Avoid finishing operations of low added value.

Reduce operations, improve efficiency.

Manufacturing of as cast components, ready to be delivered.

Smart Casting® englobes the knowledge and the technologies developed by AZTERLAN to manufacture as cast parts that need no extra finishing operations of low added value.

With a holistic view over the casting process, Smart Casting® provides foundries:

  • Reduction of finishing operations 
  • Reduction of rejection rates
  • Elimination of intermediate stocks
  • Stabilization of production processes
  • Implementation of predictive control models and automatic actions to ensure the correct performance of the process

Shaping the
Foundry of the Future

“The Foundry of the Future is that of connected processes that is able to take advantage of the knowledge generated inside the company at the same time that it keeps learning from its manufacturing and market experience.

Along with a deep knowledge of metallurgy, Industry 4.0 technologies, advanced data management systems and machine learning technologies have landed in this industry to transform the way castings are conceived”.
