SOLUTIONS FOR THE BEST – BEST IN CLASS PERFORMANCE BY KURTZ
Kurtz GmbH is a member of the Kurtz Ersa Corporation, an owner-managed, internationally active group of technology and supplier companies with a corporate history of more than 240 years and production plants in Germany, China and the USA. Since 1983, Kurtz GmbH has been producing foundry machines. We enjoy an excellent reputation as expert in low-pressure and gravity casting machines as well as for trimming presses.
Highest casting quality, high output and low costs
In the field of low-pressure casting Kurtz provides low-pressure casting machines which are operated with permanent moulds/dies and casting machines for sand-, plaster- or ceramic moulds – so called "lost moulds". Both aluminum and magnesium alloys can be cast with a Kurtz low-pressure casting machine. The casting machine portfolio is complemented by tiltable gravity and gravity casting machines.
Superior technology for future-proof trimming
The machine concept of Kurtz trimming presses includes the Kurtz KP"C" line of so called C-frame presses, the Kurtz KP"S" line as 4-column version available with or without sliding-tilting-table and the KP"R" line executed as frame design. You can be sure to have safe, efficient and reproducible trimming processes due to the perfect interaction of fast hydraulics, precise mechanics, reliable measuring systems and comfortable machine control. Press force ranges from 50 t to 300 t, subject to model and layout.
Stay flexible with savvy options
A wide range of peripheral equipment and accessories allows to adapt the Kurtz trimming press to optimally meet individual requirements. By adding machining stations such as sawing, drilling and milling stations you will finally obtain a part which is near ready to be installed. Kurtz does not only offer the trimming press, however. We also provide complete trimming cells including automation and robot, cooling ponds and cooling racks, parts inspection and logistics.
In the thick of the process – from A to Z
Kurtz always focuses on the entire process. We already think of an optimized mould parting line for efficient trimming when designing and developing a casting mould or machine. If requested, both casting machines and trimming presses are available as fully automated systems. All components and modules are optimally matched to one another. At Kurtz' the customer obtains planning, engineering, process and mould technology, melting and furnace technology, automation, peripherals as well as complete casting lines. Kurtz foundry machines stand out by their technological lead,
