Casting

The departments within casting are core-making, die-casting, cutting/ de-coring and casting control. Our core-making department works according to the hot box process and includes a modern fully-automatic machine and a semi-automatic machine for strip. The core-shooting machines are fed by a fully automatic core sand mixing and distribution system. When required we face the cores to withstand thermal stress.

 

Die-casting is divided into low pressure and gravity casting. Our castings are decored in our fully automatic Wheelaborator blasting machine.To speed up the decomposition of the core we have the option of heating the castings in two heating chambers. After this the gates and the sink heads are removed in the cutting plant and then returned to the melting process.

 

Our casting control checks the parts for optical defects and then forwards them for further processing.
