HAI operates two of the most modern and flexible foundries in the whole of Europe. In Ranshofen (Austria) and Santana (Romania), 180,000 tonnes of wrought and cast alloys are produced per year – in the form of cast round billets and rolling slabs, or as two-piece ingots. The latest technology is employed: From the two-chamber melting furnace, through the hearth furnace with electromagnetic stirrer, right up to the tiltable rotary furnace. Consistently applied processes such as “Wagstaff AirSlip” guarantee the highest surface quality and optimum extrudability.
Supply reliability and quality assurance go hand-in-hand at HAI: This not only includes foundry processes but also the recycling of aluminium scrap, the inspection and preparation of the scrap, through to the melting, casting and homogenisation, including the 100% ultrasonic inspection.
