    Continuous casting

Marginal Column

Continuous casting is achievable and ideal for mass and automatic production processes in economical, theoretically unlimited, lengths.

Decades of experience in the production of continuous mould casting provides the basis for the high quality standard of our continuous castings. The extruded grey and nodular cast iron materials feature a fine-grain, dense texture and excellent machining properties and their production process makes them absolutely ideal for mass production.

In addition to round bars and square bars we supply sections to order, with a raw or pre-machined finish. All standard dimensions of round and square material can be supplied with a raw finish from stock.
