Light-Weight Construction

In the course of the minimisation of CO2 and the fuel consumption, essential importance has to be attached to the weight reduction of components. A special focus lies on the cylinder crank case as the heaviest single component of the engine.

Light is not hard for us

Our product portfolio is extraordinarily large. We produce brake discs and brake drums, flywheels along with coupling parts for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. With more than 800 different products with component weights ranging from 1 kg to 3,0 tons we meet any challenge. Thus, also cylinder blocks for passenger cars as well as cylinder heads and blocks for commercial vehicles are counted among our product range – this high diversification leads to profitable synergy effects and is of high environmental relevance.

Aluminium Was Yesterday

And as every kilo counts, one of our most important targets is the implementation of innovative light-weight technologies. With our new production technology ecoCasting we are setting new benchmark standards for quality and environment in the foundry industry.
