One step ahead.

The Central Research and Development Department of the voestalpine Foundry Group conducts extensive research at the Linz and Traisen locations. The department focuses on the development of new casting materials such as high-temperature steels and special materials that are tough at subzero temperature for heavy machine construction as well as new processes such as welding processes, smelting reduction, molding material techniques etc., and their industrial implementation.

Our activities have made it possible for us to fall back on extensive experience and expertise and promote development from the lab to final production, all supported by comprehensive numerical simulation.
