Casting

In our casting facility, equipped with the latest casting technologies, with our modern and synchronized moulding lines that enables us to meet high volume casting requirements, we produce high quality, ductile, grey and malleable cast iron parts.

Trakya Döküm is a fully equipped casting facility having an annual capacity of 75.000 tons with its fully automatic 6 vertical moulding lines each with its own melting shop and auto-pouring furnace.

Trakya Döküm produces high quality ductile, grey and malleable castings within the weight range of 0,1 kg to 40 kg's with and without cores both in medium and large volumes. The foundry has the capability and experience to produce compacted graphite iron (GGV), high Si and SiMo alloyed castings for specialized automotive industry requirements.

Trakya Döküm is particularly skilled and widely experienced in the manufacture of safety critical parts for the automotive industry.

The most recent moulding line 6 is a Disamatic 270 A vertical moulding machine with 120-meter-long cooling track, its own sand plant and molten metal production units.

The line is housed in a state-of-the-art independent foundry with industry 4.0 infrastructure and equipped with fully automatic molten metal transfer and treatment system.

4th and 5th moulding lines are DISA 230 X machines each with 100-meter-long cooling tracks, housed in the custom-built state-of-the-art separate foundry building which is completely independent from other foundries. Both lines have their own molten metal production units, sand plant and core shop.

The first foundry with three separate casting lines has 3 Disamatic 2013 MK 5 type vertical moulding lines.

All these three lines have their own molten metal production units, and the lines have a sand plant and core shop facility that serve them jointly.

Strictly controlled casting process combined with long cooling tracks supplies consistent casting quality along with good machinability.

Each moulding line has its own independent medium frequency induction melting furnaces to give flexible production of metal grades.

The temperature of the liquid metal is continuously measured and its chemical composition is controlled after each melt.

As a critical component of the casting process, moulding sand is prepared and tested in the fully automated high-tech sand plants to achieve stable and reliable moulding properties.

Trakya Döküm has the capability and the experience to produce parts with complex core structure at high volumes. Cores are produced as hotbox, cold box or shell core, depending on the requirements and complexity of the produced parts.

The heated automatic pouring unit utilizes the Visipour camera system to precisely fill each mould with molten metal at the required temperature. There is also automatic control of mould inoculation to ensure consistent material quality.

Trakya Döküm meets all requirements of safety critical parts with dedicated non-destructive testing lines performing Eddy Current, sonic and crack detection tests. X-ray testing is also available in-house for sampling and part development.

Modern finishing operation equipment including automated grinding machines and trimming presses are also available in the foundry.
