The right mineral casting for every application

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.
