Seven machines provide the production capacity. Four machines have so-called ‘hot’ technology, which use silica sands coated with thermosetting resins for the production of precision products. One of these has overhead filling and is emptied by overturning. The other three machines are of the “cold box” type.
The different technologies available enable core production to be tailored to the type of castings required by the customer.
The shop consists of:
- Sanding by belt and cluster shot blasters
- Manual / Robotised fettling
- Coating plant
FIM cast avails itself of an in-house tooling department to maintain and modify the customers’ patterns.
Upon request, the castings can also be supplied already machined.
