Industrial Applications

We Support Industry with A Passion for Lightweight Design

Our lightweight parts are used in industrial applications as well as in durable consumer goods, in very large off-road vehicles, or in wind turbines. If the entire component weighs almost a ton, lightweight design takes on a whole new meaning. But for us and our customers, every kilo counts in these cast components. Because if it weighs less, it takes less energy to move.
