Sand casting


With our automatic and semi-automatic forming machines, we produce small to medium batch sizes in high quality. We use Coldbox or Croning cores depending on the geometry, batch size, and required core stability. High-quality patterns, in particular from plastics, ensure dimensional accuracy and a consistent quality.
