We offer our customers a personalised and tailor-made technical support.
Sharing your objective of industrial performance, we support our customers in designing a part or a set of parts so that we finally get a product that is as optimised as possible.
Choosing the right design and the most appropriate cast iron grade is absolutely critical at this stage.
CO-DESIGN and RE-DESIGN are suggested to your teams in order to find innovative solutions.
RAID – A team at your disposal for optimising your parts.
Creating and adapting casting tools to our manufacturing equipment ensures reactivity as well as cost optimisation and rationalization for the customer.
Our technical team looks for the best adapted solution based on the series depth or on the recurrence of orders on a given product.
3D printing may be used for very small series, enabling to suppress tooling costs or to reduce the parts’ manufacturing time.
SIF puts at your disposal its expertise in the metal industry
and its know-how for manufacturing cast iron
parts weighing from a few grammes to 80 kg,
in small or average series, in the desired grade.
Our automatised machinery gives us high flexibility and reactivity.
An “ASHLAND” cold core box
process going from 2,5 to 40 litres.
3D printing of a complex core
for manufacturing single complex parts or small series of complex parts.
The sand-casting process is fully automatised:
- IMPACT moulding site: 800 x 600 +/- 250 moulding box
- MULTIPISTONS moulding site: 600 x 450 +/- 150 moulding box
We are equipped with two 1,5-ton medium frequency electrical induction melting furnaces and two 2,4-ton electrical furnaces.
Our quality control equipment (thermal analysis, spectrometer, image analysis, impact machine) enables us to guarantee our metal parts’ reliability very early in the manufacturing process and to issue the material certificates required by our customers.
We also have a thermal treatment furnace which makes it possible to create special cast iron grades.
For your specific cast iron grades, please contact us!
According to the design, parts weight and depth of the series to be manufactured, we carry out:
- Traditional deburring
- Robotised deburring
We are equipped with 2 robotised deburring cells which enable to reduce staff painfulness associated with the parts finishing process.
