Casting technology

Good results and efficient production is our target. To implement this, we produce cast components on solid systems and with qualified employees who have many years of experience. This is how we set the framework for a high-quality casting technology, from moulding and core production to casting process.


Cast iron with lamellar graphite
(grey cast iron)

Eisenguss mit Lamellengraphit
  • high compressive strength
  • good gliding properties
  • cushions mechanical vibrations
  • high thermal conductivity
  • good castability

Cast iron with nodular graphite
(Spheroidal or ductile casting)

Werkstoff Eisenguss mit Kuppelgraphit
  • highly malleable
  • high tensile strength
  • good elongation at break
  • minimal notching effects
  • good machinability

  • Special alloys, for specific applications e.g. wear-resistant and heat-resistant materials as well, depending on requirements.

Spectrum of parts

Components with complicated cores, complex core packages and thin-walled cast components. Weight of components 0.1 kg to 200 kg. Quality assurance and an integrated production process are guaranteed by our own core production. Our cast products are used e.g. in environment technology, the commercial vehicle industry, gearbox and pump construction.

The base for a consistently casting quality is done in the meltshop. The demanding requirements made on our pig iron and iron scrap feedstock are proven by our incoming material checks. In connection with our modern induction furnaces equipped with automatic melting processors, we fulfil our factory requirements for top casting results.

Thanks to the combination of qualified employees and our moulding plants we can guarantee economic production processes. Our plant proves its value particularly with medium and large batch sizes. Automatic core setting allows us to increase process efficiency. The flexible casting pattern changeover system allows us to respond to short-term demands.

Casting process

The fully automatic and camera-monitored pouring equipment makes it possible to produce cast components with the best possible properties. Continuous temperature monitoring during the casting process results in a homogeneous structure of the components. We control the supply of the cast melts through the camera, whereby the adaption of gate and riser technology is of great importance. The components are cooled gradually on a long cooling track.

Core production

Our special strength is the production of thin-walled cast components with complex cores. For this to be successful, it is important that the cores set are a perfect fit – we can guarantee this through our own core production facility. The wide choice of methods we have at our disposal for core production allows us to cater to the requirements of the final product exactly. Short decision-making paths and cooperation between the departments in order to achieve the best possible result.
