Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Copper foundry. Image 2 of 3. Workers at a copper foundry using an electric hoist to lower a crucible of molten copper from a furnace (behind crucible) into a cradle. They will use the cradle to pour the molten copper into moulds in the sand-filled barrels seen in the foreground. The copper will set in the shape of the mould, a process known as casting. Copper is a chemical element and a metal, with a melting point of 1084 degrees Celsius. Copper is an easily worked metal that is used extensively in industry, in metal statues, and in alloys. Photographed in the UK. See images T810/256-258 for a sequence showing work in a copper foundry.
