Research & Development

Innovations in Casting

Our development expertise includes the areas of materials, design, processes and validation: we develop new, highly resilient materials, transfer bionic principles to our cast components, continuously optimize our manufacturing processes, and test our cast components for safety without compromise. Thus, our lightweight innovations realize the environmentally friendly car of the future.


Lightweight Material

Link Material

Our cast iron materials SiboDur and SiMo1000 and our cast aluminum material AluSiDur make lightweight design possible.


Lightweight Process

Link Verfahren

We optimize processes and use the most modern production lines with a high degree of automation. Thus lightweight design goes into production or mass production.


Lightweight Design

Link Design

Using virtual development, we simulate a cast component over its whole life cycle, from design to recycling.



Link Validierung

We test prototypes in our accredited testing laboratory so that our customers can bring new products to market faster.
