Fritz Winter iron foundry exhibits at the Vienna Motor Symposium

  • Broad range of products in powertrain and chassis technology for the various mobility and drive concepts in passenger cars and commercial vehicles
  • Exciting news on the resource-saving "ecoCasting process
  • Lightweight design concepts for various applications in cylinder crankcases and brakes

Stadtallendorf, April 14, 2022 - The 43rd International Vienna Motor Symposium is taking place this year with the question of which drive systems will play which role in the future mobility mix. At the booth of Fritz Winter Iron Foundry we will display from April 27 - 29, 2022, sustainable product solutions for powertrain and chassis technology, providing the iron foundry's customers with the best possible support for their environmental goals.

"I am delighted that we will be able to showcase our environmentally friendly and sustainable car and truck applications at the International Vienna Motor Symposium," says CEO Gottfried Sihler.  Fritz Winter is a reliable partner for the automotive and commercial vehicle industry today and will continue to be so in the future. The focus is on innovative lightweight solutions.

The focus of the trade show booth in Vienna is the so-called "ecoCasting process". Within this process, products are manufactured in a particularly environmentally friendly way. Production alone requires significantly fewer resources, such as energy and sand, than conventional or comparable processes. In concrete terms, this process saves around 22 million liters of drinking water and more than 1,100 tons of CO2 per year. Also, because the raw material iron scrap is a 100% recycled product, the products are absolutely sustainable and can be fully recycled again later. Since 1953, Fritz Winter Iron Foundry has relied 100% on sustainable raw materials as the basis for its products. What becomes an engine block or a brake disc may once have been a railroad track or a bicycle.

For more information about the products of Fritz Winter iron foundry, the experts will be available at the booth during the Vienna Motor Symposium.
