The right mineral casting for any application - whether as light as 80 grammes or as heavy as 30 tonnes
For many years, mineral casting has represented an alternative to parts made from grey cast iron or steel and is currently the superior technology for a vast number of applications. Mineral casting delivers not only impressive technological, economic, and environmental benefits but also cost savings of up to 30 percent compared with steel, grey cast iron or iron castings. Its outstanding vibration damping, chemical resistance and thermal properties impress not only users in the machine tool industry, but also in the medical devices sector, the solar technology, electronics, and packaging industries, as well is in many other branches of industry.
