Moves Machines Worldwide
We produce castings in gray iron, ductilel iron and compacted graphite iron (CGI) from 100 to 1,000kg in small and medium series.
With our dedicated engineering team we are always open to develop projects in new markets
Our services for new projects include, among other things, professional consulting and support for casting design and the selection of the appropriate material. With our engineering team and our simulation capabilities with MAGMA SOFT (core shooting simulation, casting solidification stress simulation), we are ideally positioned for this. We also work with CREO and SolidWorks and can process all common 3D formats. In addition, we also offer machined castings with external partners.
Quality, Energy & Environment
The quality, environmental and energy awareness practiced in all areas of the Luitpoldhütte is also reflected in the ISO certificates.
