Production of grey and modular cast iron castings

In the past ten years, the Company has completely modernized the production process of castings and moulding equipment. In 2001, we introduced a new automated moulding linefollowed by equipment for regeneration of foundry sand mixtures. The Foundry invests into new technology every year to ensure its ability to flexibly respond to the requirements of the clients. The latest large investment was the construction of a new medium-frequency melting shop that was built in August 2013.
