Facts & Figures

Our Key Products

Consulting and Planning

A full team of engineers and specialists such as metallurgists, mechanical engineers, quality engineers, process specialists, project managers are collaborating with our customers in order to optimize part design from the early development stage on.

Ceramics

High-performance ceramic granulate feedstocks for Hi Silica or Silica Zircon core types with different particle size distribution and excellent high temperature stability. We produce both serpentine cores for blades and vanes and solid cores for big structural parts.

Precision Casting

Industrial manufacturing technology based on the so called lost-wax process used in the aerospace and energy industry to produce turbine blades and structural parts with complex shapes and cooling systems. Preferred alloys depend on the application: Superalloys, high strength steel or nickel respectively cobalt based alloys.
