IMZ` Foundry Department was organized in 1950.
Since that time on order of various customers over 4000 various types of castings have been developed and
put into production.
Majority of the output volume compose steel castings produced by an unique investment technique (up to 2500
thousands per year), in lesser quantities we manufacture non-ferrous pressure-die castings and chill castings.
Technological processes and proper equipment enable casting parts of any steel or alloy grades the weight
of which ranges from few grams to 2 kg.
Grades of alloys to be used:
To cast parts a high-precision casting technique is used providing:
Production of castings marginally close to the configuration of finished parts; dimensional accuracy excepting
in majority of cases any machining; surface roughness, providing a marketable condition of finished goods.
Pre-starting procedure includes development of 3D casting model, its optimization for density and dimensional
accuracy (simulation of solidification); development of tooling, manufacture process and programs for CNC centers; making
fixtures, then a marketing lot of cast parts.
Ready-made goods are subjected to the following inspection: X-ray control, magnetic detection; luminescent
detection; chemical control, stress-strain properties and metal structure inspection, dimensional control.
