Production of grey and modular cast iron castings

In the past ten years, the Company has completely modernized the production process of castings and moulding equipment. In 2001, we introduced a new automated moulding linefollowed by equipment for regeneration of foundry sand mixtures. The Foundry invests into new technology every year to ensure its ability to flexibly respond to the requirements of the clients. The latest large investment was the construction of a new medium-frequency melting shop that was built in August 2013.



Castings are mainly manufactured for the following industries:



Gear producers


Machine tools and moulding machines


Automobile industry


Agricultural machines


Producers of pumps, pipelines and fittings


Textile machines


Shipping industry


Producers of glass moulds


Other industries

Castings are made of the following materials:


  • Grey cast iron (GG15 – GG35)
  • Modular cast iron (GGG40 – GGG60)

Interesting facts:


  • The heaviest cast – a frame for the MCU 3000 machine from grey cast iron with the weight of 13,216 kg, May and December 2011
  • The use of the polystyrene combustible model for a casting with the weight of 7,200 kg, May 2013
  • The employee with the most years of service – 49 years, Jiří Drbal
  • The “New Foundry” celebrated its 50th anniversary of casting production in May 2013


The total annual capacity of the Foundry is 12,000 tonnes of grey and modular cast iron with a weight range per one casting from 2 kg to 13,000 kg.
