Foundry technologies

By casting, highly complex parts can be produced, whose biggest users is the automotive industry. Such moulded parts include cylinder heads, engine blocks, chassis parts and turbochargers. The different casting technologies (gravity casting, low pressure casting, die casting, precision casting) differ greatly in terms of production costs, size and weight of castable products, surface quality and minimum castable wall thickness. In Hungary, only the University of Miskolc has the conditions for accredited in-service training and only the University of Miskolc has a foundry competence centre that includes all foundry sectors. The competencies of the foundry technology laboratory include all foundry technologies that occur in Hungary. Our service covers everything from technology design to implementation to full-scale testing and development.
