In the field of industrial manufacturing, a foundry plays a key role in shaping and manufacturing various metal components used in a wide variety of applications. These specialized facilities use advanced techniques and equipment to create castings accurately and efficiently. GIFF a.s. is an independent manufacturing unit that achieves significant success in the industry.

Slévárna GIFF a.s. and its versatility

Foundry GIFF a.s. boasts an impressive production capacity – producing approximately 5,500 tons of castings annually. These castings are produced in various weight categories (2-100 kg) and dimensions up to 700 mm. The foundry boasts the ability to work with a variety of materials, including ČSN EN GJL 150, ČSN EN GJL 200 and ČSN EN GJL 250 (GG-15 to GG-25, with GG-25 reserved for larger jobs), as well as ČSN ductile iron EN GJS 500-7 (GGG-50).

Advanced mold making

One of the key aspects of the success of GIFF a.s. is a modern and efficient mold manufacturing process. The foundry uses a state-of-the-art HSP-3D mold production line with molding frames measuring 850 x 850 x 200 mm, working on the principle of blowing with compressed air using SEIATSU valves with subsequent repressing. This technology, together with subsequent pouring, ensures accurate and consistent mold production. To further expand our capabilities, we recently introduced the HSP-3D2 line, which features improved fugitive emission capture. This high-tech line boasts a production capacity of 60 complete molds per hour. The molding process takes place into a synthetic bentonite mixture.

Foundry equipment

To support its production operations, GIFF a.s. maintains a wide range of devices. It also includes its own sand shop, which provides a reliable source of high-quality molding mixture for the casting process. In addition, the foundry boasts of a well-equipped core room, two INDUCTOTHERM ELPHIAC electric induction medium frequency furnaces with a capacity of 5 tons and two EGES electric induction medium frequency furnaces with a capacity of 6 tons. These furnaces are used to melt the metals used in casting.
