Special Casting Processes

The use of special casting processes allows the development of new alloys, production technologies and their testing in much more economical test quantities. The combination of special technologies with scientific methods of materials research allows an efficient development and their implementation of R&D results into industrial practice, especially in the field of high-performance applications such as aerospace.
