Casting – Air casting

The Metal Processing Centre is a joint venture between OCAS (research centre for the application of steel) and CRM (Centre for research in metallurgy) and is fully equipped to develop, produce, process and characterise tailor-made alloys. Together with its partner Sirris (collective centre of the Belgian technological industry) – experts in foundry – the MPC’s new melting furnaces will further enhance the support to the manufacturing industry. These air casters complement the vacuum and levitation melting and casting equipment.
