Hitchiner’s exclusive countergravity casting techniques, pioneered in the 1970s, are generally considered to be one of the most significant advancements in casting technology. Since its initial development, the basic countergravity casting process has been refined, automated and enhanced with numerous technologies that make it now unrivaled in the industry
