A foundry is a factory that produces metal castings. Metals are cast into shapes by melting them into a liquid, pouring the metal in a mold, and removing the mold material or casting after the metal has solidified as it cools. The most common metals processed are aluminium and cast iron.
Thanks to their low weight and the special blade design, Holmatro’s hydraulic cutters are ideal for cutting risers and feeders from aluminium castings.The lightest cutter only weighs 9.4 kg, and the special U-shaped blades "20 short" and "30 standard" pull the material towards the strongest point of the cutter.
Holmatro foundry wedges are developed for the nodular cast iron industry to remove feeders and risers from castings quickly and safely without damaging the casting itself, and with much less physical effort.
