The operation of the foundry is ensured by a well-trained and experienced team of technicians, engineers and machine operators. The growing quality demands and expectations require continuous professional advancement and technological development. Our company has an apprenticeship system, whereby both university and vocational students are provided with professional training. Together with these bright and promising apprentices, we develop and test new tools and technologies that are to be introduced in practice. We have achieved significant results with the use of cold chambers and annular pistons, the improvement of the tool venting system, and the minimisation of tool handling. We develop, manufacture and utilise single-purpose appliances to achieve greater efficiency and readiness; custom saws, milling machines, deburring machines and reamers assist in production.
We apply various material testing equipment and methods to meet customer expectations. The composition of the melt is analysed by a spectrometer, the gas content is checked by a density index measurement,
and the inclusion content is measured by a K-Mold test. We monitor the heat balance of the tools with thermal imaging, and the porosity testing of the products is conducted with RTG/CT installations, along with abrasion tests and microscopic image evaluations.
The surface preparation of the foundry operates with a 30-person workforce, equipped with advanced surface treatment tools. According to the customers’ needs, we employ ceramic stone abrasions and Cr sand blasting. Once the surface treatment is completed, the inspections and packaging are concluded at the same location. During the course of abrasion, we use Rösler’scontinuous abrasion machines with various stone sizes, and Trowal’s circular vibrators of a variety of sizes with rinsing and drying functions. Sand blasting is also available in various grain sizes upon request. For a meticulous finish, we utilise Rösler’s continuous wire-strap, hook and rubber-strap blasting machines and custom-made ABRAVIZ equipment.
