EGM Industrieguss GmbH
Our cast iron foundry EGM looks back on a long history dating back to the founding year 1908 by Friedrich Siemens. Over the years, the casting plant was taken over again and again until it finally became part of the Hawle Austria Group in 2003 and has proudly contributed to water supply all over the world ever since.
The quality of the castings begins with the procurement of the raw materials. We communicate clear requirements to our suppliers and carry out a continuous incoming goods inspection.
The entire casting production is monitored with a continuous quality assurance system. In our laboratories, we carry out all the necessary tests, inspections, and documentation of quality-relevant data.
- Spectral analysis to determine the chemical composition of the melt
- Tensile tests according to EN ISO 6892-1
- Brinell hardness test according to EN ISO 6506-1
- Notched bar impact test according to EN ISO 148-1
- Dimensional tests using the latest 3D GOM measuring technology
- Micrographs and microstructure examinations
- Preparation of factory and acceptance test certificates according to DIN EN 10204
The properties of the molding sand are also monitored in the test laboratory, this is an important prerequisite for casting quality.
Our corporate policy in the areas of quality, environment, energy and safety, which meets the high standards of the Hawle Austria Group, also contributes to this.
EGM Industrieguss GmbH specialises in the production of cast iron, in particular grey and nodular cast iron. Pig iron, steel scrap and the company's own recycled material are used as input materials for melting the base iron. We have two crucible induction furnaces for melting the required amount of liquid iron.
Cold Box Core Production
Core shooting is a mechanical process for the production of cores. In the core shooter, a mold base material (quartz sand) mixed with a binder is introduced into the core box at a specific shooting pressure (2-6 bar) and brought to hardening by means of a catalyst. After being coated with an environmentally friendly water-based coating, it is inserted into the mold.
With our boxless moulding line, we produce small, medium and large series with unit weights of approx. 0.3kg to 12kg. The plant has a bale size of 480x600x150-395 mm and is able to produce up to 350 bales per hour. A fully automatic plant type P-10-S from the company HWS is used as the pouring device.
- Variable mould dimensions in thickness from 150-395 mm
- High reliability increases plant productivity
- Lower processing costs due to exceptional moulding accuracy
- Can also be used for small series
With our fully automatic, box-bound moulding line, we produce small, medium and large series with unit weights of approx. 10 kg to 150 kg. The plant has a box size of 1100x900x300+50/300 mm and produces up to 80 boxes per hour. A fully automatic plant type P-10-S from the company HWS is used as the pouring device.
- High and uniform compaction in the entire sand package
- Moulding of complicated model contours and extreme bales possible
- Reduction of the mould slope
- Reduction of fettling costs due to casting with the minimised degree of casting
- Excellent surface quality
The motto "We live diversity" is reflected in our employees. With a team of more than 10 different nations and cultures, we master our daily tasks together and constantly educate ourselves. We value good cooperation at eye level and transparency in the company. We keep our employees up to date on important topics with regular company meetings, and we do not neglect positive experiences such as company parties or small gifts on special occasions.
We are always open to curious and motivated personalities! Perhaps you too will find a suitable place with us:
