Foundry engineering

Foundry engineering of the plant produces the castings as serial and small-lot production, individual and unique castings, single-unit products moulded of carbon steel, structural and low-alloy steels. Production has been certified by Lloyd's Insurance Company (Great Britain).

Following moulding technique is used to manufacture castings:

  • Machine conveyer moulding with quick-drying mixture is utilized in ser-ial production,
  • Machine moulding with lean-glass self-hardening mixtures is prac-tised to make big-size castings in small-lot and single-unit production.

Castings of grey cast-iron arе manufactured at our foundry too They have been also certified by Lloyd's Insurance Company (Great Britain). Following moulding technique is practised to manufacture castings: Machine conveyer moulding with quick-drying mixture is utilized in serial production, machine moulding with lean-glass self-hardening mixtures is used to manufacture big-size castings in small-lot and single-unit production, hand moulding with quick-drying mixtures is practised to manufacture medium-size and small-size castings in small-lot produc-tion and single-unit manufacture.

The foundry produces castings of non-ferrous metals as well (bronze and brass alloys).

Following technique is used for that purpose:

  • Centrifugal castings in large-lot production,
  • Machine moulding with lean-glass self-hardening mixtures to manu-facture big-size castings in small-lot and single-unit production,
  • Hand moulding with quick-drying mixtures is practised to manufacture medium-size and small-size castings in serial and small-lot production,
  • Machine moulding with quick-drying mixtures is used to manufacture medium-size and small-size castings of serial production.

Steel is smelted in electric-arc furnaces, cast iron castings are made in electric arc furnaces, induction castings of bronze and brass alloys are produced in induction furnaces, and all this allows to obtain high-quality metal and cast iron in a wide range with low content of noxious sub-stances. The modern control equipment permits to carry out the step-by-step checking of the castings quality, including monitoring of melting operations and inspection of the finished products quality.
