After the ecoCasting technology has been applied since 2015 already for the series production of passenger car cylinder blocks, it has been consistently further developed in the past years in order to be able to also produce heavy commercial vehicle cylinder blocks.
The new ecoCasting foundry resulting from these efforts offers ideal conditions in order to meet the future requirements of the customers from the commercial vehicle sector.
Our innovative pouring procedure gets along without mould sand. Thus, no sand has to be transported or deposited later on. The used core sand is completely recycled. Due to this mono-sand-system with a closed circuit of materials, the ecoCasting process is the new benchmark for sustainable pouring processes.
Lower energy costs
Precise with a low wall thickness
More favourable materials
Recyclable raw materials
Product and process available worldwide
Saving Drinking Water
100 % Green Electricity
By means of the oriented integration of components as well as the utilization of clearly lower production tolerances, we are in a position to support our global customers in achieving their CO2 emission goals by means of significant weight savings.
The further development of the ecoCasting technology does not only offer technical advantages but also considerably benefits the sustainability. The process consumes less energy and the component itself plays its advantages as lightweight. By means of the pouring process without mould sand, we save tons of CO2, millions of litres of water and close circuits of materials. This also leads to a reduction of the consumption of resources such as sand.
The high savings of water and CO2 have been rewarded with a six-digit subsidy amount from the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control.
