Casting

STEP-G started operations at the foundry with billet processing over 50 years ago. Since then, the technology has been continually upgraded. As a result, our highly experienced and committed team now work in a foundry where it produces products for a range of application areas — the automotive industry, the mechanical engineering and forging sector, and for the specialist trade. With its extensive and continually expanding know-how in the production of wrought aluminium alloys, STEP-G now sets standards in the quality of foundry products, including billet processing.

Our facility boasts two top-charged 12.5-tonne smelting plants and five homogenising furnaces with special cooling stations and special metal treatment processes involving IRMA, SNIF boxes and ceramic filters, STEP-G focuses on high-quality alloys in the 2xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx and 7xxx ranges.

Thanks to our small but flexible foundry facility, STEP-G is able to offer you other alloys. We are highly experienced in the field of customer-specific alloys and, with our 25 different moulds, are continually expanding.
