Foundry - Quality casting first time right

With one of the world's largest melting capacities for aluminum and copper alloys, we cast with the highest level of homogeneity of the molten material in the most powerful induction furnace systems.

Capacities

We offer manufacturing capabilities for components up to:

  • Diameter: 11.600 mm
  • Final weight copper alloys: 160 t
  • Final weight aluminum alloys: 70 t
  • Annual capacity: 14.000 t

Moulding

More than 20 moulding pits are used simultaneously to produce the castings. A crane capacity of 3 x 160 tons allows even the heaviest castings to be handled with ease. The know-how of our employees is supported by state-of-the-art computer technology. The latest software applications enable us to simulate the casting processes as well as the solidification behaviour of a casting.

Casting

Only a flawless casting piece guarantees a long lifetime of the propeller. In preparation of the production our engineers simulate and analyse the casting and solidification process. With the help of the largest medium frequency induction furnace in the industry and the provision of extensive services we ensure highest quality and security. The exact material analysis is conducted and documented in our in-house laboratory. The enormous capacity of the furnaces ensures the highest possible homogeneity of the molten material. This guarantees the unique strength and resilience of the MMG propellers.

Alloys

High-quality metals, the dosage of which is strictly monitored, guarantee the quality of our alloys. This includes the entire range of alloys approved by the classification societies for shipbuilding – and more. The use of state-of-the-art IT technology for casting and solidification simulation guarantees our customers maximum design fidelity and quality. Our engineers will be happy to support you in optimising your designs with their in-depth engineering expertise.
