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.
Project plant optimization aluminium foundry
We are optimizing our plant (stirrer melting furnace 13 and burner system casting furnace 12) in order to ensure the minimization of actual energy demand and as a contribution to environmental protection. In total 669,13 tons of CO2 shall be saved per year by this measure.
This project will be realized with financial assistance from the European Fund for Rural Development (EFRE). Get more detailed information about IWB/EFRE by following this link www.efre.gv.at
