The foundry shop, built upon an area of 13,500 sq. meters, uses Krupp Industry technik GmbH (Germany) machinery, Wertli horizontal cont inuous casting furnaces and Outokumpu (Finland) technical knowledge. This factory has four melting and casting lines with electric induction and channel furnaces. 63000 tons of copper and copper alloys (such as brass, leaded brass, phosphorus bronze and cupronickel) can be produced in the foundry shop per annum. The products are divided into three main groups, named slab, billet and strip, which are in fact the incoming materials for rolling and extrusion shops.
The line 4 of this factory has the ability to continually cast strips with 14 by 500 mm. In this way it can afford for all the alloys which are problematic when produced by hot rolling or their cooling range is extended, such as leaded sheets and strips, phosphorus bronze and navy brasses.
Choosing and mingling the raw materials for alloy making is all done according to international standards. Material is identified in al l stages of production, in scrap form, in molten form, in billet or slab form, and in final configuration. After melting process, a sample is send to the lab via a pneumatic post and after being verified by X-ray test the casting is done.
After passing the quality control, finally the casted products are tagged with batch numbers and identification numbers and is graded prior to dispatch.
