Facts & figures
Since 1995, GF Casting Solutions runs the foundry that is home to Europe’s largest moulding box for machine-moulded iron castings. However, the foundry was founded in 1887 as Meier & Weichelt company. Nowadays, there are about 255 employees producing large and heavy castings components with a production capacity of 60,000 tons/ year.
Casting is diverse. High degree of design freedom, material know-how or diversity in geometries: the right material selection, combined with the optimal design and the appropriate manufacturing process, leads to the best results.
We substitute components that are forged, joined or cast and made of steel. Therefore, we do not only optimize the component's characteristics, but also the component's weight.
With CMM, non-destructive measurement processes and chemical analysis we make sure, that our components fit every quality standards.
