Event Details

Established in 1983, LCL Pty Ltd is one of Australia’s largest producers of high quality copper-based alloys. From the manufacturing facility located in Melbourne Australia, LCL supply quality Australian made bronze brass copper alloys product to manufacturers across the globe in a wide cross section of industries.

LCL manufacturing facilities are designed to process new and recycled nonferrous materials to produce a wide range of alloys into bar suitable for further processing by our customers, for example, hot or cold working, and machining. LCL processes include careful selection of raw materials for melting and alloying.

Our products are manufactured using a continuous casting method and are then machined and straightened through a finishing section, which also includes heat treatment, tempering and cold working to whatever specification is required by our customer. Metal analysis is carried out using on-site X-ray or Optical Emission Spectrometry, as well as a wet lab for dezincification and material property testing.

Our continuous casting technology is based on and in conjunction with that developed by Rautomead Limited and Sacomet Limited both of Dundee Scotland and where precise metallurgical conditions allow a very wide range of copper alloys to be produced.

The major part of LCL production is in rod form, which range in diameter from 12mm to 115mm. However, rectangles, crescents, squares, flats, sections and hollows are also produced to customer specifications and special order.

LCL is committed to maintaining our position as an industry leading and globally competitive manufacturer by continuously striving to meet and exceed customer expectations, providing products of the highest quality delivered on time and in full. LCL also work extensively to ensure ongoing global competitiveness through research and development and driving continuous improvement in all aspects of our business.
