeed pouring system available on our L, HD and XD series ladlers. This feature was previously only available on our larger and more sophisticated FJ and EFJ machines. This system provides three separate velocity and time variables that precisely control the pouring action of the ladler.

Using these variables, it is possible to create complex pouring profiles to improve both mold pouring performances and cycle times.
