Upon agreement with the customer, machining of castings can be provided in co-operation with other divisions of ČZ a.s. or with external contractors. We carry out annealing of cast iron casts. Upon customer request, certificates are issued for the castings (general certificates or for individual supplies). Modern sand, chemical and metallographical laboratory equipment is used for the inspection and evaluation of input raw materials, production processes and castings. The laboratories have available e.g. DV4 spectrometer from BAIRD, carbon and sulphur fast-analyser from LECO, metallographic microscopes, hardness-testers etc.
The foundry has implemented and certified a quality management system according to ISO 9001:2000 and VDA 6.1.
