Services

Lößnitz cast iron products in use

Whether in mechanical engineering, plant engineering or toolmaking, the products of our foundry are characterized by exceptional quality and maximum precision.

Together with our services, we thus offer our customers sustainable added value for more safety and shorter response times in the production process. And, of course, for more success in a challenging competitive environment.

Individual consulting for sustainable solutions

Since the production of castings is a highly complex process, qualified consulting is of course also essential. Only through it can individual and sustainable solutions be realized.

As each product has to meet specific requirements for different applications, each product also has specific requirements for the production and finishing process as well as for the choice of materials.

Our qualified employees work closely with you to determine the quality criteria of the desired component, develop the design and select the materials as well as the finishing and further processing processes precisely for your project.

Talk to us about it! Our competent staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have on the subject of planning and consulting.

Model construction

We produce polystyrene models for full mold casting in the highest quality.

The cornerstone of a good casting is in the hands of the pattern maker.

The employees of our pattern shop have the know-how to create your desired casting according to your drawings or according to your 3D CAD data set by means of modern CNC milling technology. Due to the long experience of our employees, all casting requirements and their parameters are taken into account and constantly checked during the manufacturing process.

Materials

grey cast iron (EN-GJL)

iron-carbon-silicon alloy

G= Cast iron J= Iron L= Lamellar graphite

Grey cast iron is the industrial name for cast iron with lamellar cast iron. The carbon precipitates during solidification in the form of graphite fins. The traditional name "grey cast iron" comes from the greyish appearance of the fracture surface of the casting. This is the most frequently used iron-carbon alloy as it has a very high wear resistance, excellent castability and good machinability by means of cutting processes. Furthermore, grey cast iron has a very low inclination to blowholes. All grey cast iron alloys are manufactured strictly in accordance with DIN EN 1561.

Lößnitz Foundry offers you the following grey cast iron alloys:

  • Materials:
    EN-GJL-200 EN-GJL-250 EN-GJL-300
  • According to DIN EN 1561 / Hardening plants GL Lößnitz
  • Weight per unit:
    from 250 kg - 18.500 kg

ductile cast iron (EN-GJS)

iron-carbon-silicon alloy

G= Cast iron J= Iron S= Nodular graphite

Ductile cast iron is the industrial name for cast iron with spheroidal cast iron, in which carbon is precipitated in the form of graphite balls during solidification. GJS can be regarded as a steel-like material and is characterised by its high elongation and tensile strength. Through targeted alloying, good temperature and corrosion resistance as well as higher wear resistance can be achieved. All spheroidal graphite cast iron alloys are manufactured strictly in accordance with DIN EN 1563.

Lößnitz Foundry offers you the following spheroidal graphite cast iron alloys: Table

  • Materials:
    EN-GJS-400-15 EN-GJS-500-7 EN-GJS-600-3 EN-GJS-700-2 EN-GJS-HB230 EN-GJS-HB265
  • According to DIN EN 1563 / Hardening plants GL Lößnitz
  • Weight per unit:
    from 250 kg – 15.000kg

Perfection is what counts for us

After the casting process and the solidification of the cast part, numerous further processing steps are necessary in order to be able to supply you with your finished component. These depend entirely on your objectives, which the finished workpiece should fulfil.

In our foundry we offer the following technical processes for post-treatment of cast products:

  • radiancy

  • priming and painting

We will be happy to explain which post-treatment process is necessary and suitable for your casting material in a detailed discussion with you.
