The right mineral casting for every application
Whether the load is 80 grams or 30 tons, SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik products offer unbeatable customer benefits. For many years, mineral casting, a "modern material", has represented an alternative to parts made from grey cast iron or steel and is nowadays the superior technology for a vast number of applications. Mineral casting has made new and innovative applications possible in electronics and in the medical devices sector. It is also the technology of the future - CO2 savings per ton of mineral casting are an incredible 1.4 tons of CO2 in comparison to grey cast iron/steel. This is testimony of our goals within our environmental agenda. SCHNEEBERGER Mineragusstechnik saved 15,000 tons of CO2 in 2018 – to the benefit of us all.
SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik is one of the world's leading manufacturers of mineral casting. It offers innovative and high-precision mineral casting solutions while also making significant contributions to the "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO) of completely pre-assembled modules and assembly groups made to customer specification. From our two locations in Europe (Cheb, Czech Republic) and in China (Changzhou), we serve a wide variety of markets and industries worldwide.
The latest alternative to conventional mineral casting is the UHPC-W material techcon® from SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik. It also features cold curing, with a special cement mixture (instead of epoxy resins), but has similar physical properties at significantly lower costs compared to mineral casting. Excellent for “second line" products – exchange tooling, support, etc. Mechanical processing can be done to a similar extent as mineral casting. With techcon® from SCHNEEBERGER there is now an economical alternative in the area of mineral casting materials for certain applications such as prototypes or small series.
