Cast steel is a ferro alloy with a carbon percentage of about 0.75% maximum. Steel castings are solid metal objects produced by pouring the liquid steel in a mold. They are available in many of the same carbon and alloy steels that can be produced as wrought metals. Mechanical properties for cast steel are generally lower than wrought steels, but have the same chemical composition. Cast steel compensates this disadvantage with the ability to form complex shapes in less steps.
We work together with local and foreign owned foundry’s in Vietnam which have excellent abilities to do steel casting. Also investment casting (lost wax casting) offers great possibilities due to the low labor costs in Vietnam. As investment casting is a quite labor intensive process to produce the molds
