Because we have mastered three different aluminum casting techniques, we can select the casting process that fits seamlessly with your wishes and product. If your sales increases or your product changes, it may be favorable to also change the casting technique that is being used.
Thanks to our variety of casting techniques, we excel in producing prototypes as well as batches of up to 150,000 pieces per year. This is possible for products that weigh in between 50 grams and 35 kilograms. Depending on the product, we choose an alloy whose properties match the end application. In this process, we like to think along with you and strive for the best end result.

Three aluminum casting techniques under one roof
Sand casting is highly suitable for single pieces and small batch production. With aluminum sand casting, highly complicated casting can be produced in an extremely efficient manner.
Aluminum Sand Casting
Gravity die casting is the perfect choice for applications that require a solution that’s somewhere in between sand casting and high-pressure die casting. Aluminum gravity die casting requires lower investment costs than high pressure die casting, but is more durable than sand casting thanks to the usage of a steel die.
Aluminum Gravity Die Casting
High pressure die casting is extremely suitable for casting requiring high dimensional accuracy and for producing large batches. With high-pressure die casting, aluminum is injected into the die under high pressure.
